About 300 acres of property outside St. Laurent will provide a turn-key solution to the social economic challenges of the area. 

This, from Faustino Mercado who heads Winnipeg-based La Merage Group.  He purchased the land a few years ago with the intention of building a 15-million dollar organic greenhouse and fish-processing plant. 


Mercado explains the availability of renewable resources in the area made it a prime location.  He believes creating what he calls a sustainable community will help bring back the workers the area has lost. 


Mercado is inviting other companies to hop on board.  He hopes the project is completed within the next two years.
