On 4/20, please come and celebrate Santa Cruz’s cultural prominence in the organic farming and craft cannabis movement. Learn how legalization is shaping this industry with a visit to three local farms in Watsonville. Santa Cruz Cultural Tours, in partnership with Santa Cruz Center of Botanical Studies, is offering a unique cannabis cultural immersion.
Our journey begins at Coastal Sun’s farm with a spread of appetizers & artisanal drinks followed by a presentation by Christopher Carr, founder of the Santa Cruz Center of Botanical Studies, on the
fascinating history & culture of cannabis in Santa Cruz County.
Then we will tour Coastal Sun’s extensive Greenhouse facility where we will learn about their unique approach of farming cannabis and blueberries using bioponics, which is combining biological farming with hydroponics. From there, we will board a bus and head out to Bird Valley Organics & neighboring Lifted Farms where their team of talented cultivators will explain the different methods for growing outdoor cannabis & the unique regenerative practices they utilize for top yields and healthy plants. We will also be learning about the variety of products they produce including flower, distillates, concentrates, edibles and whole-plant full spectrum oils, followed by A presentation where the staff of Therapeutic Healthcare Collective will talk about the necessary role that dispensaries contribute to the cannabis community as a source of education and access to unique products.
One can purchase separately for a cannabis inspired dinner by Chef Dare Arowe at Bird Valley Organics farm that will follow the farm tour. Along with live music and art, you can experience a menu of unique pairings utilizing terpene infused dishes with locally sourced ingredients. The dinner is BYO 420 friendly and all proceeds will be donated to a local charity.
