After building a greenhouse, young Innu family now has a little more food security

A young Innu family in Quebec have built a greenhouse.

To be more precise they are also doing agriculture on their land which is very exceptional in that region (and it works).

The goal is to teach their child about the food they eat – and become as self-sustaining as possible.

    I applaud their effort to be self-sustaining but they would be better off raising animals for food. There is a lot to be gained by returning to a traditional diet of mostly meats and fats. If they cannot get enough traditional animal foods through hunting, they can mimic the traditional diet by eating domesticated animals. Filling the stomach with vegetables will not deliver the same level of nutrition and robust health.

    i was donated a 90ftX30ft greenhouse from lambton college in sarnia ont… got a grant from CORDA with the intent to reconstruct it at the local elementary school and social services department for food bank use… elementary school is moving forward but, sad…. foodbank/social services people – after previously being supported by chief and council..- all of a sudden decide it would be to much work for them.. stupid ignorant comments of “what about the logistics? there’s too much we dont know.” community has wanted an opportunity and gabbing on about it for years, the opportunity of food resource, education and community they claimed would be great for the community…. but now…. to much work… such stupidity.. so much for doing their jobs in helping the community. anyway… i move on and found actual community members who will take a smaller greenhouse on their property and still use it to help the community.. so we have 4 locations to utilized this awesome donation…
