Join us at one of North America’s foremost horticultural research centres - Vineland Research and Innovation Centre.  Our highly-skilled research team will demonstrate some of our leading edge projects and programs including world crops, rose breeding and consumer insights.

You will hear about Vineland’s consumer insights & tomato flavour research which helps guide the development of new tomato varieties. At Vineland’s Victoria Avenue Research Farm you will walk through rows of hardy roses and learn about the first rose release from Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection – Canadian Shield(TM) roses in time for Canada’s 150th birthday on July 1, 2017.

A guaranteed highlight of the tour will be the walk-through of Vineland’s Collaborative Greenhouse Technology Centre. This pre-commercial scale greenhouse is the largest focused on horticulture research in Canada with a footprint of approximately one acre. This space brings companies, industry and researchers together to foster collaboration and drive economic growth by bridging the gap between innovation and commercialization.

This is a tour you will not want to miss and we look forward to welcoming you.

Please note: Participants will need to wear closed-toed shoes or they will not be able to enter the greenhouse.
