Greenhouse for Community in Nunavut
JUNE 20, 2017
Adam Malcolm is a teacher in Qikiqtarjuaq, NU. He has started a greenhouse initiative so that his students can grow their own vegetables and fruits as costs in this area are very high. A bag of grapes can go for $28.19 per kg. Students are given the opportunity to gain skills to grow fruits and vegetables, and hoping to expand the project for the entire community. Days of continuous sunlight in the summer mean long stretches of perpetual darkness in the winter, which means expensive investments in lights, heating systems and insulation for anyone who wants to grow year-round. Funds will go towards lamps, solar panels, and many more items to make the greenhouse a success. This good deed was nominated by Kim Clarkson of our Kitchener branch.
