MOSCA The Valley Roots Food Hub is co-hosting two workshops in April for beginning and expanding farmers and ranchers in partnership with the Colorado Tourism Office, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union and Guidestone Colorado. The free-of-charge workshops will take place at the Valley Roots Food Hub in Mosca from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 8th and 9th with lunch included.
