A BIOPHARMACEUTICAL company about to start growing medicinal cannabis in the Lismore LGA will grow and donate 60,000 tube stock native plants annually for local regeneration projects.
CannaPacific confirmed today it will grow the plants at its cultivation and research facility near Lismore.
The project was supported by environmental enterprise Greening Australia, who will be providing native seed.
CannaPacific CEO Joshua Dennis said the company has forged a strong relationship with Greening Australia.
“We share the enthusiasm of Greening Australia, the Australian Government and the broader community in wanting to see the regeneration of our unique native forests, and the restoration of the natural habitat for our native animals and birds,” he said.
“CannaPacific’s agreement with Greening Australia will enable us to contribute through growing and maintaining approximately 60,000 native tube stock plants annually to an advanced stage of growth on our Lismore property.
