FarmWorks points to investment fund results
Patricia Brooks Arenberg, The Chronicle Herald, June 16, 2014
“…just some of the more than two dozen jobs FarmWorks loans have helped bring to Nova Scotia from May 2012 to December 2013.”
“Twenty full-time jobs and six part-time jobs were created as a direct result of the FarmWorks loans over and above the (21 full-time and 14 part-time) jobs held by the business owners themselves,” says a survey released Monday that was conducted on behalf of the co-operative.
“We’re pretty happy with the results to have created that many jobs in that short period of time,” Linda Best, co-chair of FarmWorks, said in an interview Monday.
“It gives a good indication of what can be done if we start investing in food production in Nova Scotia.”
