CAN (AB): Aurora's 800,000 sq.ft. greenhouse gets green light to grow

Aurora Sky, the 800,000-square-foot greenhouse located on the Edmonton International Airport land, received its Health Canada cultivation licence Monday.

“We are excited as can be,” said Cam Battley, Chief Corporate Officer of Aurora Cannabis.

The greenhouse is still under construction but has several grow rooms prepared to get rolling as early as this week.

“We are ready to start growing right away,” Battley said.

“We’re anticipating our first harvest in the second calendar quarter of this year, and completing the entire 800,000 square feet by this summer.”

At full capacity, Aurora Sky will produce more than 100,000 kg of cannabis per year.
