The Meechim Project follows the story of Garden Hill First Nation and its journey to build a self-sustaining farm for a northern Manitoba community that is only accessible via air and ice roads. Northern communities in the provinces are often at a high risk of food insecurity - even more so than areas in the high Arctic - because of inaccessibility and a lack of subsidies.
