The short film highlights over one hundred years of hard-earned farming principles
SpeakEasy Cannabis Club has released a powerful new short film documenting the storied history of the Geen family, the generational farmers who founded the Okanagan based cannabis company. From cherries, apples, ginseng to peaches, and now cannabis, SpeakEasy Founder, Marc Geen, and his family are pioneers of agriculture with more than a century of farming experience in the region.
Directed and shot by documentary filmmaker, Simon Schneider (from CBC’s The Nature of Things), the six-minute short film highlights over one hundred years of hard-earned farming principles passed down through five generations of the Geen family. From the humble beginnings of Marc’s great grandfather, Charles Howard Geen, who came to Kelowna, B.C. in 1903 and started growing fruit trees, to the purchase of 2200 acres of land in Rock Creek, B.C.’s fertile “Golden Mile”, in 1995, where the family has successfully farmed for four generations, to Merv Geen’s critical participation in SunRype’s success as a former Chairman-of-the-board, and to founding SpeakEasy in 2013, the film illustrates the foundation in which a true agricultural legacy is built and what has set SpeakEasy apart from other licensed cannabis producers.
