WHEREAS the Client is desirous of utilizing the services of private cultivation, processing, and packaging of the Client’s personal cannabis for the Client’s personal use, in a private space, as required for the purposes set out herein, due to the Client’s personal circumstances in that they do not possess the requisite knowledge, skill, space, or infrastructure to grow their personal cannabis to the high standard of quality and safety that they require;

WHEREAS the Client wishes to appoint the Club as an agent to lease out certain private, secure, cannabis cultivation space, as well as appoint a professional horticultural service provider to tend to the Client’s crop cultivated on that space, on their behalf for their personal use, as set out in Annexure A (“Grower Agreement”) hereto;
