Yellowknife's Co-op grocery store says its hydroponic greenhouse is a success, several months after being installed.
The greenhouse, designed to allow year-round, local production of fresh produce, has been operational since March.
Jeff Kincaid, the Co-op's business development manager, said the resulting produce is "a hit" with customers.
Ottawa-based Growcer, the manufacturer, makes its greenhouses out of converted seacans. Growcer says the units are designed to withstand northern conditions down to -52C.
"There is no seasonal prep for us. It operates the same, day in, day out, every day of the year for us," said Kincaid.
