Growing Green Videos & Monthly Workshop Series

Did you miss SYRCL’s Growing Green for the Yuba Workshop on April 30th? Check out the entire program below!

SYRCL’s vision is that people will see that well-regulated agriculture – which is what cannabis cultivation could be – should not harm water quality, fish and wildlife.
