Greenhouse

Our greenhouse structure, made mainly out of transparent material keeps our plants regulated in a climatic condition allowing them to continually grow all year round. Our greenhouse currently spans 12,000 square feet which allows us to grow more than 30 types of vegetables or fruits in our greenhouse.

Once the greenhouse reaches full functionality, the majority of produce will be available for purchase to the public, while some will be used for fresh cafe menu ingredients.

In conjunction with the Six Nations Farmers Association, we are working to prepare the farmland behind the Greenhouse for the 2019 planting season.  Our plans are to include traditional foods such as strawberries, corn, beans and squash.
