NOTL Today promoting area businesses

To help area businesses weather the COVID-19 pandemic, Niagara-on-the-Lake’s popular Facebook group NOTL Today is allowing companies to post free advertisements.

“My message is, ‘How can we as a community help?’ Knowing our farmworkers won’t be arriving must be devastating,” said NOTL Today administrator  Julia Buxton-Cox.

“I want to talk to local farmers about arranging community volunteers. We realize pruning fruit trees requires experience and knowledge and they just can’t train people and supervise them in such a short time,” she said. “I just want to help support the local business owners, workers, their families and the supply chain.”

People need experience to operate farm machinery and equipment, “but is there anything we as a community can do to help?”
