Opportunities for Business Startups Available in Wardensville


"Paul Yandura and Donald Hitchcock, owners of the Lost River Trading Post, came up with the idea to engage partners in a local farmers market-type vegetable stand.

The students are providing the labor to grow vegetables. The town of Wardensville is providing the space to grow the vegetables. The Lost River Trading Post is providing the space to sell the vegetables and Yandura and Hitchcock are providing the marketing. Jill Crossland, teacher at EHHS and FFA advisor is providing the supervision. 

'The idea is to teach the students about entrepreneurship,' Yandura said. 'We can help them learn about starting and sustaining their own business.'"
