We are excited to announce that VIMEA founder, Shango Los has been invited to speak at the upcoming Ignite Seattle! event on Nov 20th, 2013 at Town Hall. The topic will be "Embrace Your Local Pot Farmer." Find out more here: http://www.igniteseattle.com/
VIMEA founder, Shango Los testified in front of the Washington State Liquor Control Board last night regarding challenges to integrating legal marijuana agriculture into the social fabric of our community. He also pressed the Board and got the ruling rural growers can keep food crops inside the security fence with the pot because as farmers we know that an 8 foot fence isn't security as much as a big deer fence!
VIMEA received an enthusiastic reception by Vashon farmer's market shoppers today. Surely the sunny and warm weather had a role to play in that. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello. Based on what I am hearing so far, I think island pot farmers can expect a very positive welcome. The #1 response I got today was, "It is about time this happened."
