Here's an inspiring story of work, values & hope in action, and one that raises the spirit...

Six young people from inner-city Halifax, Nova Scotia pitch their organic salad dressing business to the five Dragons (entrepreneurs) on this CBC TV show. The kids are looking for a $10,000 investment to help them grow their business.

The Back-Story: 40 "at-risk" young people now grow organic herbs/plants, on previously vacant & abandoned land they've reclaimed, and turn the the plants into salad dressing.

Watch it at:

Note: The video lasts 8:00 minutes. There is also 1 min of commercials before it starts, but the video is worth waiting for...

(For those in the U.S., this TV program is the forerunner of "Shark Tank" - a show in which aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to entrepreneurial investors.)

Enjoy!
Eric
