Around the Ranch
The team at ACES at Rock Bottom Ranch has been working extra hard during the last few weeks to get the Ranch ready for summer. There are a few large projects in the works that will improve guest experience as well as efficiency for our agricultural production.
Join representative from ACES, the City of Aspen, and Pitkin County to explore local food production in the Aspen area! The tour will visit the winning edible gardens that were selected in an open competition for gardeners who plant at least 25% of their landscaping with vegetables, herbs, and other edible plants. We will discuss planting strategies and infrastructure, different cultivars, successes and failures, and more.
Both the edible garden competition and the culminating tour represent a collaborative effort to demonstrate how bountiful food gardens can be grown in high altitude alpine climates and to encourage local food production. Join us to explore Aspen area gardens and get inspired about local food production.
Please RSVP below to join the tour.
Gardeners - visit AspenAreaGardenTour.com to enter your garden in the competition by July 31st.
