"And it's like, and now that relationship, he said, I don't want to race for you guys. It's really, really fractured. And I think that it's a battle of a driver doesn't want to race for you. What does that say? Even if you say, well, here's your contract. It doesn't exactly so seize for like a happy relationship in the future. So yeah, it's really, really messy. I do wonder if maybe seeing how things rumble on the next few weeks, everyone may say, right, let's put our arms down and talk about this and get something sorted. So people are as happy as can be. But I think either way alpena losing big time in this. But also for piastre himself, he's already a meme on the Internet. All the brands are getting involved. Isn't it? And it might not last forever, but he's a young, he's a young guy. It's not a situation that he himself would have engineered, surely. But yeah, I'm not saying he's a joke, but the situation is a joke and he's got his name all over it. It's not great, is it? And I saw he was liking the tweets about Mercedes were making jokes and putting funny pictures up and he's liking Ryanair did a really good one we saw. And he's liking those tweets, right? So he's involved in the whole situation. Anna somebody posted yesterday online a picture of otmar in 2005 in Honda gear because BAR Honda, Williams fighting over button who wanted to break a contract and move that went to arbitration or Formula One's version of that. BI Honda one and otmar was the head of the auto sport the motor sport division at Honda at that time. So none of these guys are new to contracts. This is not his first rodeo, and he's won in the past, but as you say, if a driver doesn't want to race for you, like you can't strap them in to the seat and say drive fast. So it's a real messy situation. And again, all the management has changed to understand. So that team losing Daniel Ricciardo in the way that it did the war of words that happened there, that was a messy end with their star driver at the time Daniel Ricciardo star was still very, very in the ascendancy almost because he had formed that team around him and was starting to do pretty well. He jumped ship to McLaren, all knew management at instant Renault Alpine name. And then if you zoom out a little bit just to get your final thoughts on this to sort of the thousand feet view, we've got other teams that haven't sorted their seats yet, Hassan Williams et cetera. And then the 10,000 feet of you, you've got VW group investment, possibly Audi coming in, Porsche coming into the sport. So Aston are talking about a 5 year plan to be championship winning team. So how do you think this is playing out in the wider scheme final word kind of Alex just your thoughts on this kind of this bigger setting itself up for the future and these drivers that we're going to have in Formula One, Lando, George, Oscar, this kind of next generation, everyone's kind of posturing to get those drivers in their teams. I think for Lando Norris and George Russell doesn't change much at all. He gets a drive, his talent will shine through. But what he really does cement, particularly the fact that Alonso jumped ship is things do not look good for Alpine because Aston is still rebuilding. It's doing its redoing its factory, a lot of investment there. And if we already did that, like completely changed the end stone base, people were talking about their years ago, came back to the team, couldn't even find their way around the factory because the buildings had physically changed so much. So if all that investment's gone on, and Alonso still thinking, why should I stay? The monies enough to tempt me away and this one's a building project. It's not an alpena at the front of the field. So ultimately, the whole situation, it's a disaster. And who could help you go racing with Luke next year if it's an Oscar for the ashtray. I mean, yeah, I've seen suggestions of Pierre gasly. That's definitely not happening. Why not, a French team? French. He's under contract with Red Bull and for alfajor and although there's no feature of him at Red Bull, then I think they wouldn't be looking to let him go, be the personality clash would not work between him and Esteban ocon. So I think that probably wouldn't happen. I honestly, I think Daniel Ricciardo, that would be my if I was going to say who right now will be racing for our P next, he's I say Ricardo is going to go back to end zone. He'll go back. He knows a lot of the people even if the top level management have changed. And I think that change also means that the wounds of healed from a couple of years ago. Half an hour has spoken and said that there would be no issue bringing Daniel back. So that I reckon is the most likely outcome in this. And some good seats on the grid, Williams and Alex Albon staying there, but no news on second seat. Not yet, no, but again, that is something that they were looking at piastres partner album for next year. Valves has not happened. And now I think they can look to maybe formula two Logan Sargent there, young American driver. I mean, that would have a big appeal for their American owners, but also for Formula One as a whole. I think that would be a that would be a good move if they went for it. Nick de vries is another option, the formula E champion. He's done an FP one for them this season. He was on the short list for last year before they went for Alex Albon. So yeah, I think Williams, they've got a couple of options, but if I were them I maybe buy my time and just see how this sort of Alpine McLaren situation plays out and if anyone falls through the cracks, they might say, well, it's us or nothing and yeah, do you want to keep racing in Formula One? We could offer you a home. Wow, wait. An

"They go take a job and consulting or invest making they never become entrepreneurs, even though that was what they wrote their essay about. And that was what they're excited about. So I added to the class a whole part on, okay, wait a second. What is it you really want to do with your life? How would you make a plan to go do that? What are your limiting beliefs? What are the things? What are your fears? So we have a whole thread. Probably 25% of the class is on those things because I'm like, what's the point of teaching people to be entrepreneurs if they don't become entrepreneurs? Right. So I've invested a lot into personal growth and that's a really, really fun part. So tell us a little bit about your approach, what's your process like to finding a potential acquisition target and since we look at both private and public markets, what do you think of in terms of valuation? How do you come up with a number? Yeah, great questions. We have a large team that looks for potential companies. We have actually 52 people at Alpine and in our portfolio companies are looking for deals. 52. 52. Oh, so that's a lot of people. How big is the firm overall? Overall, if you include the CEOs and training and your ten 99 consultants, we probably have roughly 200. All right, so that's a decent size. The 52 also includes a number of people that are working at the company's doing sourcing, but they're doing the same thing. They're calling companies looking for investments. So we have 52 people looking for deals and then a lot of those conversations are directly with founders. And what we're trying to do is figure out the way we think about it is we can pay a price that we can hit our target returns, which I can't talk about on, but we can hit our compliance requirements. So we can pay a price that we could hit our target returns with like a 70% base case, and then we need there to be a lot more upside to that than downside. So we want there to be a case where we could hit many multiples of our target returns. And so based on that, we kind of back into a price. And then where we get in trouble, or where things get turned down, investment committee is when everything in the world has to go perfectly to hit that target. Because I've been in this business for 28 years and when you start pricing in perfection, that's a time when you realize you're overpaying. So it's that 70% probability and lots of margin of safety thing that as someone who's a little bit more senior at our firm, I have to bring that to the discussions. Yeah, that perfect ten stuff the landing, those are the outliers

"Summer is definitely, I would say my favorite time to scout. For a lot of reasons. One, it allows me to get out if I'm going to make some kind of camping trip or do some kind of trip anyways. I generally base it around scouting because you can go out. I can take those mornings and even if it's a family trip, go out mornings and evenings and get that looking in kind of get a lay of the land, but also just enjoy things that I would during the summer as well. It's just a great time. But there's another reason why it's a really good time. And it's because animals behavior that time of year lends itself to being able to find them actually easier than other times of the year. Things like, oh, it's hot and it'd be difficult to find deer Elk or whatever you're hunting. But one way that you can hone in on where deer are and find them is just focusing in on their needs at that particular time of year. So let's break down the needs of the three main species that western big game hunters will be hunting this season. It would be Elk mule deer. We'll even throw, you know what? I'll even throw in whitetails and antelope. And the white tails just for guys that maybe aren't hunting out west, but hunting wherever you're at. Summer scouting can be a really good time because what especially deer and Elk are focusing on. They're growing their antlers, right? They're velvet. They're growing their antlers. And to grow those antlers, it takes a lot of energy. And they get that energy from their food source. So they actually need to eat a lot more during the summer than other times a year. I've heard that for Elk or deer to grow their antlers. It's the same amount of energy expulsion is a cow to grow a calf. So you think about, wow, it's like antlers is the fastest growing bone. They need a lot of nutrients to keep putting that antler mass out there, right? They got to just keep growing, growing, growing so they need to just keep bulking up. So food can be a primary source of areas to locate these particular animals. So let's think about let's break it down even further. Primarily grazers. And so they're going to be eating those grasses. Now where are those grasses that summertime years things start to dry out? Generally, it's up higher in the Alpine. Because there's more water source there, the grass is greener, don't dry out as much. And so they're generally whatever your area looks like in that higher elevation. The same with mule deer, the mule deer will do the same thing because one they can escape the heat a little bit. It's cooler up there. They like to keep their antlers less, I would say they're more sensitive that same year, so they're trying to keep them out of the real thick dense stuff. Not that they won't be in brush, not that they won't be in trees, but that real thick jungly stuff they can just tear up antlers and real thick dense brush. They're going to kind of avoid. So a little bit more open areas with high quality feed. And areas that are of good food sources so they can bulk up. The same goes for white tailed deer, whether you're in the flats and near agriculture, near whatever you're near. Summertime, they are more tied to those food sources that can be more patterned more.

"They were the best to showcase and support? So we really went on the advisement of Walmart and the brands had promised we're showing promise within that outlet. And they are also very popular in and of themselves. Crayon case is one of Oprah's favorite things. You know, so that's why they had recommended those. And we're here care. For adults only not children. In young kings is here. For little African American males. We're primarily female. So that rounded out, okay, we have a female brand on the display. Now we have a male brand on the display. And very close to here is cosmetics. In their so therefore, we had Kim crayon case. So we have a lot of small business owners that listen to this radio show. What types of things do small business owners need to have already in place if they're going to attract a big brand like cream of nature and revlon? So first I would say a concept, a service or a product that has a new fresh, unique positioning. And they have a unique approach at solving the needs of a clearly defined target audience that has unmet need. That has an unmet need. And ask themselves can provide that solution the scaled up. And can it be profitable? Does the concept have longevity and the ability to live beyond the short term? Does it have legs? Can it evolve? And then I think it's also important that they have some sort of track record. Besides their cousins and their family, right? Yes, yes. Show, it's very much like Shark Tank, right? It's like, well, how much what have you done so far? And how much have you sold? And how much is enough for a large brand to get interested? A hundred units, a thousand units, 10,000 units. What's your sense of that? My sense is a $1 million. How many units is going to be? Based on how what the price is. But I would say, if you can show that you can get a $1 million from that you're getting a $1 million or you can generate a $1 million, then I think you get somebody's attention. You know, the biggest problem that a lot of these types of brands face is getting into any retail because you're just not big enough. How do you get a $1 million of retail sales? Does it have to be direct or should you try to get into small boutiques and things of that nature? I think now with social media and digital, I think if a company can build the web at first have a product concept service, right? They can position it and target the right folks. Socially and digitally, and show that they are moving. I'm going to call it their widgets. That way, and getting great feedback, your reviews are good. Your ecommerce sales are there. I think you take all of that, and then you show it to your bigger organizations. You also go to the shows. There will be trade shows where buyers and marketers and investors, they walk those shows to see what's big and what's new or what has the potential to be big and new to round out what they bring to their customer. Stephanie, last question I want to ask you is I really think that now more people are starting to support local small businesses. This has to do with supply chain issues. With COVID and miraculously Amazon wasn't able to deliver in two days. So people started to turn to smaller businesses. Is that something important? Is that something that's important for the future? Oh, absolutely. When you look at that African American community or any community, small businesses in the neighborhood are the cornerstones, stone of that community. They are what home is all about. You don't have to get in your car to drive 20 minutes to The Home Depot. You could just walk up to your local hardware store and buy you doing that. You are keeping the community good and you're also helping one of your neighbors feed their family, so to speak. And when you look in the black community, it's like it's always been about the stylus, the beauty salon, the barbershop, the clean hers, you know, the grocery store. And the families or the entrepreneur that owns those. They know you personally, if you don't have enough money on this trip, it's like, we'll work with you. And all of those things build stronger community. It builds pride and it builds a character of people. And I think as a people, our aim is always should be the head, not the tail. And the road to manifest that is ownership in power, right? And so when you have the ability to do that, you can build generational abundance, you know? And when you have that, nobody, you know, that's power. You can take your own way. Nobody is directing your being. But you. I love that. Stephanie, thanks for being on the show.

"Everybody is actually eating there as well. The top shots and I could meet some guys and talk and I mean, I did not hear anything bad as well from my Friends. Definitely not. No, I had very cool discussions actually. And how is it being in the Olympic village where it was just closed it was just the coaches and the Olympics and the athletes and that was it because of COVID. Yeah, exactly. You know, I have to say, my friends who were at other Olympics, they told me for sure it's super different to other Olympics. And I would say, you know, in the Olympic village itself, you could move move around quite free. But, you know, you had this daily COVID test, all the Chinese in this full bodysuit, all the time. I think I did not see any Chinese face for the whole two weeks. And it seemed a little bit alien like, you know? So yeah, and after two weeks, it's getting a little bit, I was okay to leave. The village after two weeks, you know? It was a little sterile, right? So I left Carlos. In four years, the Winter Olympics is going to be in Milano. What do you think? Are you going to try to compete or you're moving on to something else? Actually, I'm thinking about both. You know, my goal was always. And you know, I'm 43 when I started this project. I was already like you were the oldest. You're the oldest gear at the games. Exactly. Exactly. So even from beginning, like 5 years ago, I was thinking to myself that I want to build up something like ski federation as well. And my goal was always as well to find some young Indians around the world who have a similar background. Like I have, you know, like I do, like growing up in a country where you can ski already already have maybe 5th competitions, et cetera. And then I would love to give them an easier path. Let's say to the Olympics than I had because we have been founding now the Donna's key association. And I've been named secretary general. As well. And I already last week already a young Ghanaian from Germany was contacting me actually his mom. And but he's a cross country. He makes cross country, not Alpine, but that's okay, because we take cross country as well. So that's amazing. You know, and that's what I wanted. Maybe some young guy see me and think like, hey, this crazy old guy could achieve that. Then I can do that. You know? I think it's wonderful. And that would be make the super happy. On the other side, I feel still there's still some fuel in the tank. So I'll decide in two years when the qualification period starts. I will decide if I will start a qualification again. And it depends as well like I told you, I mean, if I have like three or four young guys, then I let them do the things and then I maybe just go as secretary general then to the Olympics with them. And yeah, I lead them. So at this point, I don't know yet, but I could imagine everything at this point. Well, Carlos, I have no doubt that somewhere along the line, Ghana's gonna be a great skiing powerhouse to really compete for the medals against all the Nordic nations. So we dream of. Where can people follow your where can people follow your progress on the web? You mean on social media? Yeah, where can they follow you on social media? Is my I can text you, I can text you on your number. All right, great. Fantastic. That's my, that's my Instagram account. And we're actually communicating over Instagram and this is linked to Facebook as well to my Facebook account and how soon announced that we found it now that she kind of she association besides that just to tell you the African continental key confederation has been found in 2000 19. And I will take function a role there too. We are just discussing and we have big plans there. As well to have 5 or 6 key results from northern Africa to South Africa to give some young guys the opportunity to see in the regions and I mean the dream is maybe in 15 years as you tell, maybe we can compete with the African team at the Olympics for a mellow.

"Well, most of the metals for the Winter Olympics are either one by Nordic countries or other wealthy countries. But what is it like to compete in the Olympics? What you're virtually have no chance of even coming close to a medal. My first of two guests is Benjamin Alexander, who's Jamaica's first Alpine skiing Olympian having just competing in the Beijing games. He's an unlikely Olympian because he started skiing at 32 and he's from a country, of course, that has no snow. Benjamin, welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. Of course, this reminds us of cool runnings, right? 1988, the bobsled team. Absolutely. And that was a big inspiration for this story. Now, did you talk to those guys? Yeah, I have contact with a couple of the actors. The main guy Leon Maliki over and also I have contact with some of the original members of the actual bobsled team from 1988, one of whom became a mentor of mine over the last two years. So you got started 32, just 6 years ago, you're a former DJ it's reported. How'd you get involved in this? Yeah, so DJing got me into skiing, believe it or not. DJing took me all around the world. I performed over 5 continents over 30 countries and met all kinds of weird and wacky people that were doing interesting things like skiing like kite surfing. And just by proximity, just decided that I wanted to get involved. Well, a lot of people think they want to get involved, but you got to have some skill here. What made you think you had the skill? So look, the initially all I wanted to do was to be able to keep up with my friends. Some of my friends are professional skiers. But I just wanted to be able to scale alongside them. And then as a mixed race person, you always represent the minority of any group. So to my black friends, I'm the white person or Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, if you remember that show. And so my white friends on the black guy. And so skiing being predominantly white, I was the black representative. They knew of my Jamaican heritage. They would always make the jokes about core runnings and the Jamaican bobsled team. And they said, you should go to the Olympics. And in 2018, I went to the Olympics as a spectator. I had a wonderful time and realized there were only three athletes that were representing a country that is such a powerhouse in the summer games. And I just thought perhaps there's an opening for me there right there. It hasn't been an easy route. I trained over 450 days over the last two years. But fortunately, the International Olympic Committee is trying to change that statistic that you mentioned right at the start of this fit, but all of the medals are sucked up by about ten countries. So the international nipple committee is really trying to promote diversity by allowing every country to send forth one male and one female athlete as a big criteria qualifier. Now this means you're going to have no chance of getting anywhere near the medals. But you will demonstrate a level of proficiency and safety and you're not going to kill yourself on CB screens in front of the eyeballs of a billion people. And that's how I was able to qualify. Although for some people, that would be good entertainment. Unfortunately, right? Absolutely. I mean, look, the crash from the 1988 Jamaican boss city is probably the most watched thing from any Olympics of any time ever. Absolutely. I loved your quote in New York Times and says, if the Olympics is just about ten countries that suck up the metal, then the other 190 countries get bored, and that's bad for all of us. And I could not agree more. I'd like to see people from other countries that don't have this kind of experience. So I think although it's been controversial, I think the Olympic Committee is going about the right way. How did you support yourself through this because I assume that Jamaica doesn't have a skiing federation or anything like that? Well, yeah, so they actually do have a ski federation and have had for almost 25 years despite the fact that I was the first racer to qualify. An English man who spent the last 15 years of his life on the island unfortunately passed away 6 months ago, set up the federation in the late in the late 90s with a view of creating a senior that could follow in the image of the Jamaican bobsled team. It took us 25 years for that to happen. But from a funding point of view, it was also funded. I put myself into 6 figures of debt, which is almost, which is sadly not uncommon. The average Olympian walks out of that closing ceremony about 50 to $70,000 in debt. But by virtue of having lived an incredible life with my time as a DJ and the incredible friends they met along the way and the fact that I worked in finance ahead of time, I knew that if I qualified, my story would be compelling enough to go out there and find sponsors and support. And that's exactly what I was able to do to recuperate all of the outlay that I made to qualify. So what was really the drive behind this Benjamin, I know to keep up with your Friends, but why compete at the Olympics? May I assume just qualifying is really an achievement on its own. That's really your medal. Absolutely. So just qualifying was my gold medal of being the flag bearer of such a maker was my typical goal. Yeah, that was fantastic. Yeah. As I think quoted many times. And look, I'll be honest, I like to do outlandish, complicated things. And that's what this started off as merely a personal challenge. But when George Floyd was killed in Minnesota in 2020, a lot of people became fascinated with my story. A lot of people who went to sports was screaming out for stories of diversity, positive stories of diversity having success in the winter in winter sports. And so immediately I became a sponsored athlete for the first time in my life at the age of 37. And I received so much media attention that was well above the skiing abilities that I had at that moment. And the whole story flipped. Now instead of being someone that just wanted to go to the Olympics as a personal challenge, I actually realized that I was being kind of pushed up into this role of being an ambassador for diversity and went to sports. And I started to really lean heavily into that. That moment in time has given me so much air time that's given me so much coverage and support that I am now keen to repay that back and to be a good ambassador for the sport. And so I'm doing lots of charity work, I'm hoping to become the president of the Jamaican ski federation and going to Jamaica in a couple of weeks time to discuss that. And I've already identified the next generation of Jamaican athletes who have a much better chance of coming closer to the leaders than I ever would because they started skiing before they were two years old and they've been ski racing for the last ten years. So it's always really hard for the first person to do something to prove the concept to prove that it can be done. And then everyone follows in the air pocket behind that first bird in a flock of birds moving and has a much easier ride. And I hope to be heavily involved in the next generation of jamaicans and other similar nations getting to the Winter Olympics. You know, a lot of us will watch the Alpine skiing events and we say, you know, we can't believe that people are doing that. It's reported on your profile that you are quote absolutely fearless. Where do you get that from? Because so many of us are so afraid in so many things we're.

"Display it. It made it very accessible for everyone to come. But i think for your question with the interns is that yes we do time. Make sure that they have a project each season and we tried to cater to their expertise as they come in adjusts to what we think would do very well but this year we really want to focus on our labeling in the gardens the snow takes a very big toll honor labels which is very Tasking job for for any of us takes a lot of time in energy to always produce them and make them so. That's something that one of the insurance myself will be really focusing on this year so that the public can really understand what these plants are because overtime labels disappear they break just due to the nature But in the long-term yeah we we always try to just make sure that the insurance get the most out of their summer and come away with a really positive experience and hopefully inspire to become future rock garner's or alpine unplanned easiest. Any specific species. You're super excited to be growing this year. That are new to the garden. Chance yes So last year we built a crevice garden dedicated to the caucuses of georgia. Armenia and azerbaijan in it was very successful over winter with We didn't lose many plants so we have many new dramas and edry anthon smother things that Have over wintered done very well and they were actually collected by penny odeon team. That went out to georgia a few years ago and then grown from seeds so these are all wild collected from those countries and now they are living in our collection so that is something that we're very excited about having in our collection ask this year so as you both look to the future with a very solid number of years for both of you in this place in in the heart of this organization and maybe this is you know where You could talk a little bit more about the book as well. But i would love to have each of you share your greatest joys in this work and in being a partner to this garden you know. There's that wonderful quote that we exploit what we value but we protect what we love and I would love to have you. Have you share your own personal joy in this work and maybe there's an anecdote you can share to illustrate tat. And when i go ahead and start with you nick and then we'll move back to nikola so there's nothing greater than seeing something that you've collected in the wild that you watch screw in and then grow through the next winter and baby it through the summer to get up to size and then grow into the gardens and then finally see it flower. I think there's something just something that can explain. That makes me so happy to see it. Takes so much time for just something from seed to bring such joy to me. it's also interacting with the public. I really enjoy that aspect of what we do. Every day i love talking to the public and educating them and meeting people from all around the world and that's what public horticulture is jimmy. And it's brought me to so many places around the world as well and it's so connected it's such a small world. I think that's something that is so different from just maybe landscaping gardening for your stuff for yourself that public horticulture is this much bigger idea that really connects botanic gardens and people from everywhere. Yeah thank you. Thank you and nikola. What about what about for you and your great joys in this work i think for me what's given me. The greatest joy is To be able to take the conservation alpine plants to sort of almost global important level. We attended the international alpine botanical gardens in france a couple of years ago and connected with the alpine gardens in europe which was very exciting for me off focuses mostly on conservation north america. But i feel that for a small garden. We've really really playing the leadership role in this particular ecosystem by deciding that you know this is. This is something that should be focus of a garden named and alpine garden. I think that it. It's been really very exciting to me to see what a small garden can do. By focusing our resources cleverly and strategic clay we have created the first list of alpine's of north america that something as simple as that. You don't realize that it doesn't actually exist in. It's not really until you understand. All those plants are the know whether you're reaching milestones in a in. Conserving them uncertain. I really feel going forward. We you know we. We may not be wait. We have a limited size of our building where we can have staff but we're going to increasingly work with other botanic gardens to be focusing on plants in different regions of north america and playing the leadership role of for me has been the most exciting parts of our evolution as a god. I am so excited about the new book on the roof of the rocky mountains. The botanical legacy of the betty ford alpine gardens veils alpine treasure written by sarah chase.

"On growing as many alpine's we can find here in colorado in the gardens of self and we've been doing a lot of collecting with their conservation team and then propagating them to grow in the gardens as well So that's a big focus for myself and for nikolai to keep growing north american alpine's because they do so well they. They are adopted our climate. Yeah and so how many I don't know if you can give this to us. In you. know like acres or areas. How big is the actual cultivated space that you are managing at this point. Where about four and a half five acres of cultivated space. It's hard to put that but because these plants are so small with so concentrate so we have over about three thousand species. Different plants and You know you could within about a hundred square foot area. Have about two hundred species. So i want you to repeat that you have three thousand different species there at the betty ford alpine garden. Roughly around two to three thousand species in a relatively small space. You have a remarkable number of species growing and you've used a couple of phrases. Nick that want to unpack a little bit for listeners. You we were talking about trade it you know like a more standard perennial garden and then being different than the rock garden and the alpine plants. Can you can you run down. And and maybe both of you will weigh in on this about some of the characteristics that make an alpine plant an alpine plant because they are perennial. There are annuals but they have these characteristics. That really stand out as alpine conditions have evolved them to survive. Yeah so true. Alpine plant is a plant that would grow all ivan and all the time he's plants are very small.

"Back now to our conversation with nikola ripley. The executive director and nick core tens the curator of plant collections at the betty ford alpine gardens in vail colorado as we come back nikola shares more about the history and early founding of the gardens. And why and how this impacts all of us as gardeners and caring land stewards. So the goddamn was first started by a local nursery owner hugh who met sort of an entrepreneur. Philanthropist helen fritsch in about nineteen eighty five they met together and said that they had divisions four doing a public garden in vail and the primary reason for initiating. The garden was to show people in this new community. What kind of things will grow at eighty. Two hundred thousand people are moving in. The town was very new and people didn't realize that they could garden at eight thousand two hundred feet and they didn't realize what kind of plants they could grow so the initial vision for the gardens with to demonstrate celo local population that there are hundreds and hundreds of plants that not only will grow in that mountain environment. But really thrive in it. We say it's like being in a florus cooler that night. See you know the the plant stave vibrant looking really good for a lot longer than they would. Lower elevations the in the early days. That was the you know. the impetus for the garden in so in nineteen eighty-six. They formed an organization cold the veil alpine garden foundation and they did a garden. They were given a piece of land by the local authority. The town vail in front of the gerald ford amphitheater in ford park and they did a small cotton and showed the town. What kind of things that they would like to do in public garden in vail and it was very much not what the town expected. I don't think it was Rock garden with plants from the himalayas. And you know plants alpine plants from all over the world but it was beautifully put together and the town was very pleased and Offered the group a- lodger area to keep spreading and so in nineteen eight. They were starting on the next phase of the garden which was what we called the mountain perennial garden at that time and It was a decision was made to approach. Betty ford and say you know. This garden is developing in ford park next to the gerald ford amphitheatre. With your you love of gardening. We would very much likes to name the gardens in honor of betty ford and she was absolutely delighted and she joined the team that was starting the gardens and became a great spokeswoman for the gardens she would attend all of fundraising events and turned the first shovel of dirt in cottons and cut the ribbon to open them and it was to to have invitations to join president. Mrs flew in the gardens was was great boost to the group that was getting. The gardens started when president ford was in the white house. He used to come out to veils so often that they began to call vail the western white house. He loved skiing and was a big outdoorsman and They did so many things for this community and really fail on the map. And that's why there are so many things here named in their honor. They had an apartment here where they stayed in the wintertime and then eventually moved to beaver creek and spent their summers here. Once they were you know past enjoying the skiing. And so that i think takes us quite nicely back to you nick to tell us a little bit more about the scope of the gardens now and the collection you are rating And maybe a will start with that so looking back on the before and after pictures is quite dramatic being the trees that were planted only being five feet tall now being thirty to forty five feet tall and how open it was compared to two now and over the years. They have expanded the gardens dramatically. When i came here the rock garden had been built in two thousand but over the last eleven years expanded even more a new visitor's center education centre with an alpine house. we have about four new rock gardens. That were bill in the last couple of years. We're also hoping to expand into further parts of park while down the road but Yeah the collection has grown dramatically since its inception and each year lends itself to a new area. I think to improve on as gardens age so do the soda plants and so do trees get big and we wanna keep them the theme that we are a rock alpine garden but at the same time we want to appeal to all audiences that come here that do wanna see some perennials. And not just the alpine rock garden implant. So there's a fine balance of how many rock garden areas we should do versus kind of some of the more traditional perennial gardens as well but my favorite part is really building the rock gardens and using different types of rock to create a natural landscape fuel for these plants to live. And so it's really figuring out what what type of plants grow better in certain parts of the garden and then in the last couple of years we've really made sure to focus on curing a alpine's of the world collections. So we have several different rock gardens dedicated to regions of the alpine regions of the world. Such as the himalayas central asia alps south africa of course north america which is one of our largest collections specifically alpine's of colorado so the alpine's of colorado collection is really the big focus for me.

"I realized after about eighteen months. Since i was going to need a high degree to to really move up in the world i chose bangor university which is university college of north wales in just in snowdonia just outside the snowdonia national park I did Spent a couple of years in bangor studying ecology and did my thesis on the alpine plants of snowdonia which leads to doing some quit. The institution of terrestrial ecology based in bangor. Which is a british government research branch for ecology and started to work. More work called the alpine's of snowdonia. During that time. I saw a job advertisement with denver botanic gardens and penalty calamities who was then curator of the alpine collection. I applied for the position but by that time they had filled the job and but instead of throwing my resume away they send to talk to. Betty ford alpine gardens where they were in the early stages of developing the gardens and So i came out from england to work for the nursery that was growing the alpine plants for the gardens. It was a number of years before the gardens was hiring staff. So i continued to work for the nursery for a few years and then i had a job as environmental consultant locally doing environmental impact reports and a wetland delineations and then Was invited to become the director of horticulture with in the gardens. Which was the first time that a position like that In that was about two thousand and then in two thousand eleven. I became the director of the garden. Yeah i want to. Now move. Which i think is a perfect segue from from what you have just told us into a little bit of history of the betty ford alpine gardens. And i i want to have you start. Nikola with giving us some definitions. 'cause we use these terms and i think people have a general concept of them but not a very specific one in in many cases. Can you go ahead and give us a little bit of overview of the general idea of alpine environment or gordon. Both and then maybe give us a little bit of differentiation. Between the alpine environments you were experiencing in In the united kingdom and in snowdonia versus what you are experiencing there in vail colorado. So we define the alpine environments as the land above the trees. The land beyond the trees can grow. And what's very interesting to a lot of people is to realize that that's not just at a certain elevation that elevation changes depending on many different things but particularly on altitude and latitude so areas are very northerly latitude. All very salei in latitude can have alpine plants at much. Lower elevations right and so give listeners a sense of exactly what kind of elevation and geology. You are gardening in there in vail colorado. So we're at eighty two hundred feet here in veils so we're actually not in the alpine environment exactly in vail itself wearing the montaigne environment. The timberline in colorado is at around about eleven thousand feet depending on whether you're on a north facing slope or south facing slope so lots of things effect that exact treeline but generally speaking in colorado. It's about eleven thousand feet so at the gardens were in a beautiful setting and were surrounded by mountains all of which are alpine and rise up to fourteen thousand feet of in colorado mounted the holy cross is our closest fourteen thousand foot peak but we are in a very good position to be able to grow a.

Nick join me today to share more about their high elevation enthusiasm and efforts. Welcome to you both. Thanks very much looking forward to talking to you. This morning jennifer. I would love to get started by having both of you describe both your title and your role there at the garden. So nikola ripley. I'm the executive director at the gardens. I've been with the gardens for a long time about twenty years. I rose up through. The ranks came in as the director of horticulture Which i did for about ten years and then became Executive director ten years ago and my role at the gardens is to make sure that we have a good strategic direction. A work with the board of directors very closely. We have a fifteen men aboard. That is the visionary group for the cottons that helps us with fundraising and i work closely with them. To make sure that we keep in the right direction We have an updated strategy going forward on. I oversee the staff at the gardens and work closely. We have a wonderful team of people who enjoy working here and you know we. We work closely as a team gets me up in the morning is conservation work and to me. It's absolutely critical. Best botanical gardens play a role in connecting people with plants getting people to appreciate another stand plants and therefore to be interested in a rolling conserving. Them we focused particularly on the alpine environment. So as beautiful as the gardens are and i you know. I i know that most of the people who comes through the gardens enjoy them because they are beautiful place to be for me It goes much deeper than that. And the the role that we play in leading people to appreciate stand that want to conserve plants is what gets me up in the morning and into the office and nick. Let's move to you. Remind us of your title and your role there at the garden. And i want to ask you that. Same question of a distilled kind of mission statement or can northstar for what you do and why you do it has done for. My role is curator plant collections. And i have been with the gardens for. This is my eleventh year now like nikolai. Roseau rose to the ranks starting as an intern and then becoming a gardener horticulturist to the curator now my overall title is not just what i do. Every day as curator is creating the plans collections and growing. We wear many hats. nikola does to around the gardens. But what gets me up. In the morning to is to come in and and to see the plants blooming and learn something new every single day and to curate and maintain the best possible collection an alpine in rock garden plants in the united states. And if that may be the world so my vision is always striving to be one of the best alpine botanic gardens in the world. The overall idea that i have for my role is that we keep growing in our ever expanding species in the gardens and we aesthetically make it amazing for the public to enjoy every year. So i'd love to go back a little bit before we go forward and dig into the gardens themselves in their history and their future goals and get a little bit of history on both of you and a sense of where you were born in raised and the people and places in plants that grew you into people for whom these would be values and sources of great delight as well. And why don't we just go ahead and start with you nick. And then we'll move back to nikola. Tell us a little bit about your earliest influences. Oh well it begins sexually. Basically when i was born. I grew up a biodynamic farm in upstate. New york where i Was first exposed to vegetables and plants in waldorf education which really exposes kind of the curiosity of nature from early childhood. And from there. I really just kind of love being outside and after that wanted to do something with that when i graduated so then from there i went to school. Matt longwood gardens pennsylvania. And i went to school for their public horticulture professional gardener training program. So i went after high school in two thousand eight graduated in two thousand ten. It's a two year long Intensive program where we get hands on in classroom porticos training In possibly one of the best tanna gardens in the united states and then graduated in two thousand ten in march and came out here in may of two thousand ten where it was still snowing which was a huge surprise to me coming from the east coast and i had absolutely zero knowledge of alpine plants or rock art plants for that matter or west coast plans so it was a whole new world for me when i first moved here and i fell in love instantly. I always have been a big person. The mountains of big skier so this happened to be kind of paradise me a botanic garden in world class ski pound so i was instantly hooked great There's nothing like a may snowstorm in in colorado or june. Want so nikola. Let's move to you and same question. You know who were the the people and places in plants that grew you into a person for whom conservation would get you up in the morning and Maybe start with where you were born and raised and take us through your training that brought you to by ford. So i grew up in the north west of england in garden country relay but actually never was of net. Didn't spend a lot of time visiting botanic gardens growing up. My dad was a mountain climber. And so all of our holidays were spent out in the yorkshire dales and in the pennines of northern england. And i grew really to love mountaineering to love the plants that grew in the mountains. We spent a lot of time in scotland and the lake district climbing. And so got a loss of the british alpine's and that's how i got really interested in the environment and plants in particular. I went to the university of your contented.
