Associated Social Enterprises

Bioregional North America has previously launched the Ottawa-based Harvest Noir sustainability and local food festival, and is currently in the process of launching additional social enterprises, including the Aboriginal Social Business Incubator and the Wrightville Maker Collective. The Bioregional British charity has, since it was founded in 1994, established a number of associated enterprises to develop or continue the charitable mission and in which the charity sometimes retains an interest.
