The first video in CHC's Labour Awareness Campaign features a Nova Scotia Farm!
Canadian Horticultural Council - Conseil canadien de l'horticulture Josh and Anthony work together at TapRoot Farms in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. Josh owns the farm and Anthony is an international worker from Jamaica who comes up during the growing season to help out. The respect and admiration they have for one another is heartwarming.
