CGC' 16 Bus Tour Participants
Highlights from the bus tour:
A visit St. David's Hydroponics; one of the largest bell pepper growers in the Niagara Peninsula. St. David's was founded in 1985 by Dutch immigrants. They currently operate all Venlo-style greenhouses in Beamsville and Niagara-on-the-Lake on a total of 38 hectares. Now, the foundation is laid for another 10 hectare greenhouse, at the phase four expansion of the operations in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Click here for the recap of our visit to St. David's.
Another stop of the bus tour was the operations of cucumber grower Bill Martens, who believes in the future of diffused glass. During the visit the Beamsville greenhouse grower shared his first experiences with growing cucumbers under diffused glass in his new 7 acre expansion.

Also the Oorsprong family of Northend Gardens in Jordan Station, Ontario opened their doors during the Canadian Greenhouse Conference Bus Tour. Carrie, Ted and Jon toured us around and showed us what kind of impact the introduction of the exclusive Medinilla variety had on their day-to-day production process and how it transferred their flower and bedding plant business into a one of its kind award winning exotic plant nursery.

Bus tour participants also had a chance to visit Vineland's recently opened pre-commercial research greenhouse. The large scale greenhouse complex is one of North America's largest and most modern, independent research greenhouses. Click here for the article of our visit to Vineland.
And finally, some other big news from Canada: Because the first strawberry plants were planted in the new greenhouse of Boem Berry Farms in Kingsville, Ontario. The new company is the result of a partnership between Canadian grower and marketeer Mucci Farms and Dutch growers Ton Bastiaansen and Joost van Oers.
