Her passion for local food meant she wanted to use her skills to help support and promote Nova Scotian agriculture and working for the Truro Farmers’ Market has meant a fuller opportunity to do just that. She sees social media as a valuable tool for farmers. markets, and all local entrepreneurs to connect with people they may not be able to otherwise.
