Colorado Mountain College, which offers a bachelor’s degree in sustainability studies, is taking sustainability to the community by hosting the Farm to Fork Fair, a free barbecue featuring local food, at its Aspen campus. Attendees can expect discussions and delicious foods at this afternoon event, which is open to the public from 1 to 5 p.m. on June 15.
