OUR FACILITY

Our modern, state of the art fully indoor facility is purpose built to cultivate flowers to the highest international standards - with absolute consistency, and the most stringent controls. All growth variables are precisely controlled and managed 24/7, including the lighting, humidity, temperature, water purity and air flow.

STERILE OPERATION

Full protective gear including full body coveralls, shoe covers, hairnets and gloves are worn in the facility at all times.

Shoes are sprayed with a liquid sanitiser aerosol before applying the shoe covers; and hands are washed and sanitised upon entry into the facility.

The comprehensive protection equipment prevents any possible  cross-contamination that might occur.

There’s an effective water management system in place to minimize the consumption of this valuable resource, and also to avoid reliance on an inconsistent municipal system.

There's a 30 000 litre tank on-site that harvests rainwater. And the run-off water from cultivation is recaptured to prevent the nitrates and fertilizers from entering the water system, or the nearby river.  

WATER

The stems of cultivated plants are shredded and used for compost wherever possible. Nothing is wasted. Even the plastic containers the nutrients arrive in are reused and repurposed.

RECYCLING

There are plans to operate as much of the facility as possible on renewable sources, including solar solutions.

RENEWABLES

After each harvest, MedCan donates the coco coir growth media used to an eco-therapist, Scotch, who runs a community garden in Katlehong township to improve their vegetable crops.

The project is hugely beneficial for both the environment and the local community as it increases jobs and creates nutritious food security in a needy area. 

Besides adding carbon-rich compounds to the soil; the coir increases water retention as well as improving soil drainage and aeration, allowing him to grow bigger, better vegetables.

Through the donations, Scotch is also able to recruit more people to train, as well as send his best “pupils” to MedCan for employment.
