UCN is operating a low (near-net-zero) energy greenhouse on The Pas campus.
The construction of the greenhouse began in 2020 in partnership with the Composites Innovations Centre (recently rebranded as CIC Engineering) with the primary purpose of strengthening food sovereignty, community health, and student learning opportunities within northern communities.
