Lovell, Inc. Working on Greenhouse Project
Written by Andrew-Rossi on January 29, 2019
The Lovell economic development organization, “Lovell Inc.”, received approval to move forward with a plan to bring a year-round greenhouse to Big Horn County.
According to an article from the Wyoming News Exchange, the Lovell Town Council on Jan. 8 approved Lovell Inc.’s request to begin soliciting business proposals as they attempt to find an operator for a commercial greenhouse and food hub in the area.
Americorps VISTA Food Hub Coordinator Jeanine Swift said New Jersey consultant Greener By Design has supplied Lovell Inc. with a list of recommendations for greenhouse companies, hydroponic companies and other organizations which may be interested in running the greenhouse.
The greenhouse project is continuing even though Western Sugar pulled out of the project in mid-December. Western Sugar would have provided the land and also hot wastewater to aid in the operation of the greenhouse.
