The Makers Valley Farm Makers Collective | Eco-Business

This work will involve connecting and advising 3 social enterprises from Makers Valley : a farmer, an eco-business and a collective of creatives. We will guide and support them with their strategic and implementational challenges. By adding our advisory support through our Micro-business Accelerator progam to their efforts, we aim to further increase the impact of their work.
