“Gentle Dragons”

FarmWorks Ninth Offer is now open for investment. Everyone is invited to attend “Gentle Dragons” sessions to hear from farmers and food producers and to learn how investors in FarmWorks are supporting many food related businesses across Nova Scotia. These enjoyable and informative events are taking place in communities across the Province. FarmWorks clients and potential clients and anyone with a food-related business is invited to describe their businesses and their plans, and “Dragons” ask questions and make “Gentle” suggestions. The sessions increase awareness of the many benefits of producing foods and beverages right here in Nova Scotia, FarmWorks Directors describe how Shareholder investments contribute to the success of businesses, and the audience gets to sample great products and talk with the providers. Information about sessions will be updated here as confirmed and please let us know if you have suggestions for other locations. Everyone who wishes to present is asked to contact Linda Best, or send the attached form to lbest@ns.sympatico.ca if you’re interested in applying for a loan https://farmworks.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Gentle-Dragons-Application-1.pdf
