Green Mountain Club: Hiking Mt. Meru & Kilimanjaro

Join Cecilia Elwert as she takes you through her nineteen-day trek to Mount Meru, the fifth highest mountain in Tanzania, and the warm up trek, 19,340-foot Mount Kilimanjaro. She took side trips to Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park, and highlights time among the locals: planting trees, meeting a rifle ranger in Arusha National Park, singing with school children, and hiking with their outstanding guide, Yusuf.

Middlebury Five-O: Susan Shashok & Robin Scheu

The owner of Caroline’s Dream, a local handcrafted skincare product
business, and the Director of the Addison County Economic Development
Corporation collaborate in this wonderful show about community-oriented
entrepreneurship and a revolutionary approach to business funding. Susan
talks about her paleo-friendly, locally-rooted business model. She
introduces her Yuba delivery bicycle (a truly magnificent specimen),
partially funded through a Clean-Energy Grant awarded by the ACEDC. These
engrossing and articulate women go on to explain how Caroline’s Dream is
planning to expand through a Kiva Zip loan – an innovative funding
mechanism poised to transform small business lending and the fabric of
economic development.
