Ag1054 is Yukon’s first ever off-grid containerized hydroponic farming system.

Partnered with the University of Calgary and Arctic Institute of North America, the container is located at the Kluane Lake Research Station on mile 1054 of the Alaska Highway.


Despite the colder weather and low light conditions in the Yukon, Ag1054 is able to provide another option to local communities for fresh produce. How? Well, we are the Kluane Lake’s first ever off-grid containerized hydroponic growing system which has the potential to produce 700 individual plants a week!

Made from a converted 40 by 8 ft shipping container, this off-grid system is designed to use solar power and well water from the surrounding environment. The hydroponic system requires no dirt and instead a nutrient rich water solution provides maturing plants with everything needed to grow and thrive. Because of the unit’s modular design and controlled environment, we are able to maximize the growing potential of our plants, allowing us to grow the same amount of produce as a one-acre farm year-round!

Thanks to the use of hydroponics, we have a wide variety of possibilities for what can be grown in the unit. Things such as leafy greens (kale, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, bok choi), herbs (basil, cilantro, thyme), fruiting plants (tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers), and even root vegetables (potatoes, carrots, radishes). We are always taking suggestions for what to grow next, if you have any ideas for what you’d like to see in the unit please contact us or visit our Facebook page @Ag1054.

Once operational Ag1054 will supply produce to the surrounding areas of the Kluane Lake region and to various partnerships, such as local restaurants and grocery stores.
