This project will create meaningful employment for young people in the community, increase community involvement and build positive relationships in the community, through learning to grow food.
Community members will build a chicken coop and gain the knowledge to raise 50 chickens for both meat and eggs, which will be shared with elders, young families and women at the Crisis Centre.
Expand the community traditional foods processing center to increase the use of the facility, and ensure that processing is safe by separating fish from other meats.
Building a greater understanding of growing food and sharing of traditional ways of living off the land, to create meaningful employment, valuable community experiences and strengthened relationships.
Promote healthier living by gardening, fishing and chicken harvesting to offset the high cost of food, and help build community relationships.
The youth will gain skills through ice-fishing, while aiming to reduce chronic diseases such as diabetes, build social ties and promoting holistic values for mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual improvement.
Contribute to safe and sustainable food systems by expanding localized bee keeping operations and organic honey production in 6 new communities, and continuing to support operations in our other 6 communities.
Provide a secure location for community members to dispose of their fish waste outside of the main living area, use the compost to reduce cost of importing soil, and improve the quality of the soil overall.

Support community members to get training, access the commercial fish market and share fish in the community, to create jobs and lower food costs.
Build greenhouse that will withstand seasonal growing and harvesting, while using the resources of the greenhouse for science research and healthy foods.
Attain sustainable food security by focusing on fishing and trapping, as well as giving youth the knowledge and capacity to harvest wild animals safely and sustainably.
Through gardens and food projects, families are healing, intergenerational teaching is happening, people are experiencing nature and the pride of food production.
