Sowing Seeds of Hope
PROJECT STATUS: INSTALLED NOVEMBER 2017; FIRST HARVESTED IN DECEMBER 2017
In December 2015, the Churchill Northern Studies Centre (CNSC) wanted to explore the idea of growing food locally after the town of Churchill was completely disconnected from the south due to the extreme flooding of their railway line. The town’s inaccessibility caused the price of food to double overnight and forced the community to rely on expensive and inconsistent food shipments by air.
Through their partnership with the Growcer, they have been able to create change and hope in their town by reducing food prices and securing the local food supply. Today, The Growcer system is the only consistent source of local food in Churchill. The system provides fresh, minimally packaged, and superior quality produce to Churchill residents.
