Goal is to promote nutrition and a connection to the land

Officials with Abegweit First Nation in P.E.I. say a greenhouse in the community will increase food security, promote nutrition and help members learn more about living off the land.

Construction is underway now on the geothermal greenhouse in an open field near the community’s daycare centre.

Gerard Gould is Director of Health with Abegweit First Nation. He’s overseeing the greenhouse project.

“I think it’s just the connection to the land that we want to foster,” said Gould.
