" Transforming the world one tree at a time"

Who are We?

GRDC was founded by Rodney Sidloski in 2017 to take ownership for the patent, to market franchise licencing for the system in Canada and internationally, to carry on continued research focused primarily but not exclusively on protocoling thousands of tree, cereal and other plant varieties world wide in the floating plant production and live storage system. Under GRDC, Sidloski was the first to test Asian rice, wheat, oats cereals as well as canola and flax production in floating fields.  GRDC will also be home to an upcoming research journal to be the repository of many important discoveries and ongoing research projects. Today, GRDC has an outstanding international team working to create world changing innovation and research that is positively transforming the lives of many!


Meet the Founder of GDRC

Rodney Sidloski had a distinguished early career working with the UN and CARE International in managing large scale emergency logistics programs across Africa.  In 1994 Sidloski founded the non-for-profit  HELP International and as its CEO and lead researcher carried out intensive environmental and human settlement research and field programming resulting in: a successful multi-level slum conversion program and a national women-led agro-forestry program in Kenya both which received special recognition from the federal government and by Saskatchewan's Council for International Cooperation.  In Canada under Sidloski's leadership HELP carried out five key environmental innovations including: first living landfill forest caps in Canada, a 250  km forest buffer program for cultivated stream margins, research and programming with multiple towns and a public utility installing forestry to reverse severe and spreading soil salinity.  In 2015 under Sidloski's leadership HELP took over control and operations of the federal government's 640 acre Shelterbelt Center in Indian Head during its decommissioning.  In 2016 HELP started its own 160 acre tree farm outside of Weyburn where it maintains a one million tree nursery that is currenting increasing to  2,000,000 tree capacity.   HELP markets low cost tree seedlings across all three prairie provinces and carries out public education in lower maintenance higher growth innovations in tree planting.  


In 2016 Sidloski patented the floating tree and all plant production and live storage system in Canada followed by international patent and regional patents across Europe, Africa, Australia and Israel.
