The Plumas Business and Career Network is excited to announce free technical assistance training for Plumas County entrepreneurs and small businesses. This training is being offered through four Economic Gardening workshops that are designed to meet the expressed needs of Plumas businesses.
According to Jan Prichard, business service representative at the Business and Career Network in Quincy, “Economic Gardening is the concept of growing businesses within the local community rather than looking to relocate an existing company. Small, local companies are the source of new jobs and wealth, and communities should work to create nurturing environments for these companies.”
