Growing Up North
The goal of this project is to set up northern Manitobans with a free and easy to use backyard greenhouse that will help extend the growing season and allow them to produce more food for themselves. This is a two year project and in this first smaller pilot year I want to test out three different designs in one northern community to see which structure works best. The one that works best will be adjusted if necessary and used in the second year. The first year will also involve a soil mix testing project to get the right growing blend and the creation of an instructional manual. Both of these projects will be applied to the second yaer of the project which will be a larger version with more people being paired with greenhouses.
