The purpose of the Green Garage project is to act as a demonstrator for green building materials in the province and also beyond. The Green Garage project reinforces the notion that biocomposites and related alternative building materials provide new sources of potential revenue to farmers. It promotes alternative thinking for architects and builders who may not yet have considered the potential of these materials. One of the main focuses of the project is on using Manitoba grown biomass in natural products. Building the Green Garage and demonstrating innovative green materials is an essential component in continued efforts to commercialize biomass in Manitoba.
