Why study opportunities to use the Strathlorne Forest Nursery?
The Department of Natural Resources, in partnership with Perennia Food and Agriculture, the Department of Agriculture, Municipality of the County of Inverness, and The Cape Breton Partnership, has hired Group ATN Consulting Inc. (GATN) and Morton Horticultural Associates (MHA) to examine opportunities to increase use of the Strathlorne Forest Nursery site in support of community and regional economic development.
Currently, the facility has excess production capacity and the research team wants to know your views on the opportunities to effectively leverage this capacity.
As part of the research, GATN and MHA are seeking community input in a process that included a well-attended public meeting (held on June 21st) and an online survey.
The survey is offered to anyone who could not attend the public meeting, as well as for those who did attend but would like another opportunity to contribute their thoughts.
