Directed by CJ Russo, Lady Buds tells the story of six women who, following the legalization of cannabis, leave the illegal underground market to carve out a place for themselves in the new commercial industry.
SYRCL’s Growing Green for the Yuba program aims to inspire the community to practice sustainable and ecologically sound cannabis cultivation in the Yuba River watershed. One way we achieve this is through education on Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Cannabis cultivation has been present in the Yuba watershed for decades and is expected to stay well into the future. Like many common agricultural crops, cannabis cultivation has the potential to affect local water quality and watershed health. In fact, the Yuba River has been designated as a “priority watershed” for cannabis issues due to severe impacts by egregious, illegal grows.
SYRCL launched a survey in March of this year to learn more about both community attitudes toward cannabis cultivation as well as opportunities and challenges cannabis cultivators face regarding the compliance process. Find out what what people had to say as well as our findings and recommendations.
