ADVANCED 4SEASONS FRESH FOOD ORGANIC GREENS & INDIGENOUS MEDICINES INDOOR AGRICULTURE
EMPOWERING FIRST NATIONS AND INUIT COMMUNITIES OF CANADA TO BECOMING WORLD LEADERS IN ORGANIC FRESH FOOD PRODUCTION
PURVEYORS of 4SEASONS FRESH FOOD ORGANIC GREENS & INDIGENOUS MEDICINE WORLDWIDE

L’organisation First Nation Growers est fière d’être le chef d’équipe d’une équipe de spécialistes en planification de projets consultatifs avant-gardiste, expérimentée et créative. Chaque personne impliquée a ajouté de la valeur à nos leaders de l’industrie «nouvelle génération». Nous assurons des succès durables à long terme, financièrement viable, de marchés agricoles des jardins communautaires indigènes.

La FNG garantit que chaque membre de notre comité consultatif de projet est un véritable «ami des Anishinaabe» ; notre promesse envers chaque communauté autochtone avec laquelle nous travaillons, y compris les membres de l’organisation et les conseillers. En tant qu’organisation autochtone à part entière, FNG comprend honorablement que nous ne sommes que des gardiens de la terre pour que bemaadizijig (toutes les personnes vivantes) suivent la trace anishinaabemaadziwen (Anishinaabe).

Notre mission consiste à offrir des services de soutien aux Premières Nation et aux Inuits avant et après les soins par le biais d’une agriculture communautaire créative intérieure. Nous enrichirons la vie nutritionnelle des communautés Autochtones en produisant des produits riches en nutriments, frais et naturels.

Notre vision est de renforcer les possibilités de libérer les communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits du Canada en créant un système de jardin quatre saisons, produisant des fruits et légumes frais naturels ainsi que des herbes et des remèdes traditionnels. Nos installations de culture intérieure à climat froid amélioreront la santé, la nutrition et le bien-être. Cette promotion agricole créative tout au long de l’année améliorera le développement social des communautés Autochtones au sein de chaque communauté, quel que soit le site géographique.

Notre objectif est de construire un système quatre saisons pour cultiver des produits frais et naturel, sans pesticides ni produits chimiques, à des prix que toutes les familles peuvent se permettre pour les sept prochaine générations. Cela créera en retour des possibilités d’emplois autochtones à long terme et durable, ainsi que des nouveaux revenus provenant des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits elles-mêmes.

Notre but partagé est de créer des possibilités d’emplois Autochtones durables à long terme, tout en créant de nouveaux revenus au sein des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits elles-mêmes. Nous aiderons chaque population autochtone à atteindre cet objectif grâce à notre producteur d’artisanat «Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture» qui vise des succès continus et autonomes en matière d’agriculture maraîchère et qui produira des produits biologique frais tout au long de l’année.

FNG utilise également des solutions d’énergie «nouvelle génération» permettant à chaque installation de fonctionner comme une installation «nette positive» autonome, à la fois en termes de consommation d’énergie qu`en gains de revenus nets. Nous rencontrons alors le but Autochtone le plus élevé; créer une économie circulaire autosuffisante au sein de chaque collectivité des Premières Nation et / ou des collectivités Inuits avec laquelle nous travaillons, peu importe la l`emplacement géographique.

Notre objectif est de permettre aux collectivités des Premières Nation et des Inuits de devenir des chefs de file mondiaux dans l’approche de «l’agriculture 4Seasons avancée». Notre production de légumes verts de jardin, sans produits chimiques et pesticides, exempts dans les régions froides, sera fournie et distribuée par la création de carrefours d’aliments frais dans des territoires Autochtones stratégiquement situés au Canada. Ce nouveau modèle de croissance des aliments servira directement les membres de la communauté elle-même tout en étant capable de desservir d’autres communautés de la région. Nous nous attaquerons à la demande et aux pénuries alimentaires de haute qualité tout en favorisant l’amélioration personnelle et le bien-être grâce à des flux nutritionnels sains tout au long de l’année.

Ce système est composé d`une méthodologie de culture de produits d’intérieur distincte, avec une croissance automatisée intégrée, des alertes d’ingénierie surveillées et des informations sur la croissance historique pour chaque emplacement de nos sites « Garden Farm Foods Community Foods ». Le système est un climat intérieur pré-tarifé, personnalisé, tout au long de l’année.

Les systèmes de jardinage d`aliments frais individuels sont conçus sur mesure pour répondre aux besoins individuels des Premières Nation et des communautés Inuits en matière de nutrition. Ils permettent des produits frais de qualité, tout au long de l’année grâce à une culture naturelle de légumes frais et d’autres aliments crus, dans les fermes communautaires individuelles.

« Fresh Foods Garden Farms » issue des collectivités individuelles des Premières Nation et des Inuits en cultivant à l’intérieur des légumes frais, fruits, herbes et remèdes traditionnels indigènes, et ce 12 mois par année. FNG fournit un soutien continu 24 heures sur 24, 7 jours sur 7, 365 jours par année, grâce à ses experts et leurs savoir-faire en automatisation et en culture hydroponique rotative de produits frais.

Nous avons l’intention d’offrir une formation communautaire, individuelle avec installation de climatiseurs fiables, disponible à l’année, ainsi que des systèmes commerciaux « Fresh Foods Garden Farms », 365 jours par année. Ce système répondra aux besoins en produits frais de chaque communauté et / ou incluant plusieurs autres communautés de la région grâce à un système de ferme-jardin commercial viable et durable.

Notre technologie de suivi de la croissance et d’enregistrement de l’historique de la croissance est entièrement automatisée pour assurer une production biologique, naturelle et fraîche de légumes verts, riches en nutriments, y compris des rendements maximaux tout au long de l’année.

Nous sommes fiers du succès continus de chaque projet communautaire de « Fresh Food Garden Farms » en offrant une assistance supplémentaire 24 heures sur 24, 7 jours sur 7 pour chaque emplacement et son personnel. FNG offre une formation avancée en matière de technique, d’installation, d’exploitation et d’installation avant l’ouverture. Cet appui comprend des séminaires d’ateliers sur l’éducation à la croissance ainsi qu’une aide en ligne pour assurer le succès de chaque projet communautaire. Cette aide est une opportunité pour la communauté indigène qui se fait attendre depuis longtemps.

Chaque système de ferme-jardin « Fresh Foods » est spécialement conçu pour répondre aux besoins de consommation annuels des communautés individuelles des Premières Nation et des Inuits, en fonction de la population et de leurs besoins et préoccupations nutritionnels spécifiques. Ce système peut également inclure d’autres communautés et résidents des environs et fournir des ressources nutritionnelles nécessaires et supplémentaires à leurs membres et à leurs enfants, au sein de leurs communautés, tout au long de l’année.

 

Notre objectif commun des producteurs des Premières Nation est de créer des emplois et des débouchés économiques durables à long terme tout en créant de nouveaux revenus au sein des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits entre eux, en aidant chaque cultivateur autosuffisant, avec notre économie circulaire.

 

Ils le font en produisant des aliments biologiques et des produits indigènes chimiques sans pesticides, naturel, à l’année, tout en utilisant des solutions énergétiques renouvelables qui aident à détourner les déchets tout en fournissant des flux nutritifs améliorés, grâce à des emplois positifs et économiques. Créant ainsi des opportunités incroyables au sein de la communauté elle-même.

 

« Écoutez et veillez au bien-être de tous les peuples » et ayez toujours en vue non seulement le passé et le présent mais aussi celui des Sept Générations à suivre.

« Anishinaabemaadziwen »

FNG a mis au point un modèle d’affaires unique dans lequel la société aidera et facilitera l’obtention d’une licence de producteur (SC) de Santé Canada (producteur agréé) en collaboration avec l’exploitation de son installation communautaire.

 

Par conséquent, FNG deviendra un important partenaire de coentreprise avec de nombreuses installations de culture de cannabis Autochtones au Canada.

 

FNG supervisera les opérations, fournira une formation continue à l’industrie, offrira de la formation et participera au développement de chaque installation de culture. Ce style de gestion permettra à FNG de réglementer chaque installation pour s’assurer qu’elles respectent les normes opérationnelles et les protocoles approuvés de Santé Canada et mettent en œuvre notre propre système d’agriculture « 4Seasons 420 » de l’industrie des producteurs d’aliments FNG pour assurer le succès des installations.

 

Au bout du compte, First Nation Growers a l’intention de former un partenariat avec plus de 100 producteurs d’artisanat Autochtones et urbains dans l’ensemble du Canada au cours des sept prochaines années.

Les amateurs de cannabis ont été en mission depuis des décennies, ils peuvent même dire qu’ils ont collectivement atteint le sommet de la montagne. Le voyage a été long tandis que beaucoup attendent maintenant les fruits des efforts légaux collectifs à travers le monde entier. Les produits médicinaux indigènes et leurs avantages pour la santé ont été présent depuis toujours. Chez FNG, nous avons une division unique de producteurs de canne à sucre LP spécialement conçue pour aider les communautés Autochtones à créer leur économie circulaire communautaire à l’intérieur de la prochaine industrie mondiale de plusieurs milliards de dollars. C’est une industrie dont les peuples Autochtones du monde entier on fait partie depuis le début des temps, où les communautés Autochtones et leurs dirigeants ont également le droit inhérent de contrôler leur destin et le droit de contrôler leurs produits médicinaux.FNG a établi un partenariat avec un producteur de cannabis autorisé à des fins médicales de Santé Canada (demandeur à un stade avancé).   Nous prévoyons adopter notre modèle d’entreprise de cannabis FNG à l’échelle du pays pour garantir que les communautés Autochtones et les installations de cannabis indigènes à des fins médicales sont au premier rang du processus d’approbation des demandes de Santé Canada et que les communautés autochtones joueront un rôle actif dans l’industrie, au sein des communautés autochtones elles-mêmes. Et pourquoi pas?   Notre installation «artisanale» créera plus de 50 postes à temps plein à l’année dans la communauté. Ces emplois comprendront des salaires de type «ville» supérieurs à la moyenne et des avantages pour la famille afin d’assurer la viabilité économique des familles et des résidents des Premières Nation.  Nous encouragerons le renforcement des capacités qui comprend la formation et l’éducation continues des employés et d’autres avantages qui permettent aux membres, résidents et peuples Autochtones de gagner un salaire décent dans leur communauté et dans l’industrie actuelle du cannabis à des fins médicales. Cette installation respectera et appliquera strictement les lignes directrices, les critères et les mises en œuvre strictes de sécurité de Santé Canada, en mettant l’accent sur la production de cannabis médicinal médical.  Un élément essentiel du modèle d’affaires des Premières Nation consiste à éradiquer la consommation abusive d’opiacés, de méthadone, de fentanyl et d’autres médicaments d’ordonnance courants, y compris les produits chimiques domestiques nocifs qui ont créé une crise grave dans beaucoup trop de communautés Autochtones. Nous devons éradiquer ces médicaments dans toutes les communautés. Nous sommes heureux d’apporter notre soutien total à votre vision pour promouvoir les nouvelles opportunités de développement économique trouvées ou améliorées, tout en créant de nouvelles opportunités d’emploi, de formation et d’éducation pour l’emploi des Premières Nation et des gains économiques au sein de leurs communautés.  Nos efforts consistent à améliorer le bien-être holistique de soi, grâce à des outils innovants et technologiquement avancés. Nous avons pour but d`améliorer la production des flux nutritionnels communautaires en utilisant des médecines sacrées grâce à des produits agricoles sophistiqués et aliments naturels. Ce système crée des opportunités économiques et des emplois pour les membres de la communauté en réaffirmant les droits autochtones inhérents à l’usage personnel des médecines traditionnelles et / ou sacrées qui incluent les produits de la marijuana à la fois médicinaux et récréatifs, y compris les dérivés holistiques améliorés. La santé et le bien-être de soi-même se font attendre depuis longtemps. Les principales raisons de soutenir l’entreprise sont l’approbation écrasante des aliments frais, de l’eau et de l’énergie, pour n’en citer que quelques-uns des avantages qu’un établissement apportera à une collectivité sous la forme de nouvelles possibilités d’emploi et de retombées économiques. Notre système avancé de l’agriculture de la GNP 420 contribue à l’amélioration de la vie et des moyens de subsistance de tous les peuples et de Mère Nature.  Nous aurons besoin d’employés du secteur de la culture pure, y compris à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur du développement des affaires communautaires, du transport et de la dotation en personnel de sécurité 24/365 des installations pour respecter les lignes directrices fédérales sur les licences de production. En outre, nous avons besoin de personnel de soutien supplémentaire, y compris l’entretien et l’équipe de terrain. Un salaire décent provenant de votre communauté serait un rêve devenu réalité comme pour beaucoup; notre concept de «salaire minimum vital» n’est pas le même que le salaire minimum.  Le salaire décent établit un test plus élevé – un salaire décent reflète ce que les salariés d’une famille doivent rapporter à la maison en fonction des coûts réels de la vie dans une communauté spécifique. Le concept du «salaire vital» est un appel lancé aux employeurs des secteurs privé et public pour qu’ils versent des salaires suffisants pour fournir les bases aux familles avec enfants.  Le poste d’entrée de gamme le plus élémentaire au sein de l’installation d’Agriculture avancée 4Seasons de FNG ne sera pas inférieur à 19,75 $ l’heure. Basé sur une semaine de travail de 44 heures, cela se traduit par un salaire annuel qui dépasse 45 000 $ par année plus les avantages sociaux.  Chaque installation de jardin communautaire est évolutive pour répondre aux besoins de capacité d’une communauté Autochtone spécifique, où la masse salariale annuelle totale, y compris les avantages pour les opérations pendant une année complète, selon la taille de l’installation, pourrait dépasser les 3 000 000 $ à 6 000 000 $. La plus grande partie de cette masse salariale vise à demeurer dans la collectivité des Premières Nation ou des Inuits. L’impact économique de cette injection de nouvelle monnaie sera considérable et l’effet se multiplie localement comme prévu. Chaque communauté autochtone et chaque membre du personnel des opérations du projet aura droit à un apprentissage continu de la capacité de la communauté grâce à la formation et au développement de l’industrie avant et après les soins. Cela inclut le renforcement des compétences, des capacités, des instincts, des processus et des ressources agricoles internes dont les communautés autochtones et leurs membres ont besoin pour survivre, s’adapter et prospérer dans notre monde rapide et en constante évolution. L’accent sera mis sur la production de sources de nourriture additionnelles, naturelles et nutritives axées sur la santé, le bien-être futur et les revenus des familles Autochtones des Premières Nation et des Inuits, au sein de leurs communautés anishinabek pendant sept générations.  Notre modèle d’affaires n’est autre que cela, un modèle d’affaires conçu par les Autochtones pour les communautés autochtones. Notre société d’État agréée par Santé Canada achètera toutes les récoltes en s’assurant qu’aucun produit généré ne restera dans la communauté.   Nous fournissons un service pour aider les personnes avec leur propre approbation de licence de Santé Canada pour l’usage de cannabis à des fins médicales.Notre modèle d’affaires agricole 4Seasons continuera à promouvoir le développement des capacités au sein des communautés autochtones au Canada par une formation et une promotion continues en utilisant les capacités de la communauté et de ses membres pour encourager leur développement, leur communauté et notre modèle d’affaires.

 

L’avenir de la culture hydroponique rotative est enfin arrivé! Avantages obtenus en économisant au moins les 2/3 de votre espace requis pour produire les mêmes rendements, économisant de l’électricité avec une table de 12 ‘pour égaler le même ratio lumière / plante.  Six lampes DHI sont habituellement requise, alors qu’avec le modèle 420 Rotary Système hydroponique, vous aurez seulement besoin de quatre lampes DHI.  Le jardin est un système complet de plugin et de croissance qui comprend des capteurs ainsi qu`un système d’alimentation.

Chaque Gro-Tower est conçu pour l’électricité avec des opérations ajustables de diesel et d’installation solaire.  Notre système « Gro-Tower » utilise environ 2,9 kW par jour au total. Cela comprend les pompes, les ventilateurs, les capteurs, le système d’alimentation et le moteur (240v-20amp 50/60 Hz). Pas besoin de construire des tables, de câbler des ballasts ou d’acquérir une aide électrique professionnelle extérieure. Nos tours de jardin sont sur roues et peuvent se déplacer rapidement dans n’importe quelle pièce ou endroit, et ce, à tout moment.

Il faudra un peu de temps pour que le traditionnel «Maître cultivateur» se penche sur cette nouvelle ère et trouve une façon novatrice de cultiver des produits frais, des aliments naturels et de la marijuana médicale. La plupart des «maîtres cultivateurs» ont généralement cultivé leurs propres méthodes, souvent couronnées de succès, mais très «traditionnelles» au fil des ans, utilisant principalement leurs propres méthodes de culture établies sans pour autant sortir de notre «boîte de culture hydroponique rotative new age».

RotaryGro-Tower est une entreprise manufacturière canadienne qui est devenue leader mondial de l’industrie agroalimentaire en hydroponie rotative, cultivant des produits naturels, frais et naturels tout au long de l’année. Nous avons une division de soutien corporatif dédiée, travaillant aux côtés des Premières Nation pour faire progresser l’expertise, la formation, l’éducation, le savoir-faire et l’expérience de l’agriculture Autochtone dans les communautés des Premières Nation et Inuits partout en Amérique du Nord.

La FNG Community Garden Farm est un système de drainage et d’inondation «rotatif». La croissance des plantes dans un jardin hydroponique rotatif a pour résultat des modèles de croissance uniformes, aidant ainsi à rendre les prévisions de récolte et l’ordonnances plus faciles à gérer pour le producteur. La compression causée par la rotation produit des plantes avec plus d’entre-nœuds (sites de floraison) et de meilleurs profils de saveur. Notre système réduit considérablement les coûts associés à la culture hydroponique conventionnelle, y compris : la construction des installations, la taille et les coûts d’entretien; les coûts d’utilité; les coûts atmosphériques, hydriques et nutritifs; et les coûts de lutte contre les ravageurs et les maladies. Des modules logiciels optionnels permettent de surveiller toutes les facettes de la production tout en maintenant les normes les plus élevées de qualité et de sécurité.

 

Notre système de contrôle automatisé surveille tous les aspects du système de culture Garden Farming incluant notre alerte automatique lorsque les paramètres sont en dehors des paramètres configurables. Notre système possède également une  surveillance active des niveaux de température ambiante, d’humidité et de CO2 et des paramètres du jardin pour la température de l’eau, le niveau d’eau, le pH et le niveau de TDS. Disponible uniquement sur notre ligne Modèle, notre système de contrôle automatisé offre une vue unique de l’ensemble de vos opérations avec des fonctions de correction automatique pour garantir des réglages optimaux à tout moment. Les plantes insérées dans des cubes de type « Rock-Wool » sont fixées dans les «Quick Drain Trays», placé dans les plateaux à l’intérieur d’une roue circulaire motorisée permettant  au jardin de pivoter 24 heures sur 24 autour de deux lampes HID fixes. Il faut environ une heure pour que les plateaux accomplissent un tour. Deux réservoirs sont fournis, un en haut et en bas. Une pompe placée dans le réservoir inférieur est allumée, remplissant le réservoir supérieur à la profondeur désirée. Les «bacs de vidange rapide» sont ensuite retournés dans le mélange nutriment / eau, alimentant les plantes.Notre système rotatif Gro-Towers peut être empilé de deux à trois étages de haut pour une utilisation optimale de l’espace, garantissant une utilisation maximale de l’espace ainsi que des rendements en quantité de qualité pour satisfaire les partenaires et les investisseurs ainsi que les futurs clients communautaires. Comme vous le savez, les opérations médicinales sont hautement réglementées, où les déchets sont à la fois gérés et contrôlés. Notre système demande un minimum de taille et /ou de soin des plantes. Encore une fois, la compression résultant de la rotation se produit dans les plantes avec plus d’entre-nœuds (sites de floraison) et de meilleurs profils de saveur, avec moins de coupe, nous donnant des modèles de résultats de rendements plus élevés. Notre système hydroponique rotatif intérieur triplera vos rendements, dans la même période de croissance par rapport aux méthodes de culture traditionnelles, en utilisant le même espace, dans le même temps de cycle de croissance

 

HVAC est beaucoup plus que quelques pièces d’équipement mécanique. C’est une composante essentielle et intégrale de chaque installation réussie d’agriculture de jardin « 4seasons ».

 

  • Un système CVC fonctionne mieux lorsqu’il prend en compte le climat local et les conceptions initiales de bâtiments pré-planifiés.

 

  • Dans une installation écologique «pré-planifiée», l’équipement de chauffage et de refroidissement dans chaque pièce peut être plus petit, moins coûteux et moins compliqué.

 

La conservation de l’énergie, la qualité de l’air intérieur et l’environnement de croissance sont parmi les principaux problèmes de construction écologique liés au chauffage, à la climatisation et à la ventilation. Ces systèmes interdépendants peuvent être compliqués, coûteux à installer et exploiter.  Par contre, les bâtiments écologiques peuvent également offrir de nombreuses possibilités de simplification et d’économie. La conception CVC suit d’autres étapes de construction fondamentales qui peuvent collectivement réduire la taille du système de chauffage et de refroidissement de 30 à 50%. L’orientation solaire, l’isolation, la disposition et la conception des fenêtres, et même la végétation sur le chantier, affectent directement les charges de chauffage et de refroidissement. Concevoir un système basé sur la demande réelle plutôt que la pratique conventionnelle est essentielle.

 

  • FNG s’assure que les équipements de chauffage et de refroidissement de nos conceptions CVC sont adaptés aux procédures établies de l’industrie.

 

  • Nous concevons le système de CVC de concert avec d’autres composantes du bâtiment, y compris l’isolation, les fenêtres, la masse solaire et l’orientation.

 

  • Nous réduisons autant que possible la taille, la dépense et la complexité des systèmes mécaniques.

 

  • Nous installons des ventilateurs de taille adéquate dans toutes les salles de culture, salles de réunion et de formation, salles de bain, salles communes, épiceries, marchés et cuisines.

 

  • Dans le système de ventilation de l’installation, le ventilateur à récupération de chaleur capture et stock la chaleur latente.

 

  • Spécification de l’équipement de chauffage à haute efficacité et des climatiseurs avec un SEER élevé.

 

  • Dans les systèmes à air pulsé, qui fait passer les conduits à travers l’espace conditionné si possible et sceller tous les raccords de conduit avec du mastic.

 

  • Éviter le chauffage par résistance électrique, sauf s’il est utilisé uniquement sur une base intermittente.

La conservation de l’énergie, la qualité de l’air intérieur et l’environnement de croissance sont parmi les principaux problèmes de construction écologique liés au chauffage, à la climatisation et à la ventilation. Ces systèmes interdépendants peuvent être compliqués, coûteux à installer et coûteux à exploiter, mais les bâtiments écologiques offrent également de nombreuses possibilités de simplification et d’économie. Toutes les pièces ont été conçu une par une, résultants de nombreuses caractéristiques solaires passives construites dans une installation verte d’agriculture de jardin. La conception CVC suit d’autres étapes de construction fondamentales qui peuvent collectivement réduire la taille du système de chauffage et de refroidissement de 30 à 50%. L’orientation solaire, l’isolation, la disposition et la conception des fenêtres, et même la végétation sur le chantier, affectent directement les charges de chauffage et de refroidissement.

Son objectif est de fournir des contrôles écologiques thermiques produisant une qualité de l’air intérieur acceptable. La conception des systèmes CVC est une sous-discipline de la construction mécanique, basée sur les principes de la thermodynamique, de la mécanique des fluides et du transfert de chaleur. Le système CVC fait partie intégrante des structures commerciales et résidentielles telles que les serres intérieures, les maisons unifamiliales, les immeubles d’habitation et les résidences pour personnes âgées. HVAC comprend également des bâtiments industriels ainsi que des bureaux de taille moyenne à grande, des gratte-ciels et hôpitaux, des navires et environnements marins où les conditions de construction saines et sécuritaires sont contrôlées pour la température et l’humidité.Les trois fonctions centrales de chauffage, ventilation et climatisation sont profondément liées à une nécessité de fournir des contrôles thermiques environnementaux pour le confort et la qualité acceptable de l’air intérieur dans des coûts d’installation, d’exploitation et d’entretien raisonnables. Ventilation (le V dans HVAC) est le processus d’échange ou de remplacement de l’air de n’importe quel espace pour fournir une haute qualité de l’air intérieur qui implique le contrôle de la température, le réapprovisionnement en oxygène et l’élimination de l’humidité, des odeurs, fumée, chaleur, et autres gaz. La ventilation élimine les odeurs désagréables et l’humidité excessive provenant de l’air extérieur, faisant circuler l’air intérieur du bâtiment en empêchant la stagnation de l’air intérieur. La ventilation comprend à la fois l’échange d’air vers l’extérieur et la circulation de l’air à l’intérieur du bâtiment. Une ventilation appropriée est l’un des facteurs les plus critiques pour maintenir une qualité acceptable de l’air intérieur dans les bâtiments et les jardins potagers intérieurs. Les procédés de ventilation d’une structure combinent des types mécaniques / forcés et naturels. Les systèmes de qualité CVC « Farm FNG » sont conçus pour la salle de culture individuelle.

 

First Nation Growers LP est exceptionnellement bien positionnée et devance les autres producteurs hydroponiques en raison d’une relation fiable et exclusive avec notre fabricant canadien de tour « Gro ». Notre entente permet à nos clients et autres producteurs de Fresh Food Garden Farm des Premières Nation et des communautés Inuits d’avoir accès à notre système de contrôle entièrement automatisé 365/24/7 pour climats froids ou chauds, exclusif aux producteurs des Premières Nation.

Toutes les facettes des environnements de croissance et de production sont surveillées et enregistrées tout au long de chaque cycle de croissance, 365 jours par an, 7 jours sur 7, 24 heures sur 24, avec des alertes intégrées lorsque les paramètres de croissance sont en dehors des paramètres configurables prédéfinis. Grâce à un tableau de croissance, nous ne sommes jamais seuls dans le suivi de la croissance ou de la production technique électronique détaillé, disponible pour la référence historique de chaque cycle de croissance pour chaque produit de chaque Gro-Tower.

Ce système de contrôle automatisé surveille chaque aspect de la croissance avec une méthode fournissant des alertes immédiates et automatiques lorsque les paramètres de croissance sont en dehors des paramètres préconfigurés. Le système comprend ;  une surveillance du climat froid ou chaud, des températures ambiantes intérieures, de l’humidité, des niveaux de Co2, des niveaux de PH et de TDS et d’autres paramètres de ferme de jardin définis pour les températures de l’eau pour chaque unité de culture. Ce système de surveillance maintient le plus haut niveau de qualité du cycle de croissance avec nos rendements élevés de sécurité.

Des moniteurs de croissance sont installés sur chaque site du projet Gro-Tower (sur la tour elle-même) ainsi qu’au siège social de FNG pour assurer le suivi de la croissance, la sécurité et l’assistance 365/24/7 du projet, garantissant ainsi un succès continu.

Les alimentations électriques sont les chevaux de trait derrière tout l’équipement électronique et électrique dans chaque communauté. Ils sont disponibles dans plusieurs variétés pour s’adapter à la gamme des systèmes qu’ils alimentent. L`appel vers des conceptions d’alimentation électrique plus petites, plus écologiques et moins chères est plus intense que jamais. Des rendements plus élevés, des densités de puissance plus élevées, des délais de mise sur le marché, des exigences normalisées et des réductions de coûts ont une incidence sur les modèles et les concepteurs.

Concevoir une alimentation est un processus compliqué. FNG essais d’augmenter une partie des besoins en énergie des communautés indigènes dans notre propre installation de ferme de jardin communautaire. Nous engageons continuellement la technologie émergente, dans le but de rester technologiquement avancés dans le meilleur intérêt de l’environnement et de nos partenaires Autochtones. Nous incluons des ressources d’énergie renouvelable pour les projets «appartenant à la communauté» et nos installations appartenant à des tiers, dont la source d’énergie peut être partagée par une communauté, dans notre processus de planification globale. « Les énergies renouvelables » est un concept important qui mérite d’être pris en considération pour chaque projet de jardin communautaire. Nous mettons ensuite cette technologie à la disposition de chaque collectivité des Premières nations et des Inuits avec qui nous travaillons partout au Canada, créant ainsi une relation cohésive entre la communauté, l’environnement et chaque installation agricole de jardinage.

L’Agence internationale de l’énergie a prévu que si rien n`est pris en main, un milliard de personnes seront sans accès à l’électricité en 2030 ! La plupart de ces personnes vivent dans des communautés isolées du monde entier, loin du réseau de distribution. Il est généralement peu pratique ou peu économique d’étendre le réseau de distribution à ces zones dispersées en raison des coûts excessifs de la construction du réseau. Par conséquent, les générateurs diesel autonomes fournissent aux communautés leur principale source d’électricité. Cependant, les problèmes d’alimentation électrique au diesel, tels que la pollution et le coût élevé du carburant, ont attiré l’attention du public sur les ressources d’énergie renouvelable disponibles localement. Les progrès des technologies des énergies renouvelables et la hausse du prix du diesel rendent les systèmes RE de plus en plus populaires, notamment dans les zones reculées. Des initiatives interdépendantes sont également menées pour promouvoir l’utilisation des énergies renouvelables non seulement par les pouvoirs publics, mais aussi par les entreprises d’électricité. Des études récentes suggèrent qu’un système d’ER autonome peut constituer une alternative rentable à l’extension coûteuse du réseau ou à l’électrification du diesel.

Les sources d’énergie renouvelables et non renouvelables ont des caractéristiques économiques positivement différentes. Le coût initial élevé en capital demeure probablement l’obstacle le plus important à la promotion des énergies renouvelables, tandis que l’énergie conventionnelle, comme le diesel, a tendance à avoir des coûts d’exploitation élevés. Par conséquent, envisager un compromis entre l’énergie renouvelable et l’énergie traditionnelle pour le coût de la vie, la conservation de l’environnement et la faisabilité technique semble être la réponse approprié.

Les résultats de l’analyse hybride solaire-vent-diesel-batterie sont concentrés sur la qualité de l’alimentation, le coût de la vie et l’émission de gaz à effet de serre. La motivation de cette étude est d’essayer d’examiner toutes les solutions d’alimentation électrique possibles pour cette île, y compris la production d’énergie renouvelable et non renouvelable. Par conséquent, huit options de génération d’énergie sont étudiées, y compris les systèmes hybrides RE et diesel avec et sans stockage.

Par conséquent, un générateur diesel est inclus pour faire un système hybride RE et diesel. La disposition du générateur diesel peut monter et descendre pour s’adapter à la sortie intermittente de RE. La réduction significative de la capacité de stockage de la batterie, de la capacité PV et de la puissance des éoliennes (WT) réduit le coût du système et améliore la fiabilité de l’alimentation, quand optimiser la combinaison PV, WT des batteries peut limiter la consommation de carburant du générateur.

Le diagramme schématique d’un système hybride solaire-vent-diesel-batterie, avec ressources solaires et éoliennes fournissent généralement de l’énergie en vrac, alors que le générateur diesel fonctionne comme une sauvegarde. Le PV et le WT produisent du courant continu, qui est converti en courant alternatif par le convertisseur pour servir la charge, la puissance restante sera alors utilisée pour charger la batterie. Lorsque la sortie RE ne peut pas répondre à la demande de charge, les composants expédiés (batterie et générateur diesel) seront lancés. Le convertisseur est bidirectionnel, convertissant non seulement le courant continu de RE et les batteries en courant alternatif pour servir la charge, mais converti aussi le surplus de courant alternatif pour charger la batterie.

CONDITIONS SOCIALES DES PEUPLES AUTOCHTONES ET INUITS

 

Les injustices historiques ont laissé les enfants, les jeunes et les famillesAautochtones privée des soutiens et services dont ils avaient grand besoin, de faibles revenus et des endroits éloignés. Les peuples Autochtones du Canada sont nos peuples oubliés privés de leurs terres, de leurs traditions culturelles et de leur mode de vie unique. Des enfants ont été retirés de leurs familles et envoyés dans des pensionnats – où beaucoup sont dans des situations abusives – avec des effets intergénérationnels, bien documentés et durables dont beaucoup ont encore à faire face aujourd’hui.

 

L’organisation First Nation Growers Inc. s’est engagée à améliorer le développement social global et le bien-être des peuples Autochtones et Inuits. En renforçant chaque jour les régimes alimentaires sains tout au long de l’année et en offrant un accès continu à des aliments frais et abordables dans chaque communauté Autochtone, nous aiderons les Premières Nation et les Inuits à développer leur potentiel de développement social positif grâce à une meilleure santé.

Les communautés Autochtones, Inuits, Canadiennes et non Autochtones sont privées de produits frais de qualité à prix raisonnable, tout au long de l’année. Ce problème résulte en un manque de nutrition saine et naturelle pour les membres de la collectivité. Les communautés reçoivent constamment des produits de qualité inférieure médiocres,  livrés tout au long de l’année.  Le prix des produits est souvent extrêmement élevé en raison de facteurs tels que le transport à longue distance et les endroits éloignés.

À ce jour, de nombreux paliers de bureaucratie et le gouvernement du Canada ont ignoré les producteurs de climats rigoureux et froids qui opéraient à une échelle commercialement viable, desservant les communautés Autochtones et Inuits des plus.

Pour des raisons inconnu, il n’a pas été prioritaire, ni dans leur meilleur intérêt économique ou politique de promouvoir autre chose que la livraison de produits et de fruits et légumes frais de qualité médiocre dans d`autre communautés du Nord Canadien.

Aucune autre entreprise à notre connaissance, n’a offert à ces communautés, ainsi que nos frères et sœurs, une solution communautaire alternative, nutritive, abordable disponible à l’année.

FNG est déterminé à résoudre ce problème en répondant aux besoins de la collectivité grâce à une solution abordable et respectueuse de l’environnement pour toutes les collectivités, en particulier dans nos régions éloignées et sous-Canadiennes ainsi que les communautés de climat froid.

La qualité des produits frais dans les communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits à travers le Canada est presque inexistante en ce qui concerne la condition et le prix ridiculement élevé. Cela nuit à la santé et au bien-être quotidien d’un trop grand nombre de collectivités Inuits et des Premières Nation ainsi que leurs peuples. À ce jour, très peu de propriétaires et d’entreprises semblent intéressés à répondre sérieusement à ces besoins nutritionnels critiques quotidiens au nom des peuples Autochtones.

Les producteurs des Premières Nation répondront à ces besoins cruciaux pour toutes les collectivités des Premières Nation et des Inuits, peu importe leur emplacement géographique.

Grâce à nos technologies de pointe et notre partenariat avec Turtle Island Holistic Medicines, nous espérons réussir a enlever un jour les abus d’opiacés, de méthadone, de fentanyl et de nombreux autres médicaments d’ordonnance dangereux, y compris les produits chimiques domestiques toxiques qui ont créé une crise sanitaire auprès de beaucoup trop de communautés Canadiennes.

First Nation Growers s’engage à devenir un leader autochtone au sein de l’industrie, demeurant à l’avant-garde de notre profession Autochtone grâce aux dernières technologies, aux innovations et à l’éducation de notre personnel et de notre clientèle. Notre effort a pour but d`améliorer le bien-être et la santé générale par l`entremise de la création des politiques de l’entreprise strictement supervisé par une équipe de professionnels, mettant l’accent sur des produits de qualité, un excellent service et l’éducation ainsi que la sensibilisation des clients.

Nous sommes heureux de fournir notre soutien total pour promouvoir les nouvelles opportunités de développement économique Autochtone trouvées et / ou améliorées dans la création d’emplois indigènes, ainsi que la formation et l’éducation des membres des Premières Nation dans leurs communautés respectives.

Notre quête pour améliorer le bien-être holistique de soi grâce à des outils innovants et technologiquement avancés produira des flux nutritionnels communautaires améliorés et des médicaments sacrés. Grâce à notre culture hydroponique rotative avancée, la culture de produits frais et d’autres aliments naturels à longueur d’année créera des débouchés économiques et des emplois pour les membres de la collectivité grâce à de nouveaux revenus provenant de sources autonomes. Il se doit depuis longtemps d`invoquer la réaffirmation de nos droits Autochtones inhérents par les Nations Unies en incluant l’usage personnel des médecines traditionnelles et / ou sacrées, à la fois médical et récréatif des produits médicinaux indigènes y compris leurs dérivés holistiques pour amélioration de la santé et du bien-être.

FNG a pour mission de contribuer à l’amélioration de la communauté indigène en faisant progresser la santé holistique Autochtone et le bien-être de soi. Nos efforts pour poursuivre le développement agricole intérieur de produits frais, d’aliments naturels et de médicaments traditionnels incluant des médicaments indigènes médicaux et récréatifs et / ou leurs dérivés, en s’inspirant des Règlements ACMPR du Canada remontes de très loin dans notre histoire.

Les peuples Autochtones se réfèrent aux premiers habitants du Canada et comprennent les Inuits, les Métis et les Premières Nation vivant dans les réserves et hors réserve. Les données nationales sur les peuples Autochtones et l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages au Canada proviennent principalement des cycles de l’Enquête sur la santé dans les collectivités canadiennes (ESCC). Cependant, l’ESCC exclut les personnes vivant dans les réserves au Canada, et les données de ces enquêtes ne représentent donc pas l’expérience des Autochtones vivant dans les réserves qui constituent un peu plus du tiers des peuples Autochtones du Canada.

 

Les études sur les peuples autochtones démontrent une grande vulnérabilité et insécurité alimentaire des ménages à plusieurs reprises. Les ménages Autochtones au Canada sont plus susceptibles de connaître des facteurs de risque sociodémographiques associés à l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages (p. Ex. pauvreté extrême, maternité unique, logement locatif et recours à l’aide sociale) que les familles non Autochtones. Malgré les facteurs ayant été pris en compte, les ménages Autochtones présentent tout de même un risque beaucoup plus élevé d’insécurité alimentaire et sont plus susceptibles d’être gravement touchés par celle-ci.

 

Les chercheurs et praticiens des communautés Autochtones ont souligné les pratiques distinctes d’approvisionnement, de préparation et de distribution des aliments chez les groupes Autochtones. La mesure de l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages utilisée dans l’ESCC a été élaborée dans des contextes non Autochtones et ne cherche pas à obtenir de l’information pouvant être importante pour l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages Autochtones.

 

L’insécurité alimentaire des ménages est liée aux marchés publics et aux sources traditionnelles (pêche, chasse) des facteurs plus généraux comme les changements climatiques et la pollution environnementale, ce qui est importants en raison de leur impact sur la disponibilité des plantes comestibles et animaux trouvés dans la nature. La recherche dans le domaine de l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages fondée sur les réalités de la culture, des croyances et des systèmes politiques des peuples Autochtones est essentielle au développement d’interventions appropriées pour réduire l’insécurité alimentaire des ménages chez les Premières Nation et les Inuits.

Les communautés Autochtones, Inuits et autres communautés Autochtones et non autochtones plus éloignées, sont privées de produits frais toute l’année. Chaque communauté souffre à leur tour d’un manque de nutrition quotidienne, saine et abordable en raison des produits constamment médiocres et inférieurs à la moyenne qui sont livrés à leurs communautés, le tout à des prix injustes. Les résultats sont des produits qui sont trop souvent de très faible qualité à des prix exorbitant.

 

Les Premières Nation, les Inuits et nos collectivités Canadiennes non Autochtones plus éloignées ont un grand besoin de produits nouveaux de qualité supérieure, tout au long de l’année. La FNG permet aux communautés autochtones de cultiver des produits qui améliorent la santé des communautés individuelles et de leurs membres ainsi que les enfants de leurs membres. Ce but pourra être atteint en produisant des produits frais, légumes, fruits et herbes, à des prix abordables pour les membres de leur communauté et leurs enfants, améliorant ainsi la santé au sein des communautés autochtones.

 

Aucune autre entreprise a notre insu, n`a jusqu’à  maintenant offert une solution communautaire alternative pour ces communautés.  Nos frères et sœurs ont maintenant une solution communautaire alternative, abondante sur le plan nutritionnel, abordable et accessible toute l’année. First Nation Growers LP. attaquera de front ce problème en répondant aux besoins de la collectivité grâce à des jardins potagers communautaires quatre saisons climatisés à l’année.

 

FNG fournit une solution attrayante, abordable, viable et respectueuse de l’environnement pour chaque communauté, y compris nos environnements les plus éloignés, sous-zéro, défavorables géographiquement et à croissance restreinte.

 

La constance des produits frais dans les collectivités des Premières Nation et des Inuits à travers le Canada est presque inexistante en matière de qualité et trop souvent offert à des prix exorbitant. Ceci nuit à la santé et au bien-être de beaucoup trop de Premières Nation et d’Inuits, y compris leurs membres et les enfants de leurs membres.

 

La réticence à changer les valeurs alimentaires actuelles de nos communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits constitue un problème sous-jacent. Le manque actuel d’efforts pour fournir aux communautés une éducation nutritionnelle et des produits frais, de qualité, abordables tout au long de l’année, provoque un manque de nutrition dans les régimes alimentaires quotidiens des peuples Autochtones.

 

Les préoccupations en matière de nutrition et de santé seront abordées en fournissant des informations actuelles, ainsi qu`une éducation et un accès facile pour assurer la disponibilité de produits frais de qualité toute au long de l’année. First Nation Growers LP répond aux besoins nutritionnels essentiels de chaque collectivité des Premières Nation et des Inuits, peu importe le lieu géographique et le climat.

 

First Nation Growers LP., Fondatrice, Directrice générale, Dawn Tabobondung est issue de lignées anishinabek exceptionnelles, avec une lignée Autochtone très forte et dévouée. Dawn est membre de la communauté des Premières Nation qui a réussi et fait ses preuves dans le combat. Elle a toujours été fière d’aider ses collègues membres de la bande et le peuple Anishinabek.

 

Les membres de sa famille ont toujours eu une forte attirance à aider les autres.

 

La mère de Dawn, Joyce Tabobondung, est une aînée des Premières Nation et une ancienne chef de communauté de région. Elle est très respectée dans sa communauté et son pays en tant qu’ancienne chef des Premières Nation.

 

Le frère aîné de Dawn, Warren, occupe actuellement le poste de chef de la Première Nation de Wasauksing.

 

Tous les membres de la famille ont tendance à suivre les traces de la grand-mère de Dawn, la chef Flora Tabobondung, qui a reçu le prestigieux Ordre royal du Canada en 1988 pour sa contribution continue envers l’épanouissement de ses peuples.

 

Nous mentionnons ces faits pour montrer le dévouement et le véritable engagement des membres de la famille contribuant à l’amélioration du peuple Anishinabek. Dawn a les mêmes caractéristiques et la même fierté de diriger l’équipe de la GNP en offrant de l`aide à sa communauté ainsi qu’à tous les autres producteurs d’aliments frais des Premières Nation et des Inuits du Canada.

 

Sa vision novatrice et la mission de l’entreprise fourniront un système de ferme-jardin en pleine croissance, abordable et financièrement viable, entièrement automatisé et quatre saisons. Ce système améliorera la nutrition communautaire tout au long de l’année, quel que soit l’emplacement de la communauté.

 

Grâce au développement, à la formation et à l’éducation offert par FNG; les collectivités des Premières Nation et les collectivités Inuits pourront servir leur population suite au développement de leur propre jardin paysager, produisant des légumes frais, des herbes et des plantes médicinales traditionnelles.

 

Croître aujourd’hui, pour un avenir plus sain!

 

Dawn Tabobondung est membre fière de la Première nation Wasauksing qui, comme sa grand-mère Flora Tabobondung ; récipiendaire de l’Ordre royal du Canada, a toujours eu une grande passion pour aider les autres, en particulier les membres des Premières nation.

 

Dawn est extrêmement fière de son poste actuel au sein de la Première nation de Wasauksing, en tant que coordonnatrice du programme de revenus de jeu. Dawn voit sa position comme étant gratifiante sachant qu’elle peut aider, de temps à autre, le soutien et l’aide que ses confrères et consœurs peuvent avoir besoin, par l’entremise du Programme des recettes des jeux des Premières nations.

 

Dawn est la fière mère de trois enfants brillants, tous fiers membres de la Première Nation de Wasauksing, deux  fréquentent actuellement l’Université, un à Ottawa et un autre à Halifax. Sa plus jeune se prépare à terminer ses études secondaires l’année prochaine.

 

La politique a toujours fait partie de la famille Tabobondung, où certains disent qu’elle s`est transmise de génération en génération. Dawn est fière de suivre l’exemple de sa grand-mère et de sa mère Joyce, en s’efforçant toujours de trouver de nouvelles façons de contribuer véritablement au mieux-être de sa communauté et de ses peuples.

 

Dawn est diplômée du College George Brown , à Toronto, en gestion et administration de bureau, et possède de solides antécédents ainsi qu`une grande expérience en comptabilité. Dawn a occupé des postes de direction dans les Premières Nation en tant qu’agent de développement économique, administrateur de bureau, gestionnaire de bureau et gestionnaire de la marina des Premières Nation.

 

Dawn a également joué un rôle de gestion important dans Wasausink Lands Development Corporation, en tant qu’administrateur, pendant une période difficile de la restructuration de WLI, y compris la mise en place de nouveaux membres avec l’accord au moment où la Société desservait mieux la communauté de Wasauksing. Dawn était une commissionnaire enregistré à WLI , reconnu par le département des affaires indigènes.

 

En dehors de ses heures de travail habituelles, Dawn a récemment eu la passion de lancer un système innovateur de production intérieur de fruits et légumes frais entièrement automatisé, ouvert 12 mois par année. Ce système sera un élément important d’un centre de formation en recherche et développement des Premières Nation. Située dans sa Première nation, elle cultive à l’intérieur des produits frais, légumes, fruits, herbes indigènes et remèdes traditionnels qui contribuent à l’amélioration et au bien-être des membres des Premières Nation et d’autres communautés Inuits du Canada.

First Nation Growers LP (FNG) est une entreprise 100% Autochtone à la fine pointe de la technologie. Notre entreprise est active à l’année longue grâce à notre système intérieur Fresh Foods Garden Farm System Company nous permettant ainsi de contrôler la création de produits frais 12 mois par année. Le système agricole de FNG opère au sein d’un équipement avancé de technologie hydroponique rotative.

 

La technologie de culture FNG est entièrement automatisée, à climat froid (Community Fresh Foods Garden Farm Systems) et / ou résidentielle (résidentielle Box Garden Farm) utilisant un système respectueux de l’environnement spécialement conçu pour l’agriculture biologique intérieur quatre saisons.

 

Nous offrons un système de culture intérieure sur mesure, techniquement avancé et abordable, pour la production de produits frais et naturels, répondant aux besoins des communautés Inuits et des Premières Nation du Canada.

 

First Nation Growers LP. a pour objectif de répondre aux besoins globaux des peuples Autochtones, y compris les collectivités Autochtones et Inuits les plus éloignées du Canada. Ces besoins seront comblés en offrant des occasions croissantes de produits frais tout au long de l’année, adressant les préoccupations de la communauté en matière de nutrition.

Avec un personnel de base composé de professionnels Autochtones expérimentés et une approche d’équipe pour chaque projet de jardin communautaire des Premières Nation et des Inuits, FNG peut leurs offrir une autonomie communautaire, ainsi qu’une viabilité financière porteur d’opportunités croissantes.

 

FNG offre des ateliers de formations et d’éducations de qualité disponible 12 mois par année, incluant le service à l’industrie, conçus par des Canadiens ayant comme priorité le meilleur intérêt de la communauté des Premières Nation et Inuits.

 

First Nation Growers LP. est fière de présenter son premier projet pilote autochtone, situé sur la Première Nation de Wasauksing, le «marché des légumes frais de Parry Island» desservant la Première Nation de Wasauksing et toutes les autres collectivités des Premières Nation des environs.

La gestion des déchets dépend de la façon de disposer des choses qu`on ne veut pas. FNG pense à « gestion durable des matériaux »  plutôt que « gestion des déchets »

 

Les producteurs des Premières Nation valorisent le droit de vivre et de travailler dans un environnement propre. En raison de l’éloignement et, dans certains cas, de la faiblesse des revenus, de nombreuses communautés Autochtones estiment qu’elles n’ont aucune possibilité d’améliorer de façon sûre et sécuritaire leurs méthodes de gestion et de collecte des déchets. Grâce à notre engagement à l’égard de chaque projet, les pratiques de gestion durable des matériaux apportent des améliorations à la santé des collectivités dans lesquelles nous travaillons et à la création d’un endroit sanitaire ou l’on peut vivre et travailler. En fin de compte, l’objectif de notre programme de recyclage FNG est de maximiser la récupération de nos matériaux de jardinage communautaires.

 

Les sociétés aisées voient souvent les déchets comme un problème environnemental. Le gaspillage peut être une source de revenu essentielle et flexible dans de nombreuses communautés, pouvant ainsi fournir des matières premières dans plusieurs secteurs de l’économie. L’un de nos objectifs est de rester technologiquement avancé dans le meilleur intérêt de l’environnement en fournissant des technologies de projet innovantes dans les ressources de gestion des déchets. Nous veillerons à ce que notre projet soit accessible à chaque collectivité des Premières nations et /ou des Inuits avec qui nous travaillons à travers le Canada, en créant une relation intégratrice entre la communauté, l’environnement et chaque installation d’agriculture coopérative.

 

Le compostage est une pratique de base de gestion durable des déchets qui transforme n’importe quel volume de déchets organiques accumulés en un produit utilisable. Les déchets organiques sont décomposés par des micro-organismes dans un environnement générateur de chaleur. Ce processus permettra de réduire le volume de déchets, ainsi que de détruire les organismes nuisibles, créant un produit commercialisable dans le processus. Le compostage est un processus par lequel les déchets organiques sont décomposés par des microorganismes, généralement des bactéries et des champignons, en formes plus simples. Ces micro-organismes utilisent le par produit du carbone comme source d’énergie. La dégradation des matériaux contenant de l’azote aboutit à un produit beaucoup plus uniforme créant un amendement de sol que FNG utilise dans nos salles de culture verticales. Les avantages du compostage comprennent la réduction du volume de déchets, l’élimination des parasites détruits par la chaleur et la production de matériaux bénéfiques et commercialisables. L’ajout de composte au sol augmente la teneur en matière organique, améliorant à son tour de nombreuses caractéristiques du sol qui permet la lente libération de nutriments pour l’utilisation des cultures pour des années subséquentes.

Le recyclage et la gestion des déchets est un système mettant en œuvre les ressources et non un système de gestion des déchets. Aujourd’hui, l’approche considérée comme une «meilleure pratique» consiste à considérer les matières recyclables comme des marchandises gérées dans le cadre d’un système de gestion des ressources compatible avec des cadres de gestion tels que «gestion durable des matériaux» et «zéro déchet». FNG adopte une approche collaborative. Les partenariats communauté-privé pour la prestation de services sont l’une des stratégies éprouvées pour la planification de la gestion des ressources. L’objectif principal du programme est de promouvoir des partenariats durables et autosuffisants entre chaque installation coopérative de ferme communautaire et les gouvernements autochtones locaux pour soutenir la formation et le fonctionnement d’une nouvelle coopération entreprise-communauté dans les systèmes de gestion et de recyclage des déchets solides. Le principal objectif du programme de gestion durable des matières premières FNG est de stimuler la coopération communautaire et minimiser les effets néfastes des déchets dans les communautés autochtones ainsi que d’améliorer les conditions de vie et les moyens de subsistance des Premiers Peuples du Canada et des communautés Autochtones avec lesquelles nous travaillons.

 

FNG s’engage à soutenir nos frères et sœurs Autochtones et leurs communautés tout en priorisant l’environnement. Notre objectif est de rester technologiquement avancé dans le meilleur intérêt de l’environnement, y compris le traitement durable de l’eau pour les sept prochaines générations. L’eau propre est le projet de priorité de notre coopérative d’agriculture de jardin communautaire 4seasons.

 

Nous travaillons en partenariat avec les communautés Autochtones locales pour aider les communautés les plus pauvres et les plus marginalisées à mettre en place des projets pratiques et durables de traitement naturel de l’eau, de l’assainissement et de l’hygiène. Ceux-ci doivent répondre aux besoins réels et desservir chaque installation coopérative de jardin communautaire avec les mêmes technologies innovatrices de traitement de l’eau que nous mettons à la disposition de toutes les collectivités des Premières Nation et des Inuits avec lesquelles nous travaillons à travers le Canada.

 

Les projets d’eau communautaires des Premières Nation comprennent quatre composantes inter reliées et essentielles qui combinent l’aide pour maximiser la santé et le développement. L’eau propre, l’assainissement de base, l’éducation à l’hygiène et l’agriculture naturelle sont les ABC du développement de projets – les bases d’un avenir meilleur pour chaque communauté, rendant l’eau propre à la culture maraîchère communautaire et à la consommation humaine.

 

FNG utilise des technologies de traitement de l’eau pratiques, adaptées au contexte local, rentables, nouvelles et innovantes afin de garantir que les exigences de maintenance opérationnelle pour les nouvelles installations d’approvisionnement en eau et d’assainissement puissent être rapidement apprises et adoptées par chaque communauté indigène locale indépendamment de sa location. Les aspects des projets de coopérative de jardin communautaire de First Nation Growers sont conçus et mis en œuvre en gardant à l’esprit la durabilité à long terme. À la fin de chaque projet, les membres de la communauté sont dotés de tous les outils et connaissances nécessaires pour gérer et entretenir l`installation de jardinage communautaire et de traitement de l’eau.

 

LES CULTIVATEURS DE PREMIÈRE NATION

La coopérative « Community Garden Farm » répond aux besoins de traitement de l’eau de tous les projets communautaires au Canada, peu importe leur emplacement et leur isolement. La plateforme de traitement d’eau FNG permet l’intégration de l’approvisionnement en eau propre dans toute communauté Autochtone et / ou Inuits éloignée du Canada, augmentant l’efficacité globale et l’accès à un approvisionnement en eau propre et naturel pour chaque jardin communautaire.

 

FNG Management est une vision collaborative entre deux membres de la famille proche qui partagent un objectif commun: faire la différence aujourd’hui pour demain dans nos communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits.  Dawn Tabobondung et sa mère, Joyce Tabobondung, ont toujours partagé la même vision pour trouver des moyens qui contribuent à l’amélioration de tous les peuples autochtones. Joyce Tabobondung agira à titre de vice-présidente corporative, agissant également à titre de conseillère autochtone principale. Elles ont toutes deux des biographies impressionnantes!

 

Dawn possède une vaste expérience en comptabilité d’entreprise avec une expérience essentielle en comptabilité de contrôle. Dawn a aussi une bonne communication et des compétences de confiance dans le travail auprès des membres et des organisations des Premières Nation et des non-Autochtones.

 

Joyce Tabobondung est une aînée Autochtone bien respectée et une ancienne chef de file des Premières Nation et des régions, occupant le poste de chef pendant de nombreuses années, comme l’a fait d`ailleur sa mère pendant tant d’années avant elle. Son fils, Warren, a également suivi ses traces, siégeant à titre de chef actuel de la Première Nation de Wasauksing. Joyce a occupé plusieurs postes clés au sein de la direction, du conseil et des Premières Nation tout au long de ses années et siège actuellement à titre de présidente du Centre d’amitié Anishinabek. Il n’y a pas de meilleur endroit pour diriger la vision de First Nation Growers LP, en établissant des partenariats communautaires des Premières Nation et des Inuits qui dureront sûrement plusieurs générations grâce aux valeurs fondamentales et à une claire vision de FNG.

 

Plus important encore, Joyce comprend les besoins et les désirs des Anishinabek et leurs préoccupations communautaires, y compris le bien-être nutritionnel essentiel des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits dans l’ensemble du Canada. FIRST NATION GROWERS LP,  possède une équipe de direction de quatre personnes qui comprend deux conseillers sectoriels de confiance et un consultant externe qui travaille étroitement sur notre entrée dans l’industrie de la culture rotative hydroponique, nous sommes convaincus d`avoir le bon départ des éléments de gestion en place pour créer un avenir sécurisé pour les FNG.

 

Embaucher des membres de la communauté autochtone là, où, et quand nous le pourrons sera une priorité pour  FNG.  Nous sommes à la recherche de membres des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits talentueux, dévoués et engagés qui sont fiers de travailler dans leur communauté. Nous savons que nos membres des communautés des Premières Nation et des Inuits peuvent effectuer les tâches dans toutes les zones d’opérations. Les titres d’emploi ne seront plus significatifs, car le travail sera accompli grâce à la collaboration et au travail d’équipe.

Dawn supervisera les activités quotidiennes de l’entreprise et Joyce se concentrera sur l’établissement de solides relations communautaires entre les Premières Nation et les Inuits dans toute l’île de la Tortue.

 

FNG s’engage à soutenir nos frères et sœurs autochtones et leurs communautés à travers le pays tout en priorisant Mère Nature. Nous croyons fermement au concept des « 7 générations ». En tant qu’organisation des Premières Nation, nous comprenons que nous sommes seulement les gardiens de cette terre pour les générations à suivent. Lorsque nous engageons un projet, nous nous demandons continuellement: «Quel sera l’impact de ce projet sur l`environnement pour les sept prochaines générations »?

 

FNG fait continuellement appel à des technologies émergentes dans le but de demeurer technologiquement avancées, et ce, dans le meilleur intérêt de l’environnement et de nos partenaires des Premières Nation et des Inuits. Nous incluons des ressources d’énergie renouvelable pour les projets «appartenant à la communauté» et d’autres installations appartenant à des tiers, dont la source d’énergie peut être partagée par l’ensemble de la communauté grâce à un processus complet de planification préalable. « Les énergies renouvelables » est un concept important qui mérite d’être pris en considération dans chaque ville et chaque projet FNG.

 

Nous travaillons en partenariat avec les communautés autochtones locales et les innovateurs technologiques pour aider les communautés les plus pauvres et les plus marginalisées à mettre en place des ressources communautaires et des installations efficaces et renouvelables. Cette forme de partenariat nous permet d’aider à répondre aux besoins réels de chaque communauté avec nos technologies avancées. Nous mettons ensuite cette technologie à la disposition de toutes les collectivités des Premières Nation et des Inuits avec lesquelles nous travaillons partout au Canada, créant ainsi une relation cohésive entre la communauté, l’environnement et nos installations d’agriculture coopérative 4seasons.

 

L’objectif principal d’une installation alimentée en énergie solaire partagée par FNG est de permettre aux membres d’une communauté de bénéficier de l’utilisation de l’énergie solaire même s’ils ne peuvent, ou ne veulent pas installer des panneaux solaires pour eux-mêmes. Les communautés de partenaires bénéficient du surplus d’électricité généré par l’installation de jardin potager à énergie solaire, qui peut coûter beaucoup moins cher que le prix qu’elles paieraient habituellement à leur fournisseur de services publics ou de carburant.

 

L’amélioration de l’environnement, la réduction des coûts énergétiques et la maîtrise de l’avenir de la communauté font partie des raisons pour lesquelles une communauté se penchera vers l`énergie solaire.  Beaucoup sont conscients que l`énergie solaire est un facteur crucial pour reprendre le contrôle de la croissance d`une population. La réduction des coûts énergétiques et des empreintes carbone apportera une amélioration significative de l’efficacité communautaire. Que vous soyez une communauté autochtone éloignée, un propriétaire, une entreprise ou un organisme sans but lucratif, les coûts de l’électricité et du carburant diesel peuvent représenter une part importante de vos dépenses mensuelles. Avec un système de panneaux solaires, vous générez de l’énergie pour l’ensemble de votre système. Même si vous ne produisez pas 100% de l’énergie que vous consommez, l’énergie solaire réduira vos coûts d’électricité ou de diesel, vous permettant d`économiser beaucoup d’argent. Les panneaux solaires ne sont pas une dépense – ils sont l’un des meilleurs moyens d’investir, de défrayer les coûts sortants d’une communauté, avec des rendements qui rivalisent avec ceux des investissements plus traditionnels tels que les actions et les obligations. Grâce à des économies d’électricité substantielles, le Canadien moyen paie son système de panneaux solaires en sept à huit ans et voit un retour sur investissement de 20% ou plus pendant le cycle de vie du système. L’un des avantages les plus apparents des panneaux solaires est la capacité de couvrir les prix des services publics. L’énergie solaire offre également des avantages environnementaux. Beaucoup de propriétaires, d’entreprises et d’organismes sans but lucratif optent pour l’énergie solaire parce qu’ils se concentrent sur la minimisation des problèmes environnementaux comme les changements climatiques et les problèmes de santé liés aux émissions de carbone. L’électricité produite par les panneaux solaires est entièrement exempte d’émissions. Lorsque vous utilisez l’énergie solaire renouvelable pour répondre à vos besoins énergétiques, vous réduisez la demande d’électricité et / ou de carburant diesel de votre service public. Par conséquent, votre usine de services publics émet moins de carbone lorsqu’elle produit l’énergie nécessaire pour répondre à la demande.  Dépendamment des ressources que votre service utilise pour fournir de l’énergie (combustibles fossiles tels que l’électricité, le carburant diesel et le charbon) sachez que votre décision de vous tourner vers l`énergie solaire favorisera considérablement l`environnement. La plupart des endroits au Canada ont suffisamment de lumière solaire pour produire suffisamment d’électricité à partir de panneaux solaires. Les facteurs les plus importants à considérer lors de l’évaluation de vos options de panneaux solaires sont les tarifs que vous payez pour l’électricité et / ou le carburant diesel ainsi que les rabais et les incitatifs qui vous sont offerts. Nos installations d’agriculture maraîchère communautaire alimentées à l’énergie solaire de FNG peuvent, avec la bonne planification,  générer suffisamment d’énergie pour répondre à vos besoins d’utilité communautaire.

Génération d’électricité écologique FNG

 

FNG s’engage à soutenir nos frères et sœurs autochtones et leurs communautés tout en priorisant Mère Nature.  Notre objectif est de rester technologiquement avancé dans le meilleur intérêt de l’environnement pour 7 générations. La production d’énergie électrique et l’efficacité de la consommation sont importantes pour chaque projet individuel de ferme-jardin communautaire 4 saisons.

L’électricité produite est immédiatement consommée à mesure qu’elle est produite. Parce qu’un générateur doit fonctionner à des niveaux de sortie variables, il ne sera pas toujours capable de fonctionner dans sa plage la plus efficace. Dans les exploitations commerciales éloignées et les communautés vivantes, où il n’y a pas d’accès au réseau et où la principale source d’électricité est un générateur à base de carburant, les effets de la consommation immédiate sont de plus en plus fréquents.

Les coûts énergétiques sont directement proportionnels aux frais de livraison, de stockage et de combustion des carburants.

L’efficacité n’est pas toujours priorité lorsque l’infrastructure essentielle repose sur des générateurs. L’énergie stockée déplace le paradigme de la consommation immédiate à l’énergie stockée. Un générateur n’a pas besoin de fonctionner 24 heures sur 24 et 7 jours sur 7 à des niveaux de sortie variables si il économise de l`énergie. Il peut à la place fonctionner pendant moins d’heures avec des rendements beaucoup plus élevés.

Un générateur solaire peut produire une puissance maximale lorsque l’énergie excédentaire est stockée pendant la journée et consommée le soir avec d’autres sources renouvelables telles que l’énergie solaire photovoltaïque. L’énergie stockée fait passer le paradigme de la consommation immédiate à l’énergie stockée, économisant ainsi les coûts de livraison, d’entreposage et de combustion du carburant diesel, tout en privilégiant l’environnement.

FNG 4seasons Community Garden Farms répond aux besoins énergétiques de chaque communauté autochtone du Canada, peu importe son emplacement et son isolement. Notre plate-forme de batterie universelle conteneurisée permet l’intégration du stockage d’énergie dans n’importe quelle grille, micro-réseau ou derrière le compteur, ce qui permet un contrôle de plusieurs flux de puissance, augmentant ainsi l’efficacité globale et réduisant les coûts énergétiques.

Notre objectif est de mettre en valeur et de rendre disponibles de nombreuses technologies novatrices du 21e siècle qui, réunies en une seule unité de travail «neurale», créeront des possibilités d’emplois et de développement économique Autochtones répondant aux besoins de certaines Premières Nation les plus éloignées du Canada et les communautés Inuits.

Nous viserons à créer des économies circulaires positives, autosuffisantes et circulaires au XXIe siècle au sein de la communauté autochtone elle-même grâce à ce que nous appelons l’agriculture communautaire, ce qui générera de nouvelles sources de revenus internes.

Le concept pourrait non seulement apporter des solutions aux communautés Autochtones du Canada et du monde entier, mais aussi favoriser l’émergence d’équipements et de concepts Canadiens fiables, éprouvés et exportables, de type «nouvelle génération-net-positif», pour lesquels les peuples Autochtones peuvent jouer un rôle clé dans la présentation de ces «nouvelles technologies vertes».

Notre vision est de créer des emplois Autochtones qui génèrent de nouvelles sources de revenus au sein des collectivités Inuits et des Premières Nation, façonnant le 21e siècle avec une économie circulaire communautaire Autochtone qui encourage des solutions de vie communautaire cohérentes et durables qui mèneront éventuellement à l’autonomie gouvernementale. Tous les citoyens Canadiens ont le droit de vivre en harmonie dans le 21e siècle et, pour les premiers Canadiens, cette déclaration est attendue depuis très longtemps.

Our FNG goal is to showcase and make available many 21st centuries, innovative technologies, that when encompassed into one “net neural” working unit together, will create indigenous employment and economic development opportunities that address the needs of some of Canada’s most remote First Nation and Inuit communities.

We will aim to create 21st century, net positive, self-sustainable, circular economies from within the Indigenous community itself through what we call Advance 4Seasons Agriculture Indoor Indigenous Joint Venture Community Garden Farming, thus generating new-found revenue streams from within.

The concept has the potential to not only bring solutions to Indigenous communities across Canada and throughout the world but can also foster the emergence of reliable, proven, exportable, Canadian “new-gen-net-positive” equipment and concepts for which Indigenous peoples can play a key role in actually showcasing these “new gen green technologies.”

Our vision is to create Indigenous employment that generates new-found revenue streams from within First Nation and Inuit communities themselves, shaping the 21st century, an Indigenous community circular economy that encourages cohesive, sustainable community living solutions that eventually lead toward self-government in favor of First Nation authority over First Nation citizenship.

Every Canadian citizen is entitled to live in harmony within today’s 21st century, and for Canada’s first people, that statement is — quite frankly — long overdue.

 

Thank you!

FNG guarantees that First Nation Growers is wholly indigenous owned, designed by indigenous people for indigenous communities. We make sure our 21st Century living solutions will begin with year-round fresh foods production within “Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture” industry.

FNG guarantees the ongoing financial successes of each “Craft Community Fresh Foods Garden Farming Market” facility that FNG joint venture partnerships’ with by providing project “pre-care” and “after-care” ongoing services, including security and 365/24/7 growth historical monitoring.  We will secure “pre-project” letters of intent with established Produce Wholesalers to buy excess produce for distribution to global markets.

First Nation and Inuit communities that wish to venture into the Health Canada sanctioned cannabis cultivation for medical purposes can rest assure FNG will look after personal Indigenous facility successes through pre-project signed and certified product buying agreements with Health Canada approved licensed producers. All joint venture agreements, application services finances, and product processing and packaging are made transparently disclosed between Indigenous personal craft community garden farming market growers and Health Canada licensed producers.

Our shared goal is to generate long-term, sustainable Indigenous employment opportunities while creating newfound revenues from within First Nation and Inuit communities themselves. We will help each Indigenous population reach this goal with our “Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture” craft producer striving toward ongoing, self-sustaining garden farming successes and generating a perpetual, year-round, fresh organic, produce and Indigenous medicines, at prices every community can afford.

FNG also utilizes “new gen” energy solutions allowing each facility to run as a standalone “net positive” facility, both in energy consumption and net revenue gains. We then meet the highest indigenous goal; to create a self-sustainable circular economy from within each First Nation and or Inuit community that we work with regardless of geographical site.

The First Nation Growers organization is the proud team leader of a powerful, experienced and creative forward thinking Project Advisory Planning Panel Team.  Each person involved has added value to our “new gen” industry leaders. We ensure self-sustainable successes in long-term, financially viable, Indigenous community garden Farming Markets.

FNG guarantees that each member of our Project Advisory Panel is a true “Friend of the Anishinaabe,” that is our promise to each indigenous community we work with, including organization members and advisors. As a wholly owned Indigenous organization, FNG fully understands and honours that we are merely caretakers of the land for bemaadizijig (all living people) to follow in the anishinaabemaadziwen (Anishinaabe way) footprint.

Our shared First Nation Growers (FNG) goal is to initiate long-term, sustainable Indigenous employment, and economic opportunities while creating newfound revenues from within First Nation and Inuit communities themselves by helping each Indigenous Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture community joint venture partner grower strive toward a self-sustaining, circular economy.

 

They do this by producing chemical and pesticide free, year-round, clean and green, natural, fresh organic foods and Indigenous medicines while utilizing energy solutions that are renewable and that help divert wastes while providing better enhanced NUTRITIONAL streams through net positive employment and economic opportunities from within the community itself.

“Listen and look out for the welfare of all peoples’ and always have in view not only the past and the present but also that of Seven Generations.”

“Anishinaabemaadziwen”

FNG has developed a unique business model in which the company will facilitate and assist other interested and qualified, potential indigenous community growers in obtaining a Health Canada LP (Licensed Producer) license in conjunction with operating their community facility.

As a result, FNG will become a significant joint venture partner with many Indigenous Health Canada cannabis cultivation facilities across Canada. Our untapped market is the indigenous First Nation and Inuit people of Canada as well as other urban centers.

FNG will oversee operations, provide ongoing industry education, training and assist in the development of each grow facility. This management style will enable FNG to regulate each facility to ensure that they maintain the approved operational standards and protocols of Health Canada and implement our own FNG craft grower industry advanced 4Seasons 420 agriculture system to provide ongoing facility successes.

 

Ultimately, First Nation Growers intends to be in a joint partnership with over 100 indigenous and urban craft producers throughout Canada within the next seven years.

 

Cannabis enthusiasts have been on a mission for decades now where it may even be safe to say they have collectively reached the mountaintop. The journey has been long while many now await the fruits of collective legal efforts around the world.  Indigenous medicinal medicines and their health benefits have been sought out since contact. At FNG we have a unique Cannabis LP craft growers division specially designated to assist Indigenous communities in creating their community circular economy from within through the world’s next multi-billion dollar industry. This is an industry that Indigenous people from around the world have been a part of since the beginning of time, where Indigenous communities and their leadership also have the inherent right to control their destiny and the rights to control their medicinal medicines.

FNG has partnered with a certified Health Canada Cannabis Licensed Producer for Medical Purposes (late stage applicant).

We plan to take our FNG cannabis business model across the country to ensure indigenous communities, and Indigenous cannabis for medical purposes facilities are at the forefront of the Health Canada applicant approval process and to eventually have individual Indigenous communities play an active role in the next billion dollar industry, from within indigenous communities themselves.

And why not?

Our “craft” facility will create 50-plus full-time, year-round employment positions within the community. These jobs will include above average “city” type wages along with family benefits to ensure economic sustainability for First Nation member families and residents.

 

We will encourage capacity building that includes ongoing training and education for employees and other benefits that allow members, residents and Indigenous peoples to make a quality living wage within their community and within the current multi-billion dollar industry of Canadian cannabis cultivation for medical purposes. This facility will strictly adhere to and operate within Health Canada guidelines, criteria, and strict security implementations, with a strong and primary focus on producing Medicinal Medical Cannabis.

 

An essential component of First Nation Growers business model is to help eradicate the abuse of opiates, methadone, fentanyl and other mainstream prescription drugs including harmful household chemicals that have created a severe crisis in far too many indigenous communities today. We must eradicate these drugs from within all communities. We are happy to provide our full support of your vision to promote community first new found and or improved economic development opportunities while creating new employment, training, and education opportunities for First Nation employment and economic gains from within their home communities.

 

Our FNG pursuit to improve the holistic well-being of oneself through innovative, and technologically advanced tools to produce enhanced community nutritional streams and other sacred medicines through sophisticated 4seasons agricultural, growing year-round fresh produce and other natural foods. This system creates economic opportunities and community member jobs through newfound own source revenues invoking the United Nations reaffirmation of our inherent indigenous rights that includes the personal use of traditional and or sacred medicines which include both medicinal and recreational marijuana products including derivatives thereof for the improved holistic health and well-being of oneself is long overdue. The primary reasons for supporting the venture are the overwhelming endorsement of fresh foods, water, and energy to name just a few the benefits a facility will bring to a community in the form of new employment opportunities and the economic impacts associated with such a unique, exciting venture.

 

Our FNG advanced 420 agriculture`s system contributes to the betterment of the lives and livelihoods of all peoples and mother earth.

 

We will need employees on the pure cultivation side of the business, including inside and outside community business development, transportation, and facility 24/365 security staffing to meet that Federal production license guidelines.

 

Also, we need further support staff including maintenance and grounds crew. A living wage from within your community would be a dream come true as for so many; our “living wage” concept is not remotely the same as a minimum wage.

 

The living wage sets a higher test – a living wage reflects what earners in a family need to bring home based on the actual costs of living in a specific community. The concept of the’ living wage’ is a call to private and public-sector employers to pay salaries that are sufficient to provide the basics to families with children.

 

The most basic entry-level position within the FNG Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture facility will be no less than $19.75 per hour. Based on a 44-hour work week, this translates into an annual salary that exceeds $45,000 per year plus benefits.

 

Each community garden facility is scalable to meet the capacity needs of a specific individual indigenous community, where total annual payroll including benefits for the operations during a full operational year, depending on facility size, could exceed $3,000,000 to $6,000,000 million in wages annually. The majority of this payroll is intended to stay within the First Nation or Inuit community. The economic impact of this infusion of new money will be substantial, and the effect is locally multiplying as expected.

 

Each Indigenous community and project operations personnel will be entitled to crucial ongoing community capacity learning through industry pre-care & after-care training and development. Included with this is the strengthening of indoor agricultural skills, abilities, instincts, processes, and resources that indigenous communities and their members need to survive, adapt, and thrive in our fast and always changing the world today. The emphasis will be on producing additional, natural, and nutritious food streams that are geared to First Nation and Inuit people better health, future well-being and their indigenous family incomes, from within their Anishinabek communities for 7 Generations.

Our business model is just that, a business model designed by Indigenous people for Indigenous communities. Our Health Canada approved LP’s will purchase all harvests ensuring no product generated will remain within the community.

No harvested product produced stays in the community. We do provide a service to assist individuals with their own Health Canada License approval for cannabis use for medical purposes.

Our advanced 4Seasons agriculture business model will continue to promote capacity development within Indigenous Canada communities through continued training and promotion utilizing the capacities of both community and their membership as we encourage further development for the betterment of themselves, their community and our business model.

First Nation Growers (FNG) is a proud Indigenous organization and Anishinaabe team leader of a very strong, intelligent, innovative, forward thinking project advisory panel that is made up of motivated individuals, experienced professionals, and very successful global industry leaders.

They offer their project expertise in providing FNG with added-value services that include Indigenous project pre-care and after-care capacity building support services, training and development along with accredited on-line nutrition, cooking, health and drug education seminars guided by the indigenous communities that we work with.

This helps to ensure the ongoing successes and well-being of each FNG community garden farming market.

FNG is dedicated to enhancing First Nation and Inuit peoples lifestyles for seven generations from within Indigenous communities themselves by directly addressing some of the most concerning living conditions of Canada’s indigenous peoples today. All communities across Canada are entitled to and should have their own community’s infrastructure working effectively at every level regardless of where they be situated, an urban centre, or perhaps an isolated northern outpost. All Canadians are entitled to live comfortably in harmony with mother earth and each other.

ANYTHING LESS IS YET ANOTHER EXCUSE AND, FRANKLY, NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE!

The FNG “new-age”, added-value technologies that we make available to each and every First Nations and Inuit community that we work with across Canada improves the day to day nutrition and overall health of the community by creating enriched nutritional streams through 4seasons, indoor, organic fresh produce grown within the indigenous communities themselves, maintaining a self-sustaining and cohesive relationship between community health and wealth, the environment, and mother earth through the use of state-of-the-art pesticide and chemical free advanced 4Seasons agriculture systems which produce natural, fresh greens and Indigenous medicines, herbs and teas at prices all family members can afford.

Quality always being paramount including maximum yields for maximum nutritional and economic gain.

The First Nation Growers organization is committed to improving the overall social development and well-being of Indigenous peoples through improving daily, year round healthy diets by providing continual access to “family affordable” fresh foods in every Indigenous community, regardless of geographic remoteness. We encourage better health through fresh foods that will, in turn, unlock First Nations and Inuit peoples’ true potential for better well-being.

Promoting positive social development through the creation of community employment that includes indigenous capacity building from within
and adding new found sources of revenues to help propel Canada’s indigenous peoples toward 21st century self-sustaining, “net positive” circular economies for seven generations.

FNG provides the following indigenous economic and employment opportunities. And we « capitalize » these for special emphasis.

— FRESH ORGANIC FOODS FOR LESS COST AND GENERATE INCOME FROM WITHIN INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES

— ORGANIC WASTE TO BIOQUBE PROVIDES ELECTRICITY AND FERTILIZER

— RENEWABLE ENERGY FROM SOLAR, WIND and GEOTHERMAL HEAT SOURCES TO PRODUCE ADDITIONAL ELECTRICITY

— ENERGY RECOVERY OF WASTE SAVES LANDFILL SITES BY 80% TO 90% AND PRODUCES ECOFUEL

— ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN HOME BUILDING FOR SAVINGS BOTH IN ENERGY AND COSTS OF

— PROVIDE 21ST CENTURY SUSTAINABILITY TOOLS and EQUIPMENT TO ELIMINATE DIESEL FUEL AND COSTS THEREOF

First Nation Growers organization is the proud team leader of a very strong, intelligent and experienced, innovative, forward thinking Project Advisory Planning Team, made up of individual project added services industry leaders to ensure self-sustainable successes in long-term, financially viable, Indigenous Community Garden Farming Markets. The FNG guarantee is that each member of our Project Advisory Panel is a true “Friend of the Anishinaabe”, that is our promise to both our organization members, advisors and each indigenous community we work with. As a wholly Indigenous organization, we fully understand that we are merely caretakers of the land for bemaadizijig (all living people) to follow in the anishinaabemaadziwen (Anishinaabe way) footprint.

Our objective is to enable First Nation and Inuit communities to become world leaders in the approach to “Advanced 4Seasons Agriculture”. Our cold-climate indoor, chemical and pesticide free garden greens production will supply and distribute through creating fresh food hubs within strategically located Indigenous territories across Canada. This new foods growth model will directly serve community members from within as well as being able to service other area communities. We will address high-quality food demand and shortages while advancing personal betterment and well-being through perpetual year-round healthy nutritional streams.

An essential FNG Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility project step is to seek out a community planning champion, a community member that believes and cherishes their community, a community champion that shares a strong vision for what their community can be, a community member that is so much more than just a nine-to-five employee. A community planning champion and there are many within every community, are the backbone of every indigenous population and play a huge role in the success of every garden facility planning process and its result.

Community Champions bring enthusiasm, curiosity, and fun to the FNG project planning table. Many community champions have had little or no planning training when they begin. What they do have is a strong commitment to their community well-being, a willingness to learn, to listen and to get out into the community to start talking with their community members.

A Community Project Planning Champion will often introduce the idea of the project planning to the community and leadership and can drive the process, gain support and help build a strong community planning team. A community planning champion can be any community member. They may come forward as a result of a trigger in the community — issues such as proposed land development, a move into the treaty process or a crisis that gets people talking to resolve community issues and address pressing community concerns. Your community planning champion needs to be based in the community, respected by community members and prepared for a long-term commitment to the project planning process.

“Every First Nation and or Inuit community has many untapped, very talented individual community champions within”

Waste management is all about how to dispose of all the things you don’t want. Where most think Waste Management – FNG is thinking Sustainable Materials Management.

 

First Nation Growers believe everyone has the right to live and work in a clean environment. Because of remoteness and in some cases low incomes, many indigenous communities feel they have none to limited options to safely and securely improving their waste management and collection methods. FNG Community Garden Farming Co-op Facilities through our commitment to each project sustainable materials management practices bring improvements to the health of the communities that we work within and the creation of a safer healthier place to live and work. Ultimately, the goal of our FNG recycling program is to maximize the recyclability of our community garden farming materials.

 

Affluent societies often see it plainly as garbage or an environmental problem, but in many communities, waste can be an essential and flexible source of income and can provide raw material to many sectors of the economy. One of our FNG goals is to remain technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment through providing innovative project technologies in waste management resources. We will ensure our project will be available to each First Nation and or Inuit community that we work with across Canada, creating a cohesive relationship between community, environment and each 4seasons garden farming co-op facility.

 

Composting is a basic FNG sustainable waste management practice that converts any volume of accumulated organic waste into a usable product. Organic wastes are broken down by microorganisms in a heat-generating environment. This process will reduce the waste volume, along with destroying harmful organisms, and create a marketable product in the process. Composting is a process by which organic wastes are broken down by microorganisms, generally bacteria and fungi, into simpler forms. These microorganisms use the carbon in the bi-product as an energy source. The degradation of the nitrogen-containing materials results in a much more uniform product creating a soil amendment that FNG makes use of in our vertical grow rooms. Advantages of composting include reduction of waste volume, elimination of heat-killed pests, and the generation of beneficial and marketable materials. Adding compost to soil increases organic matter content, in turn, improves many soil characteristics and allows for the slow release of nutrients for crop use for subsequent years.

 

Recycling and waste management is an implemented resource management system, not a waste management system. Today the approach that is considered a “best practice” is to view recyclables as commodities managed under a resource management system consistent with management frameworks such as “sustainable materials management” and “zero waste.”

 

FNG takes a collaborative approach. Community-Private Partnerships for service delivery is one of the proven strategies for resource management planning. The primary objective of the program is to promote sustainable, self-supporting partnerships between each Community Garden Farm Co-op Facility and local indigenous governments to support the formation and operation of new enterprise-community co-operation in solid waste management and recycling systems. The primary goal of the FNG Sustainable Materials Management program is to stimulate community co-operation and minimize adverse effects of waste in indigenous communities and improve the lives and livelihoods of Canada’s 1st peoples and the indigenous communities that we work with and in.

 

 

FNG is committed to supporting our indigenous brothers and sisters and their communities across the country that certainly includes putting mother earth first. We are firm believers in the concept of 7 generations. As a First Nation organization, we understand that we are merely caretakers of this land for those that follow. When we engage a project we continually ask ourselves, “What will the impact of this project be to mother earth and those that follow for seven generations?”

 

At FNG we continually engage emerging technology with the goal of remaining technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment and our First Nation/Inuit partners. We include renewable energy resources for both ‘community-owned’ projects and other third-party-owned facilities, whose power-source can be shared by the entire community through a comprehensive pre-planning process. “Renewable energies” is an important concept severe worth consideration to every town and each FNG project.

 

We work in partnership with local indigenous communities and technology innovators to help the poorest and most marginalized communities set up efficient and renewable energy community and facility resources. This form of partnership allows us to assist in meeting the real needs of each community with innovative technologies. We then make this technology available to every First Nation and Inuit community that we work with across Canada, creating a cohesive relationship between community, environment and our 4seasons garden farming Co-op facilities.

 

The primary purpose of an FNG SHARED SOLAR POWERED FACILITY is to allow members of a community the opportunity to benefit from the use of solar power even if they cannot or prefer not to install solar panels for themselves. Partner communities benefit from the electricity surplus generated by the solar powered community garden farm facility, which can cost significantly less than the price they would ordinarily pay to their utility or fuel provider.

 

There are many reasons why a community would go solar, but improving the environment, cutting energy costs and taking control of their own communities’ future are the most common. Many are aware that solar is a crucial factor in regaining control of their population growth, a significant community efficiency upgrade and a significant factor in reducing energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint.

 

Whether you’re a remote indigenous community, a homeowner, business, or non-profit, electricity and diesel fuel costs can make up a significant portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate power for your system’s entire lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility, electrical, and or diesel fuel costs and you’ll still save a lot of money doing so.

 

Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, defraying the outbound costs of a community, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments such stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity savings, the average Canadian pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more over the lifecycle of the system. One of the most apparent cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices.

 

Solar energy also delivers environmental benefits. Many homeowners, businesses, and non-profits go solar because they are focused on minimizing environmental issues like climate change and health problems related to carbon emissions. The electricity that solar panels produce is entirely emission-free. When you use renewable solar energy to meet your energy needs, you reduce the demand for electricity and or diesel fuel consumption from your utility. As a result, your utility plant emits less carbon when producing the power needed to meet demand. Depending on the resources that your service uses to provide energy — many are still reliant fossil fuels like electricity, diesel fuel, and coal—the impact of your decision to go solar significantly favors mother earth and our environment.

 

Most locations in Canada get enough sunlight to produce sufficient electricity from solar panels. The most important factors to consider when you evaluate your solar panel options are the rates you pay for electricity and or diesel fuel and the rebates and incentives available to you. Our FNG solar-powered community garden farming facilities with the right planning can generate enough power to meet your community utility needs.

Growing today, for a healthier tomorrow!

FNG Environmental Friendly Power Generation

FNG is committed to supporting our indigenous brothers and sisters, and their communities and that most certainly includes putting Mother Earth first. Our goal is to remain technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment for 7 Generations. Electrical power generation and consumption efficiencies are significant to every individual 4seasons community garden farm project.

Generated electricity is immediately consumed as it is produced. Because a generator needs to operate at variable output levels, it will not always be able to run within its most efficient range. In remote commercial operations and living communities, where there is no access to the grid, and the primary source of electricity is a fuel-based generator, the effects of immediate consumption are ever more prevalent.

Energy costs are directly proportional to the delivery charges, storing, and burning fuels.

However, when critical infrastructure relies on generators, efficiency isn’t necessarily top of mind. Stored energy shifts the paradigm from immediate consumption to stored energy. By saving energy, a generator does not need to operate 24/7 at variable output levels and can instead run for fewer hours at much higher efficiencies.

Similarly, with other renewable sources such as solar PV, a solar array can output maximum power where excess energy is stored during the day and consumed in the evenings. Stored energy shifts the paradigm from immediate consumption to stored energy, thus saving diesel fuel delivery, warehousing, and burning costs, along with putting the environment first.

FNG 4seasons Community Garden Farms address the energy needs of each indigenous community across Canada regardless of location and or isolated remoteness. Our Containerized Universal Battery platform allows for the integration of energy storage into any remote grid, micro-grid, or behind the meter application, and allows for the control of multiple power flows, increasing overall efficiency and reducing community energy cost.

FNG is committed to supporting our indigenous brothers and sisters, and their communities and that most certainly includes putting the environment first. Our goal is to remain technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment including sustainable water treatment for 7 Generations. Clean Water is most important to each 4seasons Community Garden Farming Co-op project.

 

We work in partnership with local indigenous communities to help the poorest and most marginalized communities set up practical and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene natural water treatment projects. They must meet their real needs, and service each Community Garden Farm Co-op Facility with the very same innovative water treatment technologies that we make available to every First Nation and or Inuit community that we work with across Canada to create a working relationship between each 4seasons Garden Farming Co-op facility, the city, and environment.

 

First Nation Growers community water projects include four vital and inter-related components, which combined help to maximize health and development benefits. Clean water, basic sanitation, hygiene education and natural foods farming are the ABCDs of project development—the building blocks toward a better future for every community, making water fit for both community garden farming and human consumption.

 

FNG uses practical, locally appropriate, cost-effective, new, and innovative water treatment technologies so to ensure that operational maintenance requirements for the new water supply and sanitation facilities can be quickly learned and adopted by each local indigenous community regardless of geographical location. All aspects of First Nation Growers Community Garden Farm Co-op projects are designed and implemented with long-term sustainability in mind. Upon completion of each project, community members equipped with all the tools and knowledge required to manage and maintain their water treatment and new-age community garden facility.

 

FIRST NATION GROWERS Community Garden Farm Co-op’s address the water treatment needs of every community project across Canada regardless of location and or isolated remoteness. The FNG Water treatment platform allows for the integration of clean water supply into any remote indigenous and or Inuit community Canada broad and provides for the control of multiple tower flows, increasing overall efficiency and access to a clean, natural water supply for every 4seasons Community Garden Farm.

Our community residential or commercial, financially viable, innovative, fully automated, year round, 24/7 growth recorded and monitored, daily and historically, pesticide-herbicide free, environmentally friendly, natural, indoor, cold climate, fresh foods garden farm system is the solution. FNG will provide each First Nation and Inuit community with a business opportunity that creates jobs while improving community health and well-being. FNG will add an Indoor 4seasons Community Garden Farm initiative in communities that have a want and or need to produce their own fresh produce greens, vegetables, fruit, and other indigenous herbs and or traditional medicines that address their own community year-round 4seasons nutritional needs.

First Nations, and Inuit communities and all indigenous peoples have a right to eat healthy, fresh produce, year-round, regardless of their geographical locations at prices all members can afford.

Our climate controlled indoor growing technology has come of age and is very well suited for First Nations and Inuit communities.

Our fully automated, year- round, environmentally friendly, cold climate, 24/7 growth recorded, pesticide and herbicide free, indoor natural fresh foods garden farm system for every climate, including unfriendly, time limited growth environments will address the needs of both quality fresh produce, and the current high costs of natural, fresh produce currently provided to First Nations and Inuit communities.

Just as importantly, FNG will provide First Nation and Inuit communities with immediate, year round, additional nutrition streams as well as ongoing training and education through our facility and on-line workshop seminars, including hands on growing of fresh produce greens & vegetables.

FNG training and education workshop seminars will include nutritionally based dietary guidance, along with in-house fresh produce kitchen cooking workshops with fresh foods.

Our affordable, community viable, Fresh Foods Garden Farm System will also create welcomed First Nation and Inuit community employment opportunities for and from within each participating community. FNG provides a business opportunity that adds a Community Fresh Foods Produce Garden Market initiative to communities that have a need or want to produce their own nutritionally rich fresh produce, vegetables, fruit, and other Indigenous herbs and or traditional medicines, creating an opportunity to address individual community dietary needs and economics.

Our vision is to put health, quality nutrition, and economic control back into the hands of our First Nations and Inuit communities while eliminating exorbitantly high priced and to often sub-par quality associated with the delivery of year-round produce, vegetables, fruit, herbs and other fresh foods that currently exist today in too many First Nations and Inuit communities across Canada.

First Nation Growers (FNG) promotes the improved wellbeing and general health of all peoples through invoking the United Nations’ reaffirmation of the inherent rights of indigenous peoples and other non-native Canadians to include the personal use of traditional sacred medicines including medicinal cannabis products in their lifestyle.

FNG is committed to becoming an indigenous leader in the whole natural food and herbal industry. We strive to remain at the forefront of our native profession by adopting the latest technology and innovations available and through the education of both our staff and all consumers. With our ongoing efforts to improve the well-being and general health status of all peoples, we will adhere to well designed operating procedures and quality control measures supervised by a dedicated team of professionals and qualified staff. Emphasis will be on providing high-quality products at affordable costs coupled with excellent service and customer education and awareness. Possible outcomes include creating employment with a purpose and a noble goal to enrich lives and livelihoods and provide self-directed development of a self-sustaining community garden farming market with enhanced profitability in selling surplus produce.

A shared goal of the First Nation Growers is to help eradicate the abuse of opiates including the potent and deadly methadone, fentanyl and oxycodone and the many other harmful mainstream prescription drugs including toxic household chemicals that have created a health crisis in far too many Canadian communities today. The judicious and informed use of appropriate quantities of medical cannabis can alleviate suffering, improve outlooks and decrease opioid dependency. Preserving the knowledge and wisdom that encircles the traditional cultivation, collection, and administration of traditional medicines and herbs is as essential as ending suffering and bringing natural relief to the people in all communities.

It may take some time for the traditional “Master Grower” to adapt to this innovative new age way to grow fresh produce, natural foods and traditional herbs that include medical cannabis. “Master Growers” have typically grown in their own and often successful but very “traditional” manners over the years, primarily using their own established grow methods without stepping out into our “new age rotary hydroponic grow box.”

Our Rotary Gro-Towers are proudly built by a Canadian Manufacturing Company that has quietly become the world leader in the fresh foods indoor agricultural industry. Using their proprietary automated rotary hydroponics system, growing natural, fresh produce, herbs, and medicines are possible all year round, in the cold, dry or hot climate conditions. We have a dedicated Project Support Division working closely with First Nation Growers to provide guidance and support in the development of the indigenous indoor agriculture techniques and expertise to ensure a successful experience for First Nation and Inuit communities throughout North America.

First Nation Growers Fresh Foods Garden Farm Systems are a perfect way to ensure that there is ongoing, consistent access to year-round, fresh produce greens. This system saves money on costly, natural, pesticide and herbicide free, fresh produce greens, vegetables, fruit, herbs and other indigenous traditional medicines.

First Nation Growers Fresh Foods Garden Farm Systems are a perfect way to circumvent the high costs of grocery store shopping or provide products for your local community garden farmer’s market. The systems cater to vegetarians and concerned healthy fresh produce customers. The Garden Farm System is perfect and affordable for both large commercial community garden farms and or smaller residential use, where each system can be tailored to meet individual and or your community needs.

FNG Garden Fresh Foods Farm Systems are each capable of producing over 1,000 plants per month at a fraction of the energy cost of a typical greenhouse and or farms. Each unit provides the equivalent fresh produce of 1 acre of land at a portion of the time and costs of a traditional outdoor farm.

Natural, tasty, nutritionally rich, fresh produce, vegetables, fruit and or herbs can often be on your plate the very same day you harvest and can produce many more fresh produce greens than you can imagine.

Fresh Produce Cost Example

Freshly grown produce will be available within the community at a fraction of the cost that indigenous and Inuit families are being asked to pay for today.

For example, one head of lettuce shipped today to a remote community, frankly is not fresh and may be as old as 7 to 12 shipping days alone and carries a cost from $15.00 to $25.00 per head of lettuce. The same head of lettuce is grown within the community by local members for less than $1.25 per head of lettuce in production costs, regardless of indigenous and Inuit community remoteness, “year round.”

Fresh Produce Examples with Project Monthly Quantities (Approximate)

Kale – 45 pounds per month Strawberry – 110-150 pounds per month

Yellow Beans – 55 pounds per month Green Beans – 60 pounds per month

Chives – 600 bunches a month Oregano – 7 pounds every six weeks

Basil – 60-100 pounds a month based on what type of basil Rosemary – 65 pounds per month

(Dwarf) Dill – 240 plants/machine per month. Coriander/Cilantro – 1 pd per month

Kohl Rabi – 65 pounds per month Thyme – 25 pounds per month

Mint – 100 pounds per crop Spinach – 100 pounds per month

Garlic – 2 – 4 pounds a month Parsley – 80 pounds a month

Lettuce – 180 heads of lettuce per crop Tomatoes – 100 pounds a month

Green/Yellow/Red Peppers – 800 peppers per crop Jalapeños – 5000 peppers per crop

Green onions – 100 pounds per crop Swiss chard – 180 heads per crop

Radicchio – 180 plants per 2 months

Through our state of the art growing technologies, and our partnership with Turtle Island Holistic Medicines we hope to one day eradicate the abuse of opiates, methadone, fentanyl and the many other harmful mainstream prescription drugs including toxic household chemicals that have created a health crisis in far too many Canadian communities.

 

First Nation Growers is committed to becoming an indigenous leader within the industry, remaining at the forefront of our native profession through the latest technology, innovations and the education of both our staff and clientele. Our effort to improve the well-being and general health of oneself within the execution of strictly adhered to company policies, supervised by a dedicated team of professionals, emphasizing quality products, excellent service and client customer education and awareness.

 

We are happy to provide our full support to promote community first new found and or improved indigenous economic development opportunities in creating newfound indigenous employment, along with training and education for First Nation members from within their respective home communities.

 

We feel our pursuit to improve the holistic wellbeing of oneself through innovative, and technologically advanced tools will produce enhanced community nutritional streams and sacred medicines.  Through our advanced agricultural rotary hydroponics, growing year-round fresh produce and other natural foods create economic opportunities and community member jobs through newfound own source revenues. Thus invoking the United Nations reaffirmation of our inherent indigenous rights to include the personal use of traditional and or sacred medicines which provides for both medical and recreation Indigenous medicines products including derivatives thereof for the improved holistic health and well-being of oneself is long overdue.

 

It is our FNG mission to enhance & contribute to the betterment of the indigenous community through advancing indigenous holistic health and the well-being of oneself.  Our effort to pursue innovative indoor agricultural development of fresh produce, natural foods as well as traditional medicines that include medical and recreational Indigenous Medicines and or the derivatives thereof, using Canada’s ACMPR Rules & Regulations as our guideline as we reach back into our history.

Indigenous, Inuit and other more remote Canadian First Nation and non-Native communities are deprived of year-round, fresh produce. In turn, each of their communities is suffering a lack of natural, healthy, and affordable daily nutrition because of consistently poor, below average product delivered to their communities at unfair prices. The results are produce that is too often of the most mediocre quality, and extortionately high priced.

 

First Nation, Inuit, and our more remote non-Native Canadian communities are hungry for new and better, year-round, quality, nutritionally rich produce. FNG enables indigenous communities to grow produce that enhance the day-to-day health of individual communities and their members and their member’s children. In creating their own, fresh, natural, healthy, and appropriately priced fresh produce, vegetables, fruit and herbs for their community members and their children, enhancing year-round health from and within their indigenous communities.

 

No other company that we are aware of to date has offered these communities, our brothers and sisters, an alternative, nutritionally abundant, affordable, year-round community solution. First Nation Growers LP. will take this problem on, head on, addressing community needs with custom, cold climate designed, year-round, indoor community garden farms.

 

FNG provides an attractive, affordable, viable, environmentally friendly, cold climate growing solution for every community, including our most remote sub-zero, geographical unfriendly, growth restricted environments.

 

The consistency of fresh produce in First Nation and Inuit communities throughout Canada is almost non-existent regarding quality, and too often ridiculously high priced, adversely affecting the day-to-day good health and well-being of far too many First Nation and Inuit communities, theirmembers and their member’s children.

 

An underlying issue and concern is the reluctance to change current food-based values of our First Nation and Inuit communities. The current lack of effort to provide communities with nutritional education and year-round, affordable, quality, fresh produce causes a profuse lack of nutrition in indigenous peoples daily diets.

 

Nutrition and health concerns will be addressed by providing current information, education and easy access to ensure the availability of year-round quality, fresh produce. First Nation Growers LP.is addressing essential nutritional day-to-day needs of every First Nation and Inuit community, regardless of geographical, year round, cold climate locations.

FNG begins each project by consulting continually with our clients. We ensure that we understand not just the surface needs which make our product so valuable for our First Nation and Inuit partners; we also take a hard look at the community and location as a whole. This philosophy allows us to understand the unique challenges that each project and community face. We then begin the development process by attempting to address each problem facing a particular projects successful delivery.

An integral aspect of delivering FNG facilities to our partner communities is our Project Development Team. Following the model of FNG’s fundamental beliefs in providing First Nations/Inuit solutions to indigenous issues, we partner with a First Nations Project Development Company called Wiidookaw. Wiidookaw is a new First Nation owned and operated company that brings many years and many projects worth of expertise to the delivery of our facilities. Wiidookaw has a shared goal and belief in ensuring that each project delivers the maximum benefit possible to our First Nation and Inuit partners and clients, through:

  • Assessing each project as a distinct opportunity.
  • Bringing custom personalized solutions to bear on these different opportunities.
  • Ensuring that, where possible First Nation companies are engaged in all aspects of the delivery of the facility.
  • Project Conceptual stage (First Nation Architects or those willing to further First Nation skill development).
  • Needs assessment stage (First Nation ground trothing companies and individuals).
  • Project Planning stage (First Nation Architects or those willing to further First Nation skill development and significant First Nation Trade Contractors).
  • Research and development stage (First Nation Architects or those willing to advance First Nation skill development).
  • Design development (First Nation Architects or those willing to further First Nation skill development).
  • Construction (engagement of local or non-local First Nation Trade Contractors, Sub-Contractors, local skilled and unskilled labour forces, and bolstering and developing First Nation Entrepreneurs).
  • Commissioning (engagement of local or non-local First Nation Trade Contractors, Sub-Contractors, local skilled and unskilled labour forces, and bolstering and developing First Nation Entrepreneurs).
  • Engaging new and emerging technologies, to bring efficient and economical solutions to each project.
  • Applying past experiences and knowledge to projects were appropriate and effective.
  • Networking and connecting with Expertise throughout the industry to assist in solving project and general problems with new age solutions.

Each FNG facility takes all aspects of community needs, resources, and skills planned and assessed into account in the project process. Not only do we analyze the right needs of our facilities such as food production and supply needs to support that production. We also review our First Nations and Inuit partner’s existing infrastructure and resources to assist us in ensuring that our production can avoid drawing on already scarce resources such as power and water. Finally, in our review of our client’s funds, we can assist in bringing new technology and innovation to bear in expanding our First Nations/Inuit resources to help ensure a truly sustainable and long-term partnership.

Finally, each project and each community we partner with becomes an integral part of our FNG Network. We remain in touch; we make ourselves available and ensure that we stay a valued asset to our partners through our pre-care-after-care program. We continually seek opportunity for all of our partners to expand their successes and allow them to become a catalyst for success in their neighbouring communities. FNG and Wiidookaw believe that each successful project partnership becomes a thread in the tapestry of our story.

Creating an FNG Community Garden Farm Co-op facility is an intricate and detailed process. Many various components must come together to build a smoothly operating and long-lasting building and facility. FNG and its project development team, Wiidookaw, follow a detailed and comprehensive process to ensure that from inception the planning of each facility is complete, clear and entirely documented through detailed construction design drawings.

At the inception of a project, we consider all the variables including, client wants & needs, community planning, resource availability, skilled and unskilled labour access, geography, and many other factors in creating a preliminary design that attempts to address these challenges and opportunities. We utilize the initial plan to create an outline of the project, a “napkin sketch” showing the major needs and considerations. We then take this “napkin sketch” back to our project partners for review, comment and revision. At this stage we are trying to ensure that we consider all the high-level needs of the project, including the following:

  • Overall Building Size
  • Major components of the facility
  • What are the inside requirements, the space needs of the facility to satisfy the primary objectives of the project
  • Are there issues that may make specific materials or methods of construction inefficient or wasteful of limited resources?
  • Time constraints
  • Geographical constraints
  • Resource or skills restraints·
  • Beneficial opportunities incorporated into the project

Once the development team has created this “napkin sketch” we start to define our space and what needs to be in our building, including what types of construction will work to meet the requirements of the preliminary plan. At this point, we take back all of the information we have gathered such as comments, revisions, feedback and create a 30% complete set of construction drawings. These drawings contain many of the details, shapes, and sizes of the end facility, but still, lack sufficient information to allow construction to proceed. These drawings are taken back to the project table to be reviewed, commented on and critiqued.

At this stage, we have an excellent idea of the final shape of our facility, but we still need to finalize the last vital items to allow us to create final construction drawings. We incorporate the comments and information from all the previous stages into our drawings and produce a 60% complete set of blueprints. These drawings are fully dimensioned, with general notes and critical details incorporated. All construction methods and materials used in the final facility have been selected and included in these drawings. Once again, we take these drawings back to the project team and vet one last time.

Created now are the final set of 90% documents. Like the previous stage, these drawings contain all the necessary dimensions required to build the facility. They also provide all prior stage materials and methods. This stage is the final time the drawings are taken back to the project team for final vetting. During this stage, we ask all project participants to make last comments and give final approvals to the design. Once all of these stages are complete, the Project Development team takes these drawings and completes a final review of all blueprints. We also conclude a last coordination review of the drawings and ensure that lines, dimensions, and sizes are fully coordinated to ensure that our facility is ready to be built.

FNG and Wiidookaw believe that this process, fully coordinated and comprehensive as it is, is the best way to ensure that the project drawings and documents are sufficient to allow the smooth and efficient construction of each & every facility.

Project Pre-Care After-Care Programming

Project Pre-Care & After-Care Programming is a very serious component of every FNG Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility and most important to contributing to the continued successes of each project. Our Pre-Care & After-Care Program also allows our First Nation and or Inuit Community Fresh Foods Garden Farming Co-op growers access to our 365/24/7 fully automated control monitoring system for cold or hot climate, natural, indoor growing, exclusive only to our FNG partnership.

All facets of growth environments and production are monitored and recorded throughout each growth cycle, 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, with built-in alerts when growth parameters are outside of preset configurable settings. You are never alone in monitoring growth or production with an electronic, technical growth chart kept on hand and available for historical reference of each growth cycle for each product of each unit at any given time.

Our automated control system monitors every aspect of growth and operation, providing immediate, automatic alerts when growth parameters are outside of pre-configured settings. There is monitoring of cold climate or hot climate indoor room temperatures, humidity, Co2 levels, PH and TDS levels and other garden farm parameters set for water temperatures for each grow unit. This monitoring maintains the highest standard of quality, grow cycle high yields and security. Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility grows cycles are both monitored in-house, and through FNG Head Office Project Monitoring Services to ensure added project continued successes.

FNG intends to provide the best possible important, and most easily accessible informative project training, education, and development workshop seminars for each Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility project, creating added value for each community partner grower. A big part of our fresh produce education component will be the combined on-line webinars made available to each community member. We discuss the value of added nutrition to diets, cooking with fresh produce greens and why including healthy eating and foods benefit one today for tomorrow, where raw produce consumption feeds our bodies and the ongoing long-term benefits of good health.

Our pre-care & after-care project programming includes employee industry project training, workshop, and education seminar follow-up that will be mandatory to ensure project, customer client, and employee satisfaction, knowledge and continued successes. FIRST NATION GROWERS intends to support the continued success of each of our First Nations and Inuit Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility partner communities by providing pre-startup and semi-annual Head Office Facility visits that include essential informative training and industry education workshop seminars. Each employee and manager, as an integral component of our continued support for the ongoing successes of each, community growing project will be privy to quick and easy accessible industry education, knowledge, and growing understanding through innovative training, and staff development and education workshop seminars, both on-site and online.

FNG has a unique wholesale business relationship with national, industry supplier and distributor, Homegrown Hydroponics, an experienced Canadian industry leader with hydroponic supplies and distributing networks operating worldwide that we pass along to each community grow partner. FNG also has a standing working agreement with John’s Fruits, a North American Fresh Produce, Natural Foods and Fruit industry distributor leader providing fresh foods.  John’s Fruits will purchase all produce not used locally at wholesale prices and sell back items not grown in-house also at wholesale prices.

Attaining sustainable improvements in Indigenous employment begins with a promise. Companies with successful Indigenous employment strategies have an executive leadership team that has publicly committed to improving Indigenous employment outcomes and backs this commitment by providing adequate financial and human resources. Companies communicate their commitment to staff, contractors, suppliers and shareholders through statements, policies, strategies, and reconciliation action plans.

FIRST NATION GROWERS LP. intends to support the continuous successes of each of our First Nations and Inuit Community Garden Farming Co-op projects and partner communities by providing pre start-up and semi-annual Head Office Facility visits that include educational training and industry education workshop seminars.

Each employee and manager, as an essential component of our continued support for the ongoing success of each, fresh produce community grow project will be privy to quick and easy accessible industry education, knowledge, and growing understanding through innovative training, and staff development workshop seminars, both on-site and online.

We stand behind our equipment 100% concerning warranty and operational guarantees. We believe that it is as equally important to get behind our people in providing pre start-up and semi-annual employee industry training, education, and development workshop seminars to ensure the successes and longevity of each First Nation Indigenous Community Garden Farm Co-op System projects, regardless of size or remoteness regarding location, Canada-wide.

FNG will provide 24/7/365 support and is both privy and sensitive to Indigenous concerns, incomes, and issues, where we intend to create and nurture a healthy, creative, respectful and enjoyable office and plant facility environment.

FNG intends to provide the best possible relevant and easily accessible project training, education, and development workshops and seminars for each First Nation Growers Inc. Fresh Foods Garden Farm Co-op community project, creating added value for each community partner grower.

A big part of our fresh produce education component will be the added on-line webinars made available to each community member. We discuss the value of combined nutrition to our diets, cooking with fresh produce greens and why including healthy eating and foods benefit one today for tomorrow, that raw produce consumption provides our bodies and the ongoing long-term benefits of good health.

Besides, employee project industry training, workshop, and education seminar follow-up will be mandatory to ensure project, customer client, and employee satisfaction, knowledge and operational successes.

It will be essential to include a component of each project business plan that at least a 3-year budget and forecast, for both responsible business practices and decision making as well as initial funding applicant possibilities.

Efficiently managing your business’ finances is critical to project long-term successes. Good budgeting and financial forecasting skills can help you control the financial health of your business. A budget is a detailed statement of expected revenues and expenses. Your income will include revenues from sales, interest, accounts receivable, and any other revenue sources. Your expenses will include costs such as your payroll, inventory, and insurance. Budgets are often based on an organization’s fiscal year and then broken down by month. Reviewing your budget on a regular basis and adjusting it as needed, will help you keep an accurate picture of your finances.

Developing good budgeting skills from the business get-go can help you:

Forecast future revenues and expenses • Identify opportunities for cost-cutting

Find opportunities to be more efficient and productive

Ensure you have enough cash on hand to cover upcoming costs Determine a break-even point

Your budget needs to be based on realistic figures and assumptions to be effective, Developing a sales forecast can help you build a comprehensive budget.

Accurately forecasting future sales is a crucial part of creating a stable budget. Forecasting is not an exact science, but basing your figures on past purchases and well-researched assumptions can help you realistically predict future performance. When you are developing your forecast, you will want to look at:

Previous sales figures are broken down by month

No renewals for new sales contracts and contracts that will

Predictions for changes in the size of your market or the economy as a whole

If you are a new business, you will need to conduct market research and analyze the sales of similar companies in your area.

Forecasting can help you:

Make strategic decisions such as when to introduce a new product

Identify the best time of year for you and your employees to take a vacation

Calculate how profitable the boom time must be for the business to survive a slump

Financing is essential to starting or growing a business. A substantial budget tells investors or lenders that you have a well-thought-out strategy and plan. A reasonable forecast shows them that you have researched your business strategies and are aware of the pitfalls and how to deal with them.

If you want your business to be successful, you will need to develop proper budgeting and forecasting skills, or work with a professional whom has those skills.

Once community assessment and readiness are determined, and Chief & Band Council has given a favourable & supporting green light to an FNG Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility proposal, we work directly with you and your Community Champion to begin to develop an in-depth project business plan. A very detailed written document that describes the proposed Community Garden Farming Co-op business in great detail, its objectives and strategies, the market you are targeting, that also includes your financial forecasts. It is essential to have a business plan because it helps you understand your market, set realistic goals, secure external funding when needed, measure your successes, clarify operational requirements and establish reasonable multi-year financial forecasts. Adequately preparing your business plan will also help you focus on how to operate an FNG Community Garden Farming Co-op Facility to its maximum, giving you and your new community business the best chance for continued annual successes.

Securing financial assistance to start your new business will be directly related to the strength of your business plan. To be considered a viable candidate to receive funds from a financial institution or investors, you must demonstrate that you understand every aspect of your business, and its ability to generate profit. A business plan is more than just something to show lenders and investors; it is also necessary to help you plan for the growth and progress of your business. Your business’s success can depend on your plans for the future. Listed below are examples of questions to ask yourself when writing your business plan:

  • How will I generate a profit? • How will I run the business if sales are low or if profits are down?
  • Who is my competition, and how will we coexist? • Who is my target market?

Although business plans can vary in length and scope, all successful business plans contain common elements. Every business plan: should include the following points:

  • Executive summary (business description) • Identifying your business opportunity  Marketing and sales strategy of a business plan
  • Your team • Operations
  • Financial forecasts of a business plan (3 years)

The executive summary is an overview of the main points in your business plan and is often considered the most critical section. It is positioned at the front of the program and is usually the first section that a potential investor or lender will read. Although the executive summary is the first section of the plan, it is a good idea to write it last; after the other parts of the project have been finalized. The summary should:

  • Include the main points from each of the other sections to explain the basics of your business
  • Be sufficiently compelling to motivate the reader to continue reading the rest of your business plan
  • Be brief and concise – no more than two pages long

We will need to identify your business opportunity. In this section of your business plan, we will describe what your business is about, its products and services, and your ideas for the company.

This section usually includes:

  • Who you are • What you do • What you have to offer              • What market you want to target

Marketing and sales strategy of a business plan are also essential element of a healthy business plan  including a section that describes specific activities that you will use to promote and sell your products or services. A strong sales and marketing section demonstrates that you have a clear idea of how you will get your product or service into the market.

First Nation governments have challenges accessing capital for indigenous infrastructure and economic development projects, such as Indoor Green House projects, community power, water and waste projects included, primarily because First Nation lands cannot typically qualify as project security.

First Nation Growers is making a concerted effort to find newfound indigenous project funding resources to create sustainable First Nation and or Inuit owned and operated environmentally friendly, industry-leading rotary hydroponic, 4seasons cold climate, Garden Farming Community Co-op Markets. Where funding applied to the facility and operation start-up costs, including ownership contributions, agency grants, and loans both at the Federal and Provincial levels of Government, augmented by both third-party private individual funding resources and through third-party public-private partnerships.

Many Aboriginal entrepreneurs and communities can qualify for added business development support. Depending on the nature of the project, First Nation and or Inuit communities and indigenous projects may be able to obtain funding to assist with a wide range of activities that may include:

Business planning & Business expansions

Establishment (capital) costs

Marketing initiatives that are local, domestic, or export-oriented

New product or process development

Adding technology to improve operations and competitiveness

Operating costs in association with capital costs

Financial services, business support, business-related training, and mentoring services

In all of the community projects and activities that First Nation Growers adventure in, our key components are respect for the environment, sound management, self-sufficiency, and sustainable prosperity for every indigenous community we work within each 4seasons Garden Farming Community Co-op Facility.

First Nation Growers works with Aboriginal entrepreneurs and indigenous community partners to provide a range of services and supports that promote the growth of a healthy, sustainable, self-sufficient indigenous business and community. Support will vary depending on the needs of each community, the readiness of each city, availability, and sources of funding, the eligibility of costs, the economic benefits, and project viability.

First Nation Growers place great importance on partnerships as a path to respect for the environment, culture, self-sufficiency, and sustainable prosperity through sound business and management practices. In the long-term, each project will help lead our indigenous community partners to financial independence and provide returns in the hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in support of their community members. Through new creative approaches to indigenous community project funding opportunities, First Nation Growers can help Aboriginal entrepreneurs, and indigenous communities achieve their business goals. That includes improving access to project financing, project sustainability, environmentally friendly management, job-creating innovation, employment training and development and project productivity as we aspire to help each community growing partner that we work with becoming self-sufficient and financially independent. The net profits of each project will provide each community with the resources needed to stimulate economic growth within each community and build a better future for indigenous children through “new” year-round fresh, nutritional streams.

The very first step of every FNG Community Garden Farming Facility is to Assess Community Readiness. Are your members ready to start the comprehensive project planning process? Before taking the first steps, the community needs to assess whether or not it is capable of going through the planning process at this time. Are the necessary people, capacity, and resources available? Community readiness includes support for the process by community and leadership.

If your community is ready to go ahead, you may wish to ask Council to endorse the planning process through a Band Council Resolution or similar mechanism. From the beginning, it is important to build understanding and support by sharing information with the community and leadership. If the planning process is postponed, for now, you may want to consider developing a plan of action for getting the people ready for a future time. Funding throughout the planning process is needed. Pre-planning is the time to figure out a budget for the whole process and identify potential sources of funding. What are these funding used for then? They may be needed to support a planning coordinator and trainee, for technical support, for holding community meetings, for writing and copying information updates, or for a variety of other activities that your community project planning committee determines will need financial support during the project planning process.

You may wish to draft a Terms of Reference for your planning team. This document summarizes the guiding principles of the planning team including the purpose and scope of the planning process, how you will engage community members, what timeframe you are considering, and roles and responsibilities. Research can help you understand how to make the planning process relevant to your community. Comprehensive community project planning is unique to each situation. Your community may already have plans and research sitting on the shelves from previous projects. The information in these documents will give you and your CCPP team an excellent starting point for your work. Historical records, land use maps, and previously identified goals and priorities all feed into the CCPP process. Based on information discovered during the research step, the project planning team will outline a comprehensive planning process for the community project.

Pre-planning is the time to assess whether the community is ready to start planning, inform the people and its leaders about the planning process, gain their support and prepare the groundwork for an open, inclusive and efficient planning process. By the end of the pre-planning stage, you will have a planning team and coordinator in place, a work plan to guide the planning process, and strategies to keep the community well-informed and actively engaged in the planning process. The planning process is community-driven and benefits from a variety of perspectives.  Any community member can initiate a pre-plan program, but works best if developed and supported by the majority of the people and its leaders. Encourage all members of the community to participate including Elders, youth, family heads, nation administration, chiefs and councillors as well as all community members. Each brings a unique point of view to the planning process, and their involvement ensures the consideration of each member’s needs.

Sharing information is a critical component of the pre-planning stage. People are more supportive of an idea or concept if they understand what it is proposing. Inform the general community, as well as Chief and Council, about the purpose of the planning process, its outcomes, and its steps and phases. Keeping the people up to date will help build support for the project and end goal. Share information about the planning model and process, the structure of the planning team, and ways the community can participate in the planning process. Building community support for undertaking a comprehensive community project plan could include generating feedback on the planning process through community surveys and or meetings.

The future of rotary hydroponics is here! Benefits achieved by saving at least 2/3 of your required space to produce the same yields, saving electricity, (with a 12′ table to equal the same light to plant ratio, you would need 6 HID Lamps, whereas with the 420 Model Rotary Hydroponic System you only need 4 HID Lamps. The garden is a complete plugin and grows system that includes sensors and feed system.

Each Gro-Tower is designed for electricity with adjustable diesel and solar facility operations. A Gro-Tower uses about 2.9 kW per day in total. This includes pumps, fans, sensors, feeder system, and motor (240v- 20amp 50/60 HZ). No need to build tables, wire ballasts, or acquire outside professional electrical help. Our garden towers are on wheels and can quickly move into any room or location, at any time.

It will take a little time for the traditional “Master Grower” to wrap his mind around this new age, and innovative way to grow fresh produce, natural foods, and medical marijuana. Most “Master Growers” have typically grown in their own and often successful but very “traditional” manners over the years, primarily using their own established grow methods without stepping out into our “new age rotary hydroponic grow box.”

Our state of the art, innovative, new age, Rotary Gro-Tower built proudly by a Canadian Manufacturing Company that has quietly become the global fresh foods indoor agricultural industry leader in rotary hydroponics, growing natural, fresh produce and other natural foods year round, in the cold and or hot climate conditions. We have an allocated dedicated Corporate Support Division working alongside First Nation Growers to advance Indigenous indoor Agriculture expertise, training, education, know-how, and experience to First Nation and Inuit communities throughout North America.

The FNG Community Garden Farm is a “Rotary” flood and drain system. Growing plants in a rotary hydroponic garden result in uniform growth patterns thus helping make harvesting projections and scheduling more manageable for the grower.  The compression caused by rotation results in plants with more internodes (flowering sites) and better flavor profiles. Our system significantly reduces the costs associated with conventional hydroponics including facility construction, size and maintenance costs; utility costs; atmospheric, water and nutrient costs; and pest/disease control costs. Optional software modules enable monitoring of all facets of production while maintaining the highest standards of both quality and security.

Our automated control system monitors all aspects of the Garden Farming Grow System and automatically alerts when parameters are outside of configurable parameters.  Active monitoring of Room Temperature, Humidity and CO2 levels and garden parameters for Water Temperature, Water Level, PH and TDS level. Available on our Model 420 line only, providing a single view of your entire operation with auto-correct features to ensure optimal settings at all times. Plants inserted into Rock-wool type cubes become secured in the “Quick Drain Trays.”  Placing the trays inside a motorized circular wheel allows the garden will revolve 24 hours a day around two center-fixed HID lamps. It takes approximately one hour for the trays to complete one revolution. There are two reservoirs supplied, one top and bottom. A pump placed in the bottom reservoir and is switched on, filling the top reservoir to the desired depth.  “Quick drain Trays” is then revolved through the nutrient/water mixture, feeding the plants.

Our rotary Gro-Towers system can be stacked 2 and 3 high for optimum space use, ensuring maximum space usage as well as quality quantity yields to satisfy facilities partners and investors as well as future community customers. Concerning trimming and general plant care, both are at a minimum using our Rotary Gro-Tower system, as you know, Medicinal Operations are highly regulated, where waste is both managed and controlled, where our system exudes minimal trimming and or plant care. Again, the compression resulting from the rotation occurs in plants with more internodes (flowering sites) and better flavor profiles, with less trimming giving result patterns of routinely higher yields. Our indoor rotary hydroponic system triples your returns, in the same growth period, of the same said strains, in comparison to traditional growing methods, using the same space, in the same said growth cycle time frame.

SOCIAL CONDITIONS OF ABORIGINAL & INUIT PEOPLES 

Historical inequities have left indigenous children, youth, and families without much-needed supports and services, low incomes and remote locations. Aboriginal people in Canada are our forgotten peoples deprived of their lands, their cultural traditions, and their unique way of life. Children have been removed from their families and sent away to residential schools – where many are in abusive situations – with well-documented, everlasting, inter-generational effects that many are still dealing with to this day.

 

The First Nation Growers Inc. organization is committed to improving the overall social development and well-being of indigenous and Inuit peoples.  Through strengthening daily, year-round, healthy diets and providing continual access to affordable, fresh foods in every indigenous community where possible, we will help unlock First Nation and Inuit people’s true potential toward positive social development through better health.

Aboriginal peoples refer to the original inhabitants of Canada and include Inuit, Métis and First Nation living on and off-reserve. National data on Aboriginal peoples and household food insecurity in Canada primarily come from the cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS). However, the CCHS excludes individuals living on-reserve in Canada, and thus data from these surveys do not represent the experience of on-reserve Aboriginal peoples, who constitute just over one-third of the Aboriginal peoples in Canada.

 

Studies of Aboriginal peoples repeatedly demonstrate their extraordinary vulnerability to household food insecurity. Aboriginal households in Canada are more likely than non-Aboriginal families to experience the socio-demographic risk factors associated with household food insecurity (e.g., extreme poverty, single-motherhood, living in rental accommodation, and reliance on social assistance). Even after these factors have been into account, Aboriginal households remain at a much higher risk of household food insecurity and are more likely to be severely food-insecure.

 

Researchers and practitioners in Aboriginal communities have highlighted the distinct food procurement, preparation and distribution practices among Aboriginal groups. The measure of household food insecurity used in the CCHS was developed in non-Aboriginal contexts and does not probe for information that may be important to Aboriginal peoples’ household food insecurity.

 

For example, household food insecurity is related to food procurement from both market, and traditional sources (e.g., fishing, hunting), and broader factors such as climate change and environmental pollution may be salient due to their impact on the availability of edible plants and animals found in nature. Research in the area of household food insecurity among Aboriginal peoples that is grounded in the realities of Aboriginal peoples’ culture, beliefs, and political systems is vital to the development of appropriate interventions to reduce household food insecurity among First Nation and Inuit peoples.

Indigenous, Inuit and other remote Canadian and non-native communities are being deprived of year-round, quality, fresh produce that is reasonably priced and their community members are suffering a lack of natural, day-to-day healthy nutrition. Communities consistently receive mediocrely, and below average quality produce delivered to their communities throughout the year. That is if they can even access fresh, quality produce. Produce is often extremely high priced due to factors like long-distance shipping and remote locations.

Many levels of Bureaucracy and the Government in Canada to date have ignored severe and cold climate growers from operating on a commercially viable scale, servicing our most remote First Nation and Inuit communities from within their communities.

For whatever reason, it has not been a priority, or in their best economic, or political interest to promote anything but the delivery of overpriced, sub-standard produce and other poor quality fresh vegetables and fruit products to many of our First Nation, Inuit, and other Northern Canadian communities.

No other company, which we are aware of has offered these communities, our brothers, and sisters, an alternative, nutritional, affordable, year-round community solution, as of yet.

FNG is dedicated to taking this problem on, head- on, addressing community needs with an attractive, viable, affordable, environmentally friendly, cold climate growing solution for every community, especially in our remote Canadian sub-zero, geographically unfriendly and seasonal time restricted, cold climate communities.

The quality of fresh produce in First Nation and Inuit communities throughout Canada are both almost non-existent concerning condition and priced ridiculously high. This is adversely affecting the day-to-day good health and well-being of too many First Nations and Inuit communities and their peoples. To-date, very few policymakers and companies have seemed interested in seriously addressing these everyday critical nutritional needs on behalf of Indigenous peoples.

First Nation Growers will address these crucial needs for every First Nation and Inuit community, regardless of geographical location.

 

FNG Management is a collaborated vision between two close family members that share a common goal to make a difference today for tomorrow in our First Nation and Inuit communities. Daughter Dawn Tabobondung and her mother, Joyce Tabobondung, have always shared the same vision to find ways that contribute to the betterment of all indigenous peoples. Joyce Tabobondung will serve as Corporate Vice President, also serving as Senior Indigenous Advisor. Both Ladies have impressive biographies.

 

Dawn has vast experience in business bookkeeping with an essential background in audit executed accounting. Dawn also has strong communication and trusted people skills in working both with First Nation and non-Native people and organizations.

 

Joyce Tabobondung is a well-respected Indigenous Elder and former First Nation and regional area community leader, holding the position as Chief for many years, as her mother did for so many years before her. Her son, Warren, has also followed in her footprints, sitting as the current Chief of Wasauksing First Nation. Joyce has held several key management, council, and First Nation leadership positions throughout her years and currently sits as the area Anishinabek Friendship Centre, President. There is no one better to lead the vision of First Nation Growers LP., in developing First Nation and Inuit community partnerships that will surely last for generations based on the firm vision and corporate core values of FNG.

 

Most importantly, Joyce understands the needs and wants of the Anishinabek peoples and their community concerns, including the essential nutritional well-being of First Nation and Inuit communities throughout all of Canada. FIRST NATION GROWERS LP., with a four-person executive team that includes two trusted senior industry advisors and an outside consultant working closely on our entrance into the natural, cold climate, rotary hydroponic growth industry, we are confident that we have the right start-up management pieces in place to create a secure FNG future.

 

It will be a priority of FNG to hire indigenous community members where and when we can. We are looking for talented, dedicated and committed First Nation and Inuit community members that take pride in working within their community. We know our First Nation and Inuit community members can perform the job tasks in all areas of operations.  Jobs titles will no longer be significant, as work completed through collaboration and teamwork.

Dawn will oversee the day-to-day operations of the business, with Joyce focusing on building robust First Nation and Inuit community relationships throughout Turtle Island.

Our goal is to build four-seasons, cold-climate, indoor, chemical and pesticide free structure to grow green and natural fresh produce at prices all families can afford for seven generations.  In turn, this will create creating long-term, sustainable Indigenous employment opportunities and new-found revenues from within First Nation and Inuit communities themselves.

Our vision is to strengthen opportunity to liberate First Nation and Inuit communities Canada wide through creating four seasons, fresh produce, fruits, herbs and traditional medicines. Our indoor cold-climate grow facilities will improve health, nutrition, and well-being. This creative year-round agricultural advancement will enhance Indigenous community social development within each community regardless of geographical site.

Our mission is to offer project pre-care and after-care support services to First Nation and Inuit through creative indoor community farming.  By producing nutritionally rich, natural, fresh produce, vegetables, fruits, herbs and traditional medicines; we will nutritionally enrich the lives of Indigenous communities and their members for seven generations.

Dawn Tabobondung is a proud member of Wasauksing First Nation, who, like her Grandmother before her, and Royal Order of Canada Recipient, Flora Tabobondung, has always had a strong passion for helping others, especially her fellow First Nation Members, providing support and assistance where she can when she can.

Dawn takes tremendous pride in her current position with Wasauksing First Nation, as acting Gaming Revenues Program Coordinator. Dawn finds her position often gratifying in knowing that she can help provide support and assistance to her fellow Band Members from time to time when requested, through the First Nation Gaming Revenues Program.

 

Dawn is the proud mother of three bright children, all proud members of Wasauksing First Nation, two that currently attend University, one in Ottawa, another in Halifax, with her youngest preparing to finish high school next year before attending University herself.

 

It is no secret that politics has always been a part of the Tabobondung family, where some say it flows naturally throughout the bloodlines. Dawn prides herself in following the lead of both her Grandmother and her Mother Joyce in always striving to find new ways that genuinely contribute to the betterment of her community and peoples.

 

Dawn is an Honours graduate of George Brown College, Toronto, in Office Management and Administration, with a strong background and experience in Accounting and Bookkeeping. Dawn has held previous First Nation management positions as an Economic Development Officer, Office Administrator, Office Manager and First Nations Marina Manager.

 

Dawn also played a significant management role in the Wasausink Lands Development Corporation, as Administrator, during a tough time and the restructuring of WLI, including the implementation of adding new Board Members with the understanding at the time the Corporation would better serve Wasauksing First Nation community members. During Dawns time at WLI, she was a registered Commissionaire, recognized by the Department of Indigenous Affairs.

 

Outside of her regular Band employment hours, Dawn has recently had the passion for starting a visionary, innovative, fully automated, year-round, indoor, natural, Garden Fresh Foods Farm produce growing System. This system will be a significant component of a First Nation Research and Development Training Facility. Located in her First Nation,  growing indoors, year-round fresh produce, vegetables, fruits, indigenous herbs and traditional medicines that help contribute to the betterment and well-being her First Nation members and other interested First Nation and Inuit communities across Canada.

There have been important strides made on the part of many Aboriginal communities to improve education around health issues today, but despite these improvements, Indigenous peoples remain at higher risk for illness and earlier death than non-Native people.

Chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease are on the increase. There is a definite correlation between income, social factors, diets, nutrition and health. There is a higher rate of respiratory problems and other infectious diseases among First Nation children than among non-native children, inadequate housing, and crowded living conditions as well as a lack of daily nutrition are just some of contributing factors.

The overall health of Aboriginal people has improved in recent years; however, it continues to lag behind the overall population. In 2009, the life expectancy for Canadian women was 83 years of age compared to 79 years for men. Between 1980 and 2001, life expectancy at birth for registered indigenous men increased from 60.9 to 70.4 years and for registered First nation women from 68 to 75.5 years.

Health Canada reported in 2001–2002 that the leading causes of death among registered Indigenous peoples were external causes (accidental poisoning, vehicle accidents, and intentional self-harm), diseases of the circulatory system (hypertension, cardiovascular disease), and neoplasms (various types of cancer).

Suicide rates for Aboriginal peoples in Canada have for some time been much higher than those of the general population. A 2000 study found that suicide and self-inflicted injuries were the leading causes of death for Indigenous people below 45 years of age. Suicide rates among First Nation youth are around five to six times the national average, while Inuit youth rates are approximately ten times the national average. The causes for such high rates of suicide are multiple and may include depression due to social, cultural, or generational dislocation; drug and substance abuse; lack of housing, fresh foods and nutrition, and access to opportunity.

First Nation Growers Environmental Friendly Power Generation

FNG is committed to supporting our indigenous brothers and sisters, and their communities that most certainly includes putting the environment first. Our goal is to remain technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment for 7 Generations. Electrical power generation and consumption efficiencies is very important to every individual project.

When generating electricity it is immediately consumed as soon as it is produced. Because a generator needs to operate at variable output levels it will not always be able to run within its most efficient range. In remote commercial operations and living communities, where there is no access to the grid and the main source of electricity is a fuel based generator, the effects of immediate consumption are ever more prevalent.

Energy costs are directly proportional to the cost of delivering, storing, and burning fuels.

However, when critical infrastructure relies on generators, efficiency isn’t necessarily top of mind. Stored energy shifts the paradigm from immediate consumption to stored energy. By storing energy, a generator does not need to operate 24/7 at variable output levels and can instead operate for fewer hours at much higher efficiencies.

Similarly, with renewable sources like solar PV, a solar array can output maximum power where excess energy is stored during the day and consumed in the evenings. Stored energy shifts the paradigm from immediate consumption to stored energy, thus saving diesel fuel delivery, storing and burning costs, along with putting the environment first with every FNG project.

FNG 4seasons Community Garden Farms address the energy needs of each and every indigenous community across Canada regardless of location and or isolated remoteness. Our Containerized Universal Battery platform allows for the integration of energy storage into any remote grid, micro-grid, or behind the meter application, and allows for the control of multiple power flows, increasing overall efficiency and reducing community energy costs.

A. Yes, we can share video, send you specs and layouts as well bring you for a tour where I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised, and walk away with all your questions answered, and very excited about your own possible growing opportunities.

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »9. Required Gro Tower Space »][blox_text animation= »none »]

Q. Thinking of the space needed for working around the Model 420 Rotary Hydroponic Gro Tower ? 

A. You will need 3 to 4 feet on each side of grow tower to work with, trays are easily managed from both or the side of each Gro Tower.

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »10. Potential Gro Room Labour Costs »][blox_text animation= »none »]

Q. Do you have any ideas on labour costs i.e. how many hours per day would a typical community garden farming worker need to spend caring for the plants on a daily basis? If we had 24 units in a single grow room, how many employees would be necessary to tend to the room, tend plants, checking quality, etc. 

 

Our facility on Parry Island is fairly large with 4 grow rooms where we won’t have more than 2 plant caretakers on at one time, 24/7, our gro towers do not require a lot of attention, and have been designed by an experienced professional with tons of grow experience that believes in the kiss method. Labor costs of each facility will vary depending on current regulations and your own growing experience and preferences.

 

We have chosen a Perpetual Growing System, where fresh product is produced and available every 4 days on an on going basis. 

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »11. Gro Tower Assembly »][blox_text animation= »none »]

Q. As for the Gro Towers themselves, do they come pre-assembled or in a bunch of parts?

 

The 420 Rotary Hydroponic Gro Tower is not shipped pre-assembled, however, it is very easily assembled with our pre-assembly “kiss” method video. Our Canadian Manufacturer is first class, ships world wide now, and between FNG and our Canadian Manufacturer, we will never leave you hanging. Arrangements can be made for First Nation Growers to provide an FNG staff member on site to help ensure that your team assembles and places each unit properly and that you are comfortable moving forward. Individual Grow Rooms can be assembled one at a time to properly ensure set up and operational guidelines are met. We pride ourselves in customer service and believe ours is 2nd to none.

Plants are inserted into Rock-wool type cubes, which are secured in the “Quick Drain Trays”. The trays are then placed inside a circular wheel, the garden is motorized and the trays are revolved 24 hours a day around 2 center-fixed HID  lamps.

It takes approximately one hour for the trays to complete one revolution. Two reservoirs are supplied, one top and bottom, a pump is placed in the bottom reservoir and when switched on, fills the top reservoir to desired  depth.

“Quick drain Trays” are then revolved through the nutrient/water mixture, feeding the plants. Once all plants have been fed, the pump is switched off, letting the nutrient/water mix drain back into the main reservoir. Most plants will need to be fed a minimum of once a day, usually when the lamps are first turned on. Depending on the type and size of the plants being grown, a second feeding might be required.

Plants are fed a nutrient/water mixture. We can help you and your team here.

Our rotary gro towers system can be stacked 2 and 3 high for optimum space use, ensuring maximum space usage as well as quality quantity yields to satisfy both facility partners and investors as well as future community customers.

In terms of trimming and general plant care, both are at a minimum using our Rotary Gro Tower system, as you know, Medicinal Operations are highly regulated, where waste is both managed and controlled, where our system exudes minimal trimming and or plant care. Again, the compression resulting from the rotation results in plants with more internodes (flowering sites) and better flavor profiles, with less trimming giving result patterns of routinely higher yields.

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »13. Increased Yields »][blox_text animation= »none »]

YIELDS

If you enlarge your rooms to 26 x 40 x 12, the units can be double stacked to a capacity of 24 per room. This will give a yield of 165 to 192 lbs., per grow room depending on your growers experience, per growth cycle which various with different strains. In comparison to a traditional growing table with 254 plants @ 85 grams per plant yielding 40 to 47 lbs. Yield variations will depend on your Mater Grower’s experience.

Our indoor rotary hydroponic system triples your yields, in the same growth period, of the same said strains, in comparison to traditional growing methods, using the same space, in the same said growth cycle time frame.

 

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »14. Gro-Tower Size & Space »][blox_text animation= »none »]

SPACE

The 420 Model Gro Tower unit is 48″ wide by 96″ long and 5’ 4” inches high. Approximately 32 sq. ft. The grow area is 6’ by 12’ = 72 sq ft. If the wheel were to be broken down, it would be equivalent to a 12′ long table. Calculated by width, you are saving an extra 1/3 in the space.

[/blox_text][/blox_accordion_item][blox_accordion_item title= »15. Pricing »][blox_text animation= »none »]

Q. Curious on pricing of the units including the full active monitoring package.

 

FNG COST / PRICING

Pricing varies with each order, with a number of variances that are taken into consideration for the specific needs of each operation and facility, that include the number of Gro Tower units required, installation of both Gro Tower and Historical & Growth Monitor units, ongoing monitoring, training and development as well as pre-care -after-care positioning. FNG has preferred Indigenous Distributor Pricing available.

Rotary Gro Towers need assembly upon delivery, which is made easily following our FNG “kiss” method assembly video. We can provide an FNG staff member to visit on site to help ensure that your team has assembled each unit properly and that you are comfortable, when requested. Once assembled, our Rotary Hydroponic 420 Gro units are ready to plug into immediately begin production. Prices are quoted in Canadian dollars and subject to USA exchange rates. Delivery costs, taxes and assembly set-up & costs are not included.

Our Manufacture Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for each Gro Tower unit retails between $12,500.00 and $14,500.00 depending on orders, installation, consistent growth monitoring, required training and development. Historical Growth Monitors can carrying an additional cost of $1,750.00, again, depending on facility needs for consistent operations monitoring.

the gamut for the systems they power. The race towards smaller, greener and cheaper power supply designs is more intense than ever. Higher efficiencies, higher power densities, time to market, standard requirements and cost reductions are impacting models and designers alike.

Designing a power supply is a complicated process. When and where FNG can, we try to augment a part of the indigenous communities energy needs within our own FNG Community Garden Farm Facility. We continually engage emerging technology, with the goal of remaining technologically advanced in the best interest of the environment and our indigenous partners. We include renewable energy resources for both ‘community-owned’ projects and our third-party-owned facilities, whose power-source can be shared by a community, in our comprehensive planning process. “Renewable energies” is an important concept worth serious consideration for each 4seasons Community Garden Farming project. We then make this technology available to each First Nation and Inuit community that we work with across Canada, creating a cohesive relationship between community, environment and each 4seasons garden farming facility.

The International Energy Agency has projected that, in the absence of new actions, there will be one billion people lacking access to electricity in 2030. Most of those people live in remote communities worldwide, far away from the utility grid. It is usually impractical or uneconomical to extend utility grid to those dispersed populated areas due to the prohibitive costs of constructing the network.  Therefore, standalone diesel generators provide communities with their primary source of electricity. However, problems from a diesel-based power supply, such as pollution and high fuel cost, have attracted extensive public consideration of locally available renewable energy (RE) resources to supply power. Advances in RE technologies and rise in the price of diesel make the RE systems becoming increasingly popular, notably in remote areas. At the same time, some inter-related initiatives are also carried out to promote the RE utilization not only by the government but also the power supply companies. Recent studies suggest that a stand-alone RE system can provide a cost-effective alternative to the expensive grid extension or diesel electrification.

Besides, renewable and non-renewable energy sources have remarkably different economic characteristics. The high initial capital cost possibly is still the most significant barrier to RE promotion, while conventional power such as diesel tends to have high operating cost. Therefore, consider a trade-off between renewable energy and traditional energy for the lifecycle cost, environmental conservation, and technical feasibility.

The results of hybrid solar–wind-diesel–battery evaluate an elaborate analysis regarding power supply quality, life cycle cost, and greenhouse gas emission. The motivation of this study is trying to examine all possible power supply solutions for this island, including renewable and non-renewable power generation. Therefore eight possible power generation options in total are investigated, including hybrid RE and diesel system with storage and without storage.

Therefore, a diesel generator is included to make a hybrid RE and diesel system. The diesel generator provision can ramp up and down, to accommodate the intermittent output of RE. One advantage for including a diesel generator is the significant decrease in storage capacity of the battery bank, the PV capacity and wind turbine (WT) capacity, hence reducing system cost and improving power supply reliability, while an optimal combination of PV, WT and batteries can limit the fuel consumption of the generator.

The schematic diagram of a hybrid solar–wind-diesel–battery system, solar and wind resources typically provide bulk energy, whereas diesel generator performs as a backup. The PV and WT produce DC power, which is converted into AC power by the converter to serve the load, and the remaining power will be used to charge the battery bank. When the RE output cannot meet the load demand, the dispatch-able components (battery and diesel generator) will launch. The converter is bidirectional, not only converting the DC power from RE and batteries to AC power for serving the load but also converting the diesel surplus AC power to charge the battery.

First Nation Growers LP.is exceptionally well positioned and ahead of other hydroponic growers due to a reliable and exclusive relationship with our Canadian Gro-Tower Manufacturer. Our agreement allows our customer clients and other First Nation and or Inuit community Fresh Food Garden Farm growers to access our 365/24/7 fully automated control monitoring system for cold or hot climate, natural, indoor 4seasons growing, exclusive to First Nation Growers.

All facets of growth environments and production are monitored and recorded throughout each growth cycle, 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, with built-in alerts when growth parameters are outside of preset configurable settings. We are never alone in monitoring growth or production with an electronic, detailed technical growth chart kept on hand and available for historical reference of each growth cycle for each product in every Gro-Tower at any given time.

This automated control system monitors every aspect of growth and method of providing immediate, automatic alerts when growth parameters are outside of pre-configured settings. There is monitoring of cold or hot climate, indoor room temperatures, humidity, Co2 levels, PH and TDS levels and other garden farm parameters set for water temperatures for each grow unit. This monitoring maintains the highest standard of quality; grow cycle high yields and security.

Growth Monitors are installed at each project site on every Gro-Tower as well as at FNG Head Office to ensure 365/24/7 project growth monitoring, security and assistance to ensure the continued successes of each Community Garden Farm Project.

HVAC is more than a few pieces of mechanical equipment. It is an essential and integral component of every successful cold or hot climate 4seasons Garden Farming Facility.

  • An HVAC system works best when it takes local climate and initial pre-planned building designs into account.
  • In a “pre-planned” green-built facility, heating and cooling equipment in each room can be smaller, less costly, and less complicated.

Energy conservation, indoor air quality, and growth environment are among the core green building issues encompassed by heating, air-conditioning and ventilation design. These interrelated systems can be complicated, expensive to install, and costly to operate but green buildings also offer many opportunities to simplify and save. Central to the premise of thinking one grow room at a time, are the many passive solar features built into a garden farming green facility. HVAC design follows other fundamental building steps that can collectively reduce the size of the heating and cooling system by 30-50%. Solar orientation, insulation, window placement and design, even vegetation on the building site all directly affect heating and cooling loads. Designing a system based on real demand, not conventional practice is essential.

  • FNG makes sure our HVAC designs heating, and cooling equipment, are matched to and according to established industry procedures.
  • We design the HVAC system in conjunction with other building components, including insulation, windows, solar mass, and orientation.
  • We reduce the size, expense, and complexity of mechanical systems as much as possible where possible.
  • We install adequately sized fans in all grow rooms, meeting & training rooms, bathrooms, common rooms, deli, market, and kitchens.
  • In facility ventilation system, augmented heat recovery ventilator captures and stores latent heat.
  • Specify high-efficiency heating equipment and air conditioners with a high SEER.
  • In forced-air systems, run ducts through conditioned space where possible and seal all duct connections with mastic.
  • Avoid electrical resistance heating unless it’s used only on an intermittent spot basis.

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental control and comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal ecological controls of acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a sub discipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. HVAC is an integral part of both commercial and residential structures such as indoor greenhouses, single family homes, apartment buildings, and senior living facilities. HVAC also includes medium to large industrial and office buildings, skyscrapers and hospitals, onboard vessels, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated for temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.

The three central functions of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning are interrelated, especially with the need to provide thermal environmental controls for comfort and acceptable indoor air quality within reasonable installation, operation, and maintenance costs. Ventilation (the V in HVAC) is the process of exchanging or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality which involves temperature control, oxygen replenishment, and removal of moisture, odours, smoke, heat, dust, airborne bacteria, carbon dioxide, and other gases. Ventilation removes unpleasant smells and excessive moisture, introduces outside air, keeps interior building air circulating, and prevents stagnation of the interior air. Ventilation includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. It is one of the most critical factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in buildings and indoor garden farms. Methods for ventilating a structure combine mechanical/forced and natural types. FNG Garden Farm HVAC systems designed for the individual grow room.

 EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW 

First Nations Growers Inc., is an organization committed to improving the over all social development and well-being of Indigenous and Inuit peoples by improving daily, year round, healthy diets and providing continual access to affordable, fresh foods in every Indigenous community possible.

This in turn, this will help unlock First Nation and Inuit peoples true potential toward positive social development through better health.

We believe Indigenous peoples social development, values and well-being can be dramatically improved through dietary education that includes the regular consumption of nutritionally rich, locally grown foods.

Our business is a collaborated vision between two close family members that share a common goal to make a difference today for tomorrow in our First Nations and Inuit communities, where daughter Dawn Tabobondung and her mother, Joyce Tabobondung share the same vision to find ways that contribute to the betterment of their membership and all indigenous peoples.

 OUR MISSION 

Our mission is to nutritionally empower individual Indigenous and Inuit communities from within their own communities, regardless of geographical cold or hot climate locations.

First Nation Growers Inc. is dedicated to taking the Indigenous peoples lack of daily nutrition problem head on.

By providing an environmentally friendly, financially viable, sustainable, attractive, cold climate, year round, indoor fresh foods growing solution for every community, including Indigenous and Inuit peoples living in more remote sub-zero, time restricted, growth unfriendly, geographical locations, FNG will address important Indigenous daily health and community nutritional needs.

 THE WHY 

There have been important strides made on the part of many Aboriginal communities to improve education around health issues today, but despite these improvements, Indigenous peoples remain at higher risk for illness and earlier death than non-Native people.

Chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease are on the increase. There is a definite correlation between income, social factors, diets, nutrition and health. There is a higher rate of respiratory problems and other infectious diseases among First Nation children than among non-native children, inadequate housing, and crowded living conditions as well as a lack of daily nutrition are just some of contributing factors.

The overall health of Aboriginal people has improved in recent years; however, it continues to lag behind the overall population. In 2009, the life expectancy for Canadian women was 83 years of age compared to 79 years for men. Between 1980 and 2001, life expectancy at birth for registered indigenous men increased from 60.9 to 70.4 years and for registered First nation women from 68 to 75.5 years.

Health Canada reported in 2001–2002 that the leading causes of death among registered Indigenous peoples were external causes (accidental poisoning, vehicle accidents, and intentional self-harm), diseases of the circulatory system (hypertension, cardiovascular disease), and neoplasms (various types of cancer).

Suicide rates for Aboriginal peoples in Canada have for some time been much higher than those of the general population. A 2000 study found that suicide and self-inflicted injuries were the leading causes of death for Indigenous people below 45 years of age. Suicide rates among First Nation youth are around five to six times the national average, while Inuit youth rates are approximately ten times the national average. The causes for such high rates of suicide are multiple and may include depression due to social, cultural, or generational dislocation; drug and substance abuse; lack of housing, fresh foods and nutrition, and access to opportunity.

Her son Warren, has followed in her footprints, sitting as the current Chief of Wasauksing First Nation.

Joyce has held several key management, council, and First Nations leadership positions throughout the years and currently sits as the area Anishinabek Friendship Centre, President. There is no one better to lead the vision of First Nation Growers Inc., in developing First Nations and Inuit community partnerships that will surely last for generations based on the strong vision and corporate core values of the FNG.

More importantly, Joyce understands the needs, and wants of the Anishinabek peoples and their community concerns, including the important nutritional well-being of First Nations and Inuit communities throughout all of Canada, moving forward into the future.[/blox_team][/blox_column][/blox_row][blox_row][blox_column width= »1/1″][blox_accordion][blox_accordion_item title= »SOCIAL CONDITIONS OF ABORIGINAL & INUIT PEOPLES « ][blox_text animation= »none »]

Historic inequities have left indigenous children, youth, and families without much needed supports and services, low incomes and remote locations. Aboriginal people in Canada are our forgotten peoples, that have been deprived of their lands, their cultural traditions, and their unique way of life. Children have been removed from their families and sent away to residential schools – where many were abused – with well-documented, everlasting, inter-generational effects, that to this day, many are still dealing with.

The First Nations Growers Inc. organization is committed to improving the overall social development and well-being of indigenous and Inuit peoples through improving daily, year- round, healthy diets by providing continual access to affordable, fresh foods in every indigenous community where possible, that in turn will help unlock First Nation and Inuit peoples true potential toward positive social development through better health.

VOICES OF THE LAND
Flora was Chief for 27 years and Secretary at Parry Island First Nation

 

« We must look after this land given to us by the Great Spirit – don’t sell the land! Don’t waste the trees! We have to help each other. Our young people need training of the way we were. We need to educate our young people as professionals and use our elders as counsellors. »

 

« We should be positive about life, loving one another and thanking the creator for this guidance and wisdom. »

 

« Sharing, that’s the traditional way, Sharing is good, Sharing our ideas and thoughts at gatherings with all Nations will foster growth. Sharing an idea is like a seed, It will grow.  Elders must be recognized for the great knowledge which they can offer to leaders and their people during times of struggle and change. Take time with the elders and be patient waiting for their answers. »

 

« Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work and to look up at the stars. »

 

« Think Seldom of your enemies and often of your friends and every day of the Creator. »
