The Regenerative Cannabis Farm Award is not designed to demonstrate the polarity between types of agricultural, nor is it designed to award one farm with a higher status over all others. The RCFA is designed solely to share information and inspiration that will hopefully create more resilient communities, economies and environments.
Regenerative Cannabis Farms demonstrate that through constant observation and integration all systems can obtain abundance both ecological and economic. With some self regulation, diversity, valuing the marginal and producing no waste we can achieve resilience by responding to change with small, slow solutions.
RCFs demonstrate that there is no difference between friends and family, environment and economy, and compost and soil.
We believe that how we cultivate cannabis, how we treat and value everything within and beyond the cultivation area is directly related to the quantity and more importantly the quality of the cannabis that is grown.
The Regenerative Cannabis Farm Award is designed to be a catalyst of positive competition filled with information sharing, land stewardship, ethical marketing, watershed consciousness and love of nature, living soil and biodiversity. The goal of the award is to educate people about what regenerative cultivation techniques are and how they can be adopted to help us grow the highest quality, pure medicine that truly expresses the terroir of the farm.
If your farm operates with these principles of environmental and community ethics at its heart, please review the process, geographic range (see image) and complete the application. For more information related to regenerative practices visit our PRACTICES page. We feel the need to point out that few farms live up to the standards created for this competition. It is our hope that these difficult standards are viewed not as an impossible bar, but a goal for improvement for years to come.
Whether you enter or not, come join us at the Emerald Cup in California!
The future, as was the past, is Regenerative.
