Maple Leaf Green World Inc. (OTC: MPEFF) (TSX-V: MGW), a Canadian eco-agriculture and renewable energy company, recently announced the addition of Mr. Joe Wong as its Vice President of Operations to lead its newly established medical cannabis project. With over 30 years of experience improving nursery systems, Mr. Wong aims to help the company rapidly expand its operations.

Recently, the company signed an agreement with Woodmere Nursery Ltd. to lease its greenhouse facilities in British Columbia. The three-year agreement provides an 80,000 square foot greenhouse facility and includes a purchase option for the entire 7-acre property, if the company’s successful in obtaining an MMPR license. The base rate of the lease is $3.00 per square foot on a triple-net basis.

Mr. Wong’s experience lies in improving nursery production and greenhouse systems, while growing high-quality seedlings in the field as bare-root and in containers. In 1978, he began his agricultural career with the B.C. Ministry of Forests before starting with Woodmere Nursery in 1985. He managed the design and construction of that facility with 12 million containerized seedlings per year.

“Wong has extensive experience assisting field silviculturalists in improving reforestation success from seed collection to planting through implementation of research trials and analysis of plantation failures,” read the company’s recent press release. “He has also reduced costs for silviculture programs by reducing the usage of seeds, growing crops with less energy, and reducing the time to grow.”

Mr. Wong’s first task will be to identify growing facilities and work closely with co-consultants in applying for the MMPR Licensed Producer status with Health Canada.
