"Northern food security is in an exciting place," shared Tarek Bos-Jabbar, CEO of ColdAcre Food Systems and IncubateNorth participant. "It's making some great strides forward. A lot of smart people have been solving individual solutions, and then we're just trying to put them all together in one cohesive thought right now. That's the big picture of where we also want to be: selling a full food system that fits the community."
Sonny Gray and the team at North Star Agriculture provide innovative food sovereignty solutions to communities of all sizes, and have been growing their company while participating in IncubateNorth. North Star has supported comprehensive projects, such as Na-cho Nyak Dun First Nation Farm, and is working with Carcross/Tagish FN on Porcupine Creek Farm.
Michel Duteau, founder of YukonGrow and former IncubateNorth participant, is passionate about providing high-quality, local, eco-friendly and effective living soils, grow media and grow amendments. The Yukon poses challenging growing conditions and poor soil quality, which impacts our ability to grow local, nutritious food.
Elise McCormick and Joanne Sherrard were raising their children and working day jobs, when they decided to find a project they could collaborate on as friends. Curiosity led them on a journey into the world of cosmetic chemistry. Both women experienced irritation from eczema, acne and rosacea, and wished to develop a remedy for sensitive skin.
