We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelli Rohrig and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kelli, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
Part of how we started Limbs for Liberty was my relationship with my emigrant family. My mother’s family fled Europe during WW2. Some of the family had help from random Belgians who enabled them to leave Europe and the war. When the war in Ukraine broke out, I decided this was my time to pay back those who helped my family. I originally was bringing medical supplies to Ukraine with an organization called Backroads Foundation. We started a new nonprofit called Limbs for Liberty and we are helping source and supply prosthetics and hard to obtain orthopedic supplies for Ukrainians injured during the war.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Our landscaping business is fully organic and natural. I believe what sets us apart is our relationship with our employees. We provide classes so our employees understand why we use the products we use, why we recycle, interactions with nature along with other classes like suicide prevention.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The Gore Range! If I had a friend in town, I’d take them for a ski tour in the Gore Range followed by tacos at Rocky Taco and beers at Vail Brewing Company in Eagle Vail. We could easily spend 5 days in the Gore followed by eating at low key local restaurants post ski. I’d finish our week with a ski from Vail Mountain to Minturn and a visit to the iconic Saloon for margs.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
