They may be young, but a brother and sister duo from Waterford have started a thriving business through Norfolk’s Student Start-Up Program.
Avery and Koehen aged 14 and 12 started a veggie stand called KVG’s Gardens For Life.
They are located at 710 Old Highway 24 and serve a broad variety veggies and fruit.
Avery says Norfolk’s Economic Development Analyst Jerry Sucharyna inspired him to start his business after a visit to his school last year.
He said the program helped launch his business.
Koehen says the best part of KVG’s Gardens For Life — is making money.
The Student Start-Up Program sees young people from grade 6 to 12 make a pitch to the county for a summer business, and if approved they get $200 to go towards their idea.
