The team behind Positive Vibe Café cooks toward a better tomorrow in more ways than one. Not only does the organization train individuals with disabilities for jobs in the food-service industry, but it also helps to clean up customers' lifestyles with healthy, flavorful fare. The crew—which includes professional chefs, volunteers, and trainees—steams and grills local, organic produce and meats, which go on to star in gourmet baguette sandwiches, nutritious salads, and refined dinner entrees of buffalo meatloaf and balsamic-kissed grilled salmon, served after 5 p.m or full-service catering.
Formerly the Get Lost MD Foundation, the nonprofit Positive Vibe Foundation preserves Get Lost's mission to help those with developmental and physical disabilities achieve the satisfaction of gainful employment. Helmed by Garth and Max Larcen, who shared a vision to operate a full-service restaurant that would provide both education and employment opportunities for its graduates, the foundation has patient and knowledgeable instructors who have trained more than 700 students in the skills of basic food service, cleaning, food safety, and commercial dishwashing. The instructors further each graduate's employability through lessons on communication in the workplace, interviewing, and proper job-searching techniques.
The Mosquito Authority responds to summer scourges of biting pests with its kid- and pet-friendly mosquito spray systems. Barrier spray service eliminates mosquitoes with an EPA-approved solution—specialized enough to not repel beneficial bees or butterflies—that technicians apply to trees, shrubs, and foliage around yards, guarding against pests for three weeks.
Alternatively, unobtrusive auto-mist systems can be installed in yards to periodically release anti-bug mist at a frequency customers can adjust via remote control.
To create Peak Experiences, the dedicated staff sets more than 125 top-rope routes, lead climbs, and bouldering problems for climbers of all skill levels. Five levels of classes and safety training spanning basic problems such as climbing a bunk bed to lead climbing a 50-foot wall prepare climbers to conquer any of these problems, and the gym also outfits its members with an onsite gear shop that stocks harnesses, footwear, and belay devices such as grigris or ATCs. Kids can also learn climbing skills during youth programs that invite children aged 5–18 and young rocks aged 3,000,000–4,500,000 to climb together with camps, teams, and trips.
