Keith Bouchard is an innovating professional at the forefront of the fields of commercial farming, cannabis cultivation, and agricultural technology. He is truly a renaissance man in the era of legal cannabis cultivation. He is a grower, organic farmer, inventor, entrepreneur, published author, teacher, business owner, and creative collaborator. By opening and operating several startups, Keith has developed extensive entrepreneurial experience in cannabis consulting services, organic greenhouse construction, and cultivation technologies.
Since graduating from Georgia State University’s Robinson School of Business, Keith has gained comprehensive experience in scalable mass crop production through co-founding and managing a large commercial indoor/outdoor organic farm in Georgia. From Georgia, Keith moved to Colorado and became founder and co-inventor at Multiponics, an indoor gardening manufacturer and online boutique store.
Keith has been published multiple times as a contributing author in Maximum Yield Magazine, an international gardening publication. His passion for innovation and conservation is paving the way for future farming and cultivation practices. As Keith’s main focus is always on the end product, his attention to detail and innovative mindset into the processes that allow him to arrive there are what set Keith apart from the standard industry professional.
Keith vows to advance the term “green” to an entirely new level and change industry standards across the globe. His technological developments in water conservation, maximizing limited grow area, and combining natural environments with controlled environments are an absolute necessity as the world population continues to expand while resources simultaneously become more expensive and limited. Striving to minimize the resources needed to grow sustainable food, Keith is on a mission to change the way the world not only consumes food, but also how it views industrial farming, mass production, and limited natural resources.
