First Nations, industry work to rejuvenate the land

The staff call them the “Cadillacs” of greenhouses. 

These two, 200-foot long, 40-feet wide monstrosities on the grounds of the Twin Sisters Native Plant Nursery in Moberly Lake produce plants primarily for the purveyors of the natural gas industry, and others.

The business plan is simple: inside the nursery you won’t find retail specials like flower baskets or tomatoes. Instead, this greenhouse grows and sells plants native to the Peace Region, so mining companies, the oil and gas industry and Crown corporations can restore the lands disturbed by pipelines, dams and coal mines.
