August 24, 2014 - garden totes

I’ve sooo been in a summer haze. It’s still hazed around here. But a other day, it privileged a little. That’s when we speckled a primary notice during Wonderland Nursery in Garb. Here’s what’s up:

Healing Harvest Farms down in Mendo is carrying a Grand Opening Farmers Market subsequent Saturday, Aug 30th, during 2 p.m.

Organic outside medicinal cannabis is a star. The marketplace also facilities uninformed furnish and food, a hash-making demo and live song by Guerrilla Takeover, Strawberry Smog, The Gypsy Thorns, Yukmouth and Green R. Fieldz.

According to a handbill, a series of companies will be on hand, presenting “live drops.” Nicole Burton from Healing Harvest simplified this word for me in an email:

Live drops meant that a combine artists make a live entrance with their freshest, latest product. It’s terminology used by remove artists to emanate hype for their brand.”

Admission is singular to ages 18+ with a current 215. A alloy will be on-site for 215 recommendations that day. Also, we have to be a member of a Healing Harvest Farms common to attend — “Free acknowledgment with signup.”

You can find a navigator on their Facebook page, and cinema of hulk weed plants. The plantation is during 54895 Hwy. 101, 10 miles north of Laytonville.

Go, dabbers.


And fad is building in SoHum for a arriving run of Pure Schmint’s “Resin From The Dead: A Comedy Extravaganza with a Fabulous Resinaires.”

The Redwood Times has some deets on what to design during a uncover — Alderpoint vampires, Bigfoot hunters and late bone-head farmers; flattering run-of-the-mill Humboldt things with a comedic spin.

The print for a uncover facilities this Elvira-looking chick, disposition opposite a headstone in a cemetery. She holding a illuminated fattie. A zombie palm reaches adult out of a grave during her feet. It’s holding a small vessel with a cannabis flower entrance out of a top. we view a small weed root during a bottom of a zombie wrist.

Hilarious. You won’t find a comic revue like this anywhere else.

The uncover runs during a Garberville Theater on Aug. 28-20 during 8 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 31 during 2 p.m. Tickets are $20, acknowledgment is giveaway for kids underneath 12.


Things are function in Willow Creek. Last Wednesday, there was a village assembly of cannabis people during a Veterans Park. Local activists Thomas Edrington, Luke Brunner and Richard Marks were there, rallying a cannabis farmers in an spontaneous setting, finish with some BBQ. These guys repute California Cannabis Voice Humboldt (CCVH), a domestic movement committee.

CCV sent out a press recover about a affair. Ryan Burns soon common a products with LoCO readers. Read Burns’ explanation and a full press recover here.

The assembly was well-attended, CCV Communications Coordinator Allison Edrington told me on Friday. She estimates that about 30-40 people incited out. Women were present. She says that H2O necessity was a large subject of contention and that seductiveness in cannabis tourism was voiced by some attendees too.

The CCVH organisation is totally on a hurl with a genocide of SB 1262, a maligned “poison Trojan Horse pill” bill. Now CCVH has a sights set on drafting a medical cannabis bidding for Humboldt County by a finish of a “stakeholders meeting” in October.

Marks spoke a other night in Willow Creek about a devise for a Oct meeting. According to a CCV press release, Marks gave a following deets:

“By a finish of that event, a breeze medical cannabis bidding for Humboldt County will be drafted with submit from many stakeholders, including member from environmental groups, a cannabis community, supervision agencies, medical and studious advocacy groups and a business community.”

Go, growers.


The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has been bustling too, busting out with a multi-coloured of bust press releases final week.

Deputies served a hunt aver on Mahan Rd. down in SoHum on Aug 19th. The HCSO press recover was brief and to a indicate with a few flattering photos. It includes a following info:

“When deputies arrived, they searched a skill and located 1,077 flourishing pot plants trimming from 8 feet to 15 feet tall. They also located 5 adults who were all incarcerated and identified.”

(Dude, fifteen-foot high weed plants? Weed tourists would adore to see that shit in genuine life, reduction a law coercion presence.)

The subsequent day, Aug. 20, deputies went for a triple header. According to the PR about their action-packed day, deputies served a hunt aver out by Bridgeville initial thing in a morning. Two-thousand-plus plants during this mark and 340 pounds.

Then they served a hunt aver on Tompkins Hill Rd. in Eureka. Deputies found cash, guns and paperwork indicating tenure of a Tompkins Hill Road Property and Highway 36 Property.

Then deputies went out to Ferndale to offer nonetheless another hunt warrant. Two group were detained, one was arrested. They found greenhouses, some weed.

The photos were not so prohibited with this press release. They miss pizzaz.

But a press recover for a bust on Aug. 21 out Honeydew is abounding with photos and sum of purported eco-violations during a grow site. The lead print on the LoCO post of a LEO dude in a garden and a other shot of a feet in a dust-laden highway are totes compelling.

Law coercion weed bust PR is fascinating to see in full-color LoCO-mode.


Before we go off to suffer your never-ending-harvest-summer day, we wish to move your courtesy to Willits News contributor Adrian Baumann. He’s attack a weed kick down there, entrance out with some engaging stories.

In his Aug. 15 story, Baumann debunks a prohibited “rumor” about private vigilantes raiding private grows down nearby Laytonville. Check that out, if we haven’t held breeze of that whole thing yet.

And in his Aug. 20 story, Baumann writes about removing a debate of an model weed farm. CBS 5 from San Francisco got in on a tour. Baumann writes that a repute from New York Times was there progressing in a day too.

Emerald Growers Association Executive Director Hezekiah Allen led a plantation tour. (Reads like EGA went by a change of leadership.) Allen is rocking a pinkish shirt. Some dudes only like pinkish shirts.

Check out Baumann’s best line:

“The owners of a plantation also appears to have recently stepped out of a Ganges, with a prolonged white beard, normal Hindu clothing, and a tilaka, a red blemish of colouring centered between his eyebrows.”


Northern California weed people and farmers challenge stereotypes… So many facets to a cannabis community. So many colorful characters.

However you’re concerned this subsequent week, we wish we suffer what we do.
