CAN (SK): Family builds hydroponic farm in former school building

A Saskatchewan family has found a way to make farming work year-round.

The Nel family, originally from South Africa, started a hydroponic farm inside an old school in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan.

June Nel said her family has lived in the community for about 10 years and didn't want to see the old Stewart Hawke school building torn down.

"So many people went to school in this building. So many people have memories in this building, and it's kind of sad to just see a building standing empty," she told CTV News.

June credits her husband, Jan, with the idea of the Let-Us Grow indoor farm.
