People in Cumberland House could be enjoying fresh vegetables in the not-too-distant future.

The community has been working over the past year with Heifer International to establish its own organic farm and co-op.

Michelle Laliberte is the president of Ministik Co-op.

Laliberte says they want to plow the land this summer and get ready to seed next year.

She says they hope to improve the availability of fresh produce for local residents and also sell some of it to other communities.

According to Laliberte, some of the proposed vegetables include zucchini, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, lettuce and onions.

A sacred land-breaking ceremony was held yesterday.

Laliberte says they are also hoping to partner up with some educational institutions to bring programming into the community.
