Humboldt Growers Association Launches Membership Drive
In 2010, the Humboldt Growers Association (HGA) was formed by local medical cannabis farmers who saw a need to give input on critical decisions being made at the county-level. These decisions affect many aspects of our community, including patient access, our local economy and public safety. It is clear that input and involvement is needed from those who know the industry best—the growers.
The HGA is a non-profit, member-based business association that promotes the sustainable cultivation of medical cannabis in Humboldt County. We work to develop programs and policies that promote safety and sustainability for legal cultivation of medical cannabis. Regulation of medical cannabis is occurring—our county officials are working on it right now—and we need the medical cannabis-growing community to have a voice in this process.
The HGA has acted as an educational resource for the County throughout the public process by providing input, changes, insights, and additions to the Humboldt County Planning Commission’s draft ordinance for medical cannabis cultivation in the unincorporated areas.
The HGA represents Humboldt’s medical cannabis growers and patients both locally and on a state-wide level. By representing and promoting our local farmers on a statewide level, the HGA is working to ensure that Humboldt’s cannabis farmers can successfully have a place in the larger medical cannabis market.
“We’re excited to get the community involved and have launched our membership drive to ensure that this important work continues. We strive to keep the growers’ voices heard in the inevitable changes happening, which takes extensive time, materials, and research. We cannot achieve these goals without the support of our members. Please join us and be a part of Helping Humboldt Grow.” – Joey Burger, President of the HGA Board of Directors
