A new way to provide food for remote areas

A project featured at the renewable energy fair at Chena hot springs yesterday (Sunday) could help areas where produce is hard to get.

The insulated trailer is filled with heads of lettuce being fast grown under L E D lights.

It can produce up to 150 heads of lettuce in one week.

Chena hot springs has been working for years with the University of Alaska on ways to grow plants year round.

The unit is being sent to Glenallen, where produce is expensive to ship in.

The plan is to build more of the units, to send to remote areas.
