The demand is high for local food in the Roaring Fork Valley, but there’s not enough available. Results from a six-month study show a need to increase local food production through supporting new and beginning farmers. Gwen Garcelon heads the Roaring Fork Food Policy Council, which initiated the analysis. She spoke with Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen.
