Remote communities in Canada, and for that matter around the world, have far too long relied on extensive supply chains, and unsustainable methods of energy. Growing North, challenges this existing mentality, through the construction of off grid food production facilities in Canada's Arctic. This allows remote communities to produce massive amounts of food on location, reduce the overall cost, reduce dependency on supply chains, and with incorporated educational programming help increase local graduation rates. Join us to discuss incorporating Green Technology, and the future of expansion!
