Kevin Healy

The native Colorado Chokecherry Tree offers itself with no pretension and it doesn't change its self to taste better to any animal (human or otherwise). Although it is proud and stubborn in that way, it is still one of the most generous plants, offering pounds of food in the form of it's juicy ovaries per tree.. every year. When prepared into jam or wine, it reveals a deep and complex flavor that is globally unmatched precisely because it is indigenous to our Rocky Mountain environment. In that way, it is far more interesting and vital to our culture than its cultivated and glossy store-bought counterpart; these factory cherries are larger than life, and manufactured only for undiscerning mass consumption. In that sense, the Chokecherry Tree is worthy of great respect.  I am endlessly interested in our native artistic fruits, and all of the things that make them rich, significant, outstanding and unique. I am a writer for the Pueblo P.U.L.P as well as a "Cool Hunter" for Colorado Creates and I am hungry for new experiences. If you believe your fruits are ripe for the picking, email me at monstarpromotions@gmail.com.
