Growing Cannabis in the Garden Workshop Saturday, June 1, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

…” Whether you call it hemp or marijuana, enjoy THC and/or CBD, it is easy to grow in your backyard. Join expert Emily Gogol to learn how easy it is to grow this versatile plant.

This workshop will cover the how and why of your starting material (clones, seeds, plants) and provide step by step instructions for growing outdoors on a patio or in the backyard (think tomatoes, but easier). Emily will answer your questions with sound advice based on years of gardening experience and will bring a variety of ‘show and tell’ items to demonstrate how to successfully grow at home. Cannabis seeds will be available for purchase and you can get a signed copy of The Cannabis Gardener (Penguin Random House 2021).”
