PV Grows takes investments from community members, (individuals and institutions), and uses them to make flexible loans to Farm and Food enterprises that strengthen our regional food system.
“The FCCDC made it easy for us to invest in the traditional small businesses that are the backbone of our community, and to do it with the confidence that the FCCDC is there to help those companies succeed.,“ said RVI Manager Paul Silva.
PV Grows Fund Coordinator Rebecca Busansky said, “We are so pleased to be working with RVI members to strengthen our farms and local food system. We look forward to continuing the relationship! ”
