Sonny Zoe, Arctic Energy Alliance’s Tlicho Regional Energy Project Coordinator is helping with the Whati community garden.

Every bite of food we grow locally saves energy. Trucking or flying in food to our communities requires energy and creates more greenhouse gases. Growing food locally means better tasting and fresher food too. The picture to the right shows residents of Whati preparing the community garden to plant some vegetables in Whati. Thanks to all the volunteers. We are hoping to plant potatoes, carrots, peas and cabbages.

Take action on energy use and climate change today!
