Wierenga Greenhouses and the Environment

Wierenga Greenhouses Ltd has and continues to take the impact we have on the environment seriously. We believe that our company and our properties have been entrusted to us for a time and we’re required to be good stewards of what’s been given us. We feel that the lasting impacts that we make need to benefit not only us but also the generations that follow. With those goals in mind, Wierenga Greenhouses Ltd has invested heavily in the following areas:

Land and Water

Wierenga Greenhouses Ltd has been a participant in The Canada-Ontario Environmental Farm Plan Program (EFP). This program is a voluntary education and awareness program designed to help Ontario farmers prepare self-administered environmental risk assessments for their farms. Action plans are then developed to deal with identified concerns. Through this plan, Wierenga Greenhouses Ltd has taken preventative or remedial action in the following areas: Ponds, Water Wells, Erosion Control, Irrigation Runoff, Fertilizer Handling and Storage, Storage of Petroleum Products, Waste Reduction and Disposal.

Production Facilities

Our modern greenhouses utilize the following materials and efficiencies to minimize our impact on the environment: Energy efficient permanent, double skinned, acrylic glazing, Internal heat retention systems, Energy efficient natural gas heating plants, Latest environmental control computers, Energy efficient cooling fans, Irrigation collection and reuse.

Production Processes

Our production processes have been developed to primarily utilize recycled, recyclable or renewable materials. Our plastic containers are chosen because of their makeup that allows them to be 100% recyclable. In-house production includes utilizing pots made of sustainable coconut material. Our cardboard packaging is sourced from only recycled material.

We believe that Wierenga Greenhouses Ltd has taken extraordinary measures to be good stewards of our environment. We know that there is more to be done and our commitment is to continue to be on the leading edge of the latest technologies and processes that will ultimately benefit us all.
