Growing Island Growers of Courtenay is excited to announce the launch of its new business of rental and owner operated equipment featuring BCS walk-behind tractor with specialized tillage attachments. The technology of this equipment far outperforms ordinary rototillers. The BCS two-wheel tractor, combined with tillage attachments of rotary plow and power harrow, produces optimal growing beds even when starting from sod.
GIG prepares planting-ready raised beds for backyard gardeners and commercial growers. It also offers a rental option and consulting services to small scale commercial growers.
With decades of farming experience and education in highly productive certified organic growing techniques, GIG’s equally important goal, through training and consulting, is to empower growers to operate highly successful businesses. GIG teaches the craft of intensive planting techniques such as stale bedding with flame weeding, efficient irrigation using drip tape and succession crop planning among other proven techniques.
Growing Island Growers services are especially advantageous to startup or new growers with up to five acres of production. Their small scale vegetable production expertise dramatically impacts business success and can reduce costly errors. Renting significantly reduces the need for capital funds and GIG provides you access to highly sophisticated small scale equipment.
