The Growers Source Mission: Connect, Collaborate, Grow

Thanks to the contribution of key industry brands, this non-profit initiative has been deployed by the growers for the growers. The platform’s mission is to help growers connect with other serious cannabis growers from coast to coast, support each other’s cultivation and business efforts, and use the platform for collaboration, so the entire community can bond, grow, and succeed.

  • CONNECT – Connect and maintain relationships between you and your fellow Canadian cannabis industry growers. 
  • COLLABORATE- Overcome challenges together with your fellow growers, by learning and expanding a collective knowledge.
  • GROW – Grow your plants, business, and skills while aiming for quality, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness.
The Grower's Source - Your Exclusive, Private Network

Your Exclusive, Private Network

Get inside a private network on a secure platform that lets you openly (and legally!) talk shop with your Canadian cannabis community. Now you have a safe place to share your thoughts and insights. Meet the head growers and their crews, plus industry pioneers, operations managers and quality assurance professionals; the manufacturers, vendors, retailers and service providers; even passionate home and AMCPR growers that come with their own unique insights. Whatever your level of involvement in cannabis cultivation, you’re certain to find kindred spirits, and to expand your knowledge and network needed to seize opportunity.

Stay In Touch All Year Long With Like-Minded Growers

Stay In Touch All Year Long With Like-Minded Growers

While growers love meeting with peers at industry events, it’s only once every few months at most, even if you get to them all. Fortunately, the Growers Source allows you to stay in touch all year long with a trustworthy network of like-minded growers. Cool people that you can bounce ideas off of, ask questions, and share challenges, commiserate, and bond with. So even as you are immersed in full days tending to your plants, you can still keep learning how to grow better, and share what you’ve already learned. You’ll constantly hear from growers like you on the front lines about new trends, methods, and technologies that will improve your plants and your business.

The Spark That Launched The Community: The 2021 Growers Source Virtual Expo

With 350 attendees from every Canadian province attending 25 live, interactive learning and networking sessions over the course of a 14 days period in January and February 2021, the inaugural Growers Source Virtual Expo was a wildly successful gathering of serious cannabis growers and the industry experts who support them.
