Regenerative Cannabis Discussion at Willits Hub – Evening of Friday, April 14 (press release).
MENDOCINO Co., 4/11/2017 — The Eel River Recovery Project will hold an event on sustainable cannabis farming at the Willits environmental hub on April 14.
The event will take place on Friday evening, April 14 from 6-9 PM and will be preceded by a fish barbeque.
The evening will be moderated by Bruce Hilbach-Barger of ERRP and the discussion will be open to local experts and practitioners to contribute their perspective.
Presenters will include Anna Birkas and Noah Cornell of Village Ecosystems, small organic cannabis farmer Mickey Bailey, Traci Pellar of the Mendocino Wildlife Association (MWA), and Pat Higgins also of ERRP.
Pat Higgins of ERRP will make a short presentation on the findings of Eel River Monitoring and Water Quality Awareness Pilot Project Final Report, which is available on-line at www.eelriverrecovery.org.
Noah Cornell is a soil fertility expert and will discuss how building living soils can not only increase your garden yield, but also cut down on the amount of water your plants need.
Mickey Bailey will be sharing the perspective of a small farmer currently applying for legal status.
He called ERRP in 2015 for technical assistance for his farm on the Eel River at the mouth of Woodman Creek downstream of Dos Rios.
Traci Pellar will share her perspective on the impacts of cannabis farms on wildlife in Mendocino County.
