St. David's Hydroponics
Chuck Holmes & Stacia Sammy
St. David's Hydroponics exceeds the Ministry of Environment's sustainability requirements and operated in a closed system greenhouse.
St. David's Hydroponics is a huge hydroponic facility, originally started by three Dutch farmers who immigrated to Canada.
In 2014, they expanded their operations and now have 58 acres worth of greenhouses, with an onsite processing facility. St. Davids is one of the bigger operations we work with – during peak season they employ a staff of a hundred.
St. David’s prioritizes low carbon impact innovations. They use an integrated pest management system, grow plants in discarded coconut fibre, and recycle their own water. The greenhouse system is a closed system. During the summer months, that means they’re operating at a net zero carbon footprint!
