Kazakhstan greenhouse gets renovated after 30 years

Aliya Zhumataeva and Kazbek Asylbekov's idea to restore the abandoned greenhouse came up five years ago. So, Aliya and Kazbek applied to the regional executive authority in Kazakhstan to get permission to acquire the facility.

Yet, it turned out that the greenhouse was unlisted. "Judges claimed that the greenhouse had no owner, then it was taken over by the state," says Alia Zhumataeva. So, they participated in the auction, and the facility was transferred to them. Last year,  the renovation started. And now, the greenhouse looks as good as new.

Aliya and Kazbek employed eight people and started growing Severin cucumbers. The area of the heated greenhouse is more than a thousand square meters. Generally, they planned to harvest four kg per plant, with a yearly 70-ton production.

"Environmental sustainability is one of the main pillars of our company. Our products are shipped both to Karaganda and the capital," said Aliya. They are planning to grow 25 thousand tulips by March 8, 2023. "In springtime, it is cold to grow cucumbers. That's why we'll switch to tulips for that period, as those are better suited for the season," she added. On top of that, part of the plan for next year is to expand the greenhouse with a 200-square meter paulownia nursery.
