The 2020 Roaring Stories theme is “Climate of Love”:
Have you ever fallen in love with a place — the same way you can fall in love with a person — and seen it change before your eyes? Maybe because of climate change? What happened next? We invite you to bring stories of your love affair with the planet: journeys through environmental romance, connection, learning, loss, intimacy, regeneration, activism.
The evening’s entertainment includes true stories told by six Roaring Fork Valley locals and curated by Alya Howe, drinks from Marble Distilling Co, and new this year, the opportunity to bring your own picnic to enjoy at your personal hay bale table. You can also check out the farm on a self-guided tour and stop by CORE’s engagement station for a chance to win a Goal Zero Solar Party Pack.

5:30-6:15pm: Self-guided solar tour
6:15pm: Live stories under the pole barn
6:15pm: Livestream goes live
The goal of Roaring Stories is to help residents of the RFV see that they are powerful change agents, able to create impact in their own communities. This underscores our collective work to protect natural resources, save energy and cut carbon emissions.
Rock Bottom Ranch is located at 2001 Hooks Spur Road in Basalt. Click here for a MAP and directions.
Roaring Stories is a RAIN OR SHINE event. Please dress for the outdoors with additional layers for our mountain evenings, appropriate footwear for the farm, and sunglasses for sunset. Stories take place in the covered setting of the pole barn.

Mac grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, where energy, water and the environment were frequently the topic of dinner table conversations. He enjoys taking part in all of the incredible outdoor opportunities the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer. Backpacking, hiking, skiing, disc golf and playing soccer are just a few of the ways he might to spend a nice day. On the not so nice days, you will find him listening to new music and working on his latest knitting project.
