Roaring Fork Roots Fund

Roaring Fork Roots is a giving initiative created by Carbondale Tourism to support local growers and producers in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Mission:

Support local farming and food producers engaging in the Roaring Fork Valley’s food, culinary, and agritourism industry.

Vision:

Provide grants to local agricultural and food producers whose mission, values, and practices support the needs of the Roaring Fork Valley. These producers have a demonstrated need and plan for the implementation of the grant to enhance local food, agricultural and/or agritourism. The goal is to work with valley partners to keep our local farms in the valley and support our agricultural heritage.

Funding:

Funds for Roaring Fork Roots will come from a variety of sources including special events, curated offerings, sponsorship, and private donors.

100% of the Proceeds Benefit the Roaring Fork Roots Fund. A giving initiative created by Carbondale Tourism to support local growers and producers in the Roaring Fork Valley. For more information email tourism@carbondale.com
