Australia: Casey Houwelings, Peter Cummings contribute to MMJ project

PUF Ventures Australia has retained Casey Houweling and Peter Cummings as greenhouse consultants for the medical cannabis Northern River Project, a 1,200,000-square foot greenhouse being constructed in north eastern New South Wales. Houweling and Cummings will contribute to the design and construction of the most technically advanced and environmentally sustainable greenhouse to grow medical cannabis.

“We are very pleased to have both Casey Houweling and Peter Cummings working on our medical cannabis Northern Rivers Project.” said Michael Horsfall, CEO of PUF Ventures Australia. “We have the opportunity to take an innovative approach to building one of the largest medical cannabis growing complexes in the world, and Casey and Peter will lead with the advanced design of the greenhouse. Their expertise will contribute to one of the most efficient and environmentally sustainable designs on the planet, as we strive to have the highest quality and lowest cost cannabis that is grown under the sun. We believe that natural sunlight will be a significant advantage with the advanced growing systems under consideration, and will allow us to maximize the climate of the beautiful Richmond Valley Shire in the Northern Valley Region of Australia.”

Houweling is CEO of Glass Investments Inc, and is a world renowned greenhouse innovator, designer, operator and Grower. While Cummings was a Canadian Chartered Accountant until 2010 and has worked with Mr. Houweling for over 20 years. Both are currently employed with several cannabis companies in Canada and will work exclusively for PUFA in Australia.

Northern Rivers Project
The Northern Rivers Project is a joint venture between PUF Ventures, PUF Ventures Australia, and MYM Nutraceuticals, to build a 1.2 million square foot greenhouse operation on a 27-hectare parcel of land near the town of Casino in northern New South Wales, Australia. When complete, the greenhouse will be one of the most technically advanced and environmentally sustainable medical cannabis operations in the world and include large-scale greenhouse, manufacturing, processing and office facilities for the cultivation, production and manufacture of medical cannabis and associated products in Australia. The first phase of the project will cover approximately 300,000 square feet, which will be the largest medical cannabis greenhouse in Australia.
