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.
