Goal is to promote nutrition and a connection to the land
Officials with Abegweit First Nation in P.E.I. say a greenhouse in the community will increase food security, promote nutrition and help members learn more about living off the land.
Construction is underway now on the geothermal greenhouse in an open field near the community’s daycare centre.
Gerard Gould is Director of Health with Abegweit First Nation. He’s overseeing the greenhouse project.
“I think it’s just the connection to the land that we want to foster,” said Gould.
“Making sure that, not only is it by us and for us, but we’ll also get that knowledge and pass it down, generation to generation, to make sure that we are able to be self-sufficient, self-sustaining, within our own community, moving forward.”
