Excerpts:

“…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.”
