Fort Nelson First Nation Agricultural Feasibility Assessment
Upland Agricultural Consulting is working with Fort Nelson First Nation and Tu Deh Kah Geothermal to explore commercial agricultural endeavours available to the community. The project is examining if, and how, a community-led geothermal project could contribute to future agricultural greenhouse and fields production scenarios. The project involves facilitating a Project Steering Committee, liaising with the TDK Board, and developing business plans for several production scenarios. Community-based food security workshops (including canning, salves, and foraging) are also a part of the scope of this project.
The project is being funded by the Federal Indigenous Agriculture Food Security Initiative (IAFSI) through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
