CAN (ON): Wikwemikong greenhouse becomes reality with national contest

By being awarded $50,000 in a national contest, local officials will be able to build a greenhouse on the Wikwemikong Territory.

The projected 1,400-square foot greenhouse, which will be built at the Wikwemikong High School, will also allow students at the school to enroll in a handful of new courses that are expected to be offered, beginning next September.

And the hope is the greenhouse will also provide a community-led sustainable food source.

The announcement that Wikwemikong would be getting $50,000 to build a greenhouse through the Aviva Community Fund contest was made at an assembly at the high school on Tuesday.
