On May 16, 2024, Green Horizons, a large-scale cultivator of cannabis, opened the first 100,000-square-foot phase of its 1-million-square-foot cultivation campus in Coachella, Calif. The first phase will produce 35,000 pounds a year of sun-grown cannabis at a low-cost basis. 

California State Treasurer Fiona Ma, representatives from Coachella Mayor Steven Hernandez’s office and other dignitaries joined Green Horizons co-founders Los Arias and Michael Meade for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Ma noted that the $65 million dollar facility’s opening would bring tax revenue to the area along with job creation, with the Biden administration’s moves toward rescheduling marijuana poised to open up banking critical to businesses like Green Horizons.  

Guests toured the inside of the expansive grow facility, moving from room to room, observing the newly installed Neatleaf Spyder system in action, an AI platform monitoring plant growth and health, helping cultivators like Green Horizons adjust conditions in real-time and forecast accurately. Green Horizons and Neatleaf work hand in glove in harnessing data to more efficiently curate medical grade cannabinoid profiles. 

With partners including Tommy Hilfiger backing this venture, a second cultivation and manufacturing phase will break ground shortly on the consolidated campus, adding an additional 125,000 square feet. The biggest beneficiary of these projects may well be the community of Coachella itself, and that is just as important to Arias and Meade who want to grow an operation while making a difference.
