A greenhouse for Northern Ontario's climate

September 3, 2015

Using state-of-the art design and technology, an all-season greenhouse is now bearing fruit and vegetables, including cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes and peppers, in Espanola. Cambrian College's applied research division, Cambrian Innovates, along with its partners, Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and Greenhouses Canada, a partner of Helios Whitefish River First Nation, have collaborated to design, build and test this all-season greenhouse using energy-efficient techniques and materials.
