CKTB - NEWS- Greenhouse

A new research and technology network is being setup for greenhouses in Southern Ontario thanks to $5 million from FedDev Ontario.

The network will be anchored at Niagara College's Niagara-On-The-Lake campus, allowing representatives from the college, Guelph University, and the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre to work together on projects.

Some of the money will also be used to build a new greenhouse at the college, outfitted with sustainable technologies to support pilot projects from within the industry.

The Greenhouse Technology Network is expected to support more than 130 businesses and create over 200 jobs.
