Edmonton, AB – November 24, 2021BioSelect, a division of AltaGreen, has partnered with Yellowhead Tribal College to supply equipment and knowledge to aid in the launch of the College’s new Vertical Farming Operator Certificate Program.  This program provides opportunities for Indigenous communities, organizations and individuals to exercise sovereignty in the production of their food, as well as pursue long-term food security and sustainability.

AltaGreen, through BioSelect, is supplying the lab equipment (a fully-functioning vertical farming module) and will aid in developing the curriculum for the certificate program.

A BioSelect Indoor Vertical Farm produces food in vertically stacked layers of grow beds. The BioSelect facility uses indoor farming technology combined with controlled-environment agriculture technology, where all environmental factors are governed: artificial control of light, humidity, temperature, air exchange and fertigation.
