Former microgreens producer bought by cannabis company

More than half of Greenbelt Greenhouse now belongs to Harvest One Cannabis. 

According to the release, Lynden-based Greenbelt Greenhouse will be primarily dedicated to supplying Harvest One’s products. Greenbelt’s greenhouse facility totals 152,000 sq. ft., along with a 42,000 sq. ft. headhouse that could be a future location for extraction and processing.

Greenbelt still has a pending application with Health Canada for a standard cultivation licence and a standard processor licence. Once licensed, the facility is predicted to produce 15,000 kg or more of flower per year for Harvest One.

Formerly a microgreen-growing facility, Adamson and partner Michael Curry had looked to sell the greenhouse property last fall, following multiple recalls from the CFIA on Greenbelt's microgreen products.

In 2017, Greenbelt had been awarded $640,585 through the federal grants program Growing Forward 2 to modernize their then-new 3.5-acre greenhouse facility. The facility was upgraded with an Acrylite roofing material that improves light penetration, an automated soil and fertilizing line for microgreens and a multiple variety seeding machine, with the hopes of increasing production of Canadian certified organic microgreens.
