Focus on Business Opportunities in Reclamation – August 4 – 9 am to 1 pm PDT

This Without Borders forum is focused on business opportunities in reclamation.

Because reclamation exits across all industry sectors from agriculture to engineering to greenhouse production, it is a worthy subject of investigation when it comes to potential growth.

For instance, NATS Nursery, a company already business matching in this Without Borders, is a privately owned native plant nursery growing over 250 species of native plants and utilizing over 140,000 sq. feet of greenhouse and cold frame space on a property spanning 30 acres in Langley, BC.

There have also been recent policy changes at the BC Oil and Gas Commission that make the use of native plants for reclamation mandatory. As pointed out by Katrina Elliot of Four Corners Management Consulting, creating the link between these two things could create many powerful opportunities, especially for Indigenous communities who often have a specific interest in the reclamation and maintenance of native flora.

In this instance, business opportunities in reclamation could include creating culturally-appropriate employment on the land, native plant assessments and seed harvests, growing of native plants in nurseries, the storage of native plant species, and many others.

Greenhouse projects can be developed in varying sizes. Connect at this event to find out what opportunities exist for communities and entrepreneurs.

Ace’s Take:

“I find this conversation really exciting because it helps to highlight an increasingly important version of capitalism and financial freedom that doesn’t involve the demolition of Indigenous culture or exploitation of Indigenous lands. In fact, this version of capitalism could even participate in the active healing of already-exploited land, such as the planting of native flora within forested cut blocks alongside forestry seedlings.  ”
