Nunavut Greenhouse

The Nunavut Greenhouse is powered by wind and solar energy and may be the answer to food insecurity in remote areas – and space. Currently, Canadian scientists are using this greenhouse in Gjoa Haven, Nunavut, to see whether this would be feasible. The project is called Naurvik, which translates to “growing place” in Inuinnaqtun, and is made of two shipping containers, powered by both wind and solar energy. While the Canadian Space Agency is using it to develop a curriculum for space-related food research, the greenhouse is also fighting food insecurity – a serious issue for Northern communities.
