OUR GOALS


 

  • Create a seed library, open to any cooperative member, of landrace and heirloom cannabis seeds, thus preserving genetic diversity for future generations and increasing self-sufficiency by providing stock to our members to breed their own seeds.       

  •  Increase the economic security of all of our worker-owners by providing dignified living wage jobs, and sharing the economic benefits of the cooperative by maximizing revenue to increase dividends to our members.

  • Educate the California cannabis community on the benefits of worker-owned cooperatives and how to convert existing entities to cooperatives, instilling a vision of shared economic prosperity throughout the industry

  • Encourage an open source culture towards cannabis seed patenting, and maintain access to heirloom and landrace cannabis genetics in the public domain.

  • Foster community by providing a resource center for activism and education.

  • Engage in the political process by supporting candidates and legislation beneficial to workers, urban agriculture, small farmers, and socially and environmentally conscious cannabis businesses.

  • Train the next generation of urban farmers and cannabis cultivators while simultaneously furthering a commitment to ecological and social justice.

  • Become a positive face in the community for the legal cannabis industry by purchasing from and collaborating with other cooperatives and community organizations committed to social, economic, and environmental justice whenever possible.

  • Stand in solidarity with all oppressed people by remembering that an injury to one is an injury to all. Donate a percentage of revenue to pay for legal aid in overturning the convictions of those currently incarcerated for doing the exact same things we now have the privilege to do in a legal and dignified manner because of the hard work and years of struggle by those who fight against, and have had their lives affected by, cannabis prohibition and mass incarceration.

  • Spread the joy and positive benefits that gardening and growing plants can bring to all of us.
