Several researchers from across the country — spanning from P.E.I to Whitehorse — are joining forces on a three-year project aimed to learn how (and if) temperate-climate season extension technologies like bioplastics and low tunnels can increase vegetable production and help increase food security in colder climates such as those in Canada’s North.

The Weather Network reporter Nathan Coleman shares some of their early successes and challenges in the video above.
