Pacific Grown Organics
Local, Clean, Green, Smart.
Pacific Grown Organics is made up of local farmers who are dedicated to being good farmers and great neighbors, operating at the highest standards, promoting responsible and ethical practices, and protecting public health and safety.
PGO's revitalized greenhouse will decrease energy consumption, negate it's carbon footprint, improve local infrastructure, and bring new valuable jobs to the community.
PGO employs state of the art acoustical control technologies reducing local noise dissemination to a mere whisper and its uniquely designed greenhouse air pressure system will neutralize all cannabis odors to ensure the enjoyment of the quality of life that we cherish in Carpinteria.
PGO will have: a closed-loop water irrigation system reducing water consumption with zero water runoff, a zero-waste soil mending program, small scale weekly harvesting schedules, and no large vehicles will be needed for the farm.
PGO provides strong living wages and takes care of its employees helping them develop their career interests while promoting upward growth within the company. This is supporting our local families. Partnering with our local non profit, Pacific Grown Impact, employees and their families are offered scholarship opportunities.
PGO has remained candid and transparent, offering tours, information sessions, promoting education, and attending all events and meetings surrounding the industry to help remain on top of its responsibilities.
Cannabis is helping to revitalize the local economy and preserve the community’s agricultural roots with a sustainable clean crop.
PGO is proudly clean, green, smart, and engaged!
