Dagoba Organic Chocolate is one of the most nationally well-known companies based in Ashland (1105 Benson Way on the south end of town off Crowson Road). The company was founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 2001 by Frederick Schilling, who changed the chocolate industry by creating delicious organic chocolate that was sustainably sourced and packaged.
The company moved to the Rogue Valley in 2003 and has been at its present location since 2004. Dagoba Chocolate was the first company to introduce delightful combinations of essential oils, fruits, nuts and herbs into chocolate.

Ashland Outdoor Store Celebrating Twenty Years

When Steve Rowe moved to Ashland in 1992, he had all kinds of experience in the business world. He had been coming to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival for many years, and after cashing out of his job in the corporate world in Seattle, he toyed around with ideas to start a new business.
"I had no previous experience in retail, but I knew what it took to start a business from the ground up," Steve said. "I am an avid fly fisherman and love being in the outdoors, so I chose an outdoor specialty store because it was about being in the outdoors. It is a way to connect both to people and the outside."

Healing Alternatives at Inner Synergy

 

When it comes to yoga, Keira Harrison of Inner Synergy (545 Lit Way), has had a lifetime of experience.
"From the moment I could walk, I was practicing yoga with my mom," Keira said. "When I was eight, I became seriously dedicated and worked my way through a yoga encyclopedia for children. I took my first classes when I was in high school, continued in college, and really deepened my home practice when I was in my early 20s and becoming a new mom."
In the fall of 2004, Keira returned to classes with Hanneli Francis and fell in love with the Anusara style of yoga.
