Construction of a cannabis cultivation plant on School Street is expected to begin in July and it should be producing products in a little over a year, the company’s president says.
The facility will be two stories and encompass 84,000 square feet with a footprint of just over an acre, or 44,000 square feet, Doug Rhodes, president of Community Gardens LLC, said. Approximately 51,000 square feet will be used for cultivation.
The goal is to occupy the 500 School St. building by January and be producing cannabis products 14 to 16 months from now, Rhodes said. “Once the building is complete we should be able to get to market fairly rapidly,” he said.
Products will include a “high quality flower, and healthier focused edibles,” Rhodes said. “Being a local organization, quality, consistency and safety are our focus. We think of it as making products for friends and neighbors, not customers,” he said.
