Miracle Valley

Production continues for the Miracle Valley Medicinal Alternatives M.V.M.A. Ltd’s $2.3 million purchase order for the manufacture of RotoGro Rotational Hydroponic Gardens for their 29,000 square feet ‘state of the art’ cultivation and manufacturing facility in British Columbia, Canada.

These markets include lawful cannabis license ownership, growing management services, industry leading nutrients, emerging tissue culture expertise and other supporting faculties of hydroponic growing.
