A new growing system on its way to Inuvik will mean fresh greens and herbs all year long, even through the town’s dark and frigid winters.

The Inuvik Community Greenhouse says it has received funding for a “new, year-round greenhouse” that will not only result in extra food but also boost local employment.
Executive director Ray Solotki told Cabin Radio the money comes from CanNor’s IDEANorth program. Over the next three years, the non-profit will receive $485,000 to build and maintain a hydroponic greenhouse.
