CAN (NS): Province announces new funding for greenhouse in New Glasgow

The provincial government announced new funding for a greenhouse in New Glasgow that will support adults with intellectual disabilities.

The government is investing $1.4 million dollars into Summer Street Industries’ agricultural project to build a new, three-bay, all-season, fully accessible greenhouse. It will provide hands-on gardening skills, on-site programming, and space for local businesses to lease and grow food.

Minister of Agriculture Greg Morrow said the investment would help Nova Scotia meet its goal of having 20 percent of people’s food consumption come from local food by 2030.

“We’re proud to support this greenhouse at Summer Street Industries. It’s another step to help with our mandate to increase Nova Scotians’ consumption of locally grown or produced food,” said Morrow.
