Opaskwayak Cree nation has conducted a pilot project for growing vegetables using LED technology made by a South Korean Company that the community has partnered with. OCN members met with a South Korean Company visiting the area and they introduced the community to LED technologies for growing vegetables. One of the big advantages of this technology is that it can grow a head of lettuce every 28 days.

 

Chief Christian Sinclair believes that with impacts of climate change affecting the growth of foods it is essential that they explore new ways of growing food. Sinclair and Glen Ross will be going on a trade mission to South Korea to meet with the company that they partnered with and to look at how they can take this technology to the next level.

 

These foods being grown are currently being given to community members free of charge to help them change their diets. The next step is to try to sell these foods to store fronts on a larger scale.
