In this episode of Growing Exposed, our garden tour guide Justin Cooper takes us into a federally licensed facility, strictly for medical patients, and we hear an inspiring story from a medical patient himself. Justin has over 25 years experience in the hydroponics industry and knows his stuff when it comes to what makes a good grow operation.
This facility produces top-notch, 100% organic medicine and has extremely tight security measures in place: strict tabs are taken on who enters and exits grow rooms. In order to enter these rooms, visitors and staff are quarantined and must wear the proper gear to prevent contamination: booties, hairnets, room-specific lab coats and latex gloves. Fob-controlled steel doors also ensure only authorized personnel have access to grow rooms at any given time.
According to professional growers, such as the Garden Sage David Robinson, it’s worth it to garden organically: “Today, more than ever, it’s worth it to garden organically and provide the healthiest plant material we possibly can.”
