Are you a food producer with a great idea t grow your business? Come to the meeting at Annapolis Royal fire hall on Feb. 20.

Local residents will have the opportunity to get to know their local food producers through a unique FarmWorks Investment Co-operative Limited event scheduled for February 20 in Annapolis Royal.

The FarmWorks Gentle Dragons event offers the opportunity to watch live as local food producers pitch their business ideas to a panel of “Gentle Dragons.” The panel is made up of representatives from agriculture and business development, and the audience. Ask questions, make suggestions, and become involved in your community.

Events are being held across the province, with a session planned in Annapolis Royal on February 20 at 7 p.m. at the Annapolis Royal Fire Hall.

Each presenter will have five minutes and, if desired, up to 10 slides to tell their stories, followed by Q&A and comments from the Gentle Dragons and the audience. Presenters are encouraged to promote their businesses with literature, samples and conversation.
