Free Press: Fresh, affordable food brings hope to the north

October 7, 2015 — 

As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:

Food security in the north: Garden Hill First Nation is improving access to food at reasonable prices thanks to a thriving farm with local produce, and a provincial subsidy to help keep the cost of some goods down. Community members have been increasing the ways they grow food, including using a greenhouse, and Meechim Farm has been working with University of Manitoba scientists to figure out how to get food to grow in the rocky terrain and heavy clay soil.
