Sagkeeng First Nation completes greenhouse at high school

Sagkeeng First Nation has completed construction on its new solar-powered greenhouse at the Sagkeeng Anicinabe High School. The project was started after youth in the community expressed interest in creating a community garden and took almost two years to complete. The greenhouse will provide learning opportunities, work experience, and food to the community. Sagkeeng Anicinabe expects to incorporate the greenhouse into its high school curriculum, and students from the school had the opportunity to choose the produce that the greenhouse will grow. Project manager Sara Fontaine said she appreciates the students’ help. “We’ve been talking about different things we can do like canning, planting berries around the community,” said Fontaine.
