“This workshop helped me understand marketing and get my ducks in a row when it comes to strategy. Because our business is in pre-development, that means I will be so much more prepared to hit the ground running when land access/tenure falls into place and I’ll be able to focus more of my time on what matters most to me—growing food for our community.”

“Even though I’ve run a business for quite a bit of time… I feel much more confident both in what I’m putting together and in my ability to create a business plan.”
