Indoor Ag Conversations Presents: GoodLeaf Farms - A Dream Becomes Reality
Years In The Making, Canada’s First & Largest Commercial Vertical Farming Operation Delivers On Mission

What started in 2011 as a dream to deliver fresh, nutritious produce to Canadians year-round has become reality.

After years of trials and research to determine optimum growth conditions, new varieties and growing techniques, GoodLeaf's first full-scale commercial farm in Guelph, Ontario began supplying microgreens and baby greens to retail locations and restaurants throughout Ontario in 2019. Today, GoodLeaf is establishing a true national footprint with construction now underway for a 95,000-square-foot indoor vertical farm in Calgary, Alberta set to open in June 2023.

The team at Indoor Ag-Con is bringing you an idea-packed conversation with leaders from GoodLeaf and its equipment partners as they share how they did it and what is planned next. Join us for this 60-minute program and learn:


• What drives the GoodLeaf mission

• The how & why of the build-out process

• System architecture – hydroponic system, LED lighting, tray structure & more
