Form the folks that bring you the Berlin Local Works Farmer’s Market, WREN 921 continues as a Rural Entrepreneurial Network in Berlin, to be a collaborative non-profit working to create the best possible environments for small business owners.
Laura Jamison of WREN who organizes the Local Works Berlin Farmers said this is a great fit for Berlin to continue to provide services and education to Market vendors and other small businesses through membership, networking, collaboration and education.  
"What's exciting to me and the rest of us is that this gives WREN a space for small businesses and entrepreneurs to grow individually," said Jamison.
