Canada: Lethbridge College researchers to give tour of Brooks greenhouse facility

Lethbridge College is opening the doors to its 60,000-square-foot greenhouse research facility in Brooks, Alta.

On Thursday, greenhouse growers and related industry representatives will visit the space to learn about the college’s footprint in greenhouse research and a project currently underway with Sunterra Greenhouse.

Funded by Results Driven Agriculture Research and the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, Lethbridge College’s collaboration with Sunterra encompasses both strawberry and tomato trials and spans two locations: pre-commercial validation studies at the Brooks facility as well as a commercial application at Sunterra’s high-tech 20-acre operation in Acme.

Lethbridge College assumed management of the Brooks Greenhouse from the Government of Alberta in October 2020.

Researchers with the college’s Centre of Applied Research, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship will also be available to discuss strawberry and tomato production findings with tour participants.
