My Grandma was the one who instilled a love for gardening in me.
- She had passed away before I was 12, however in those early years I spent a lot of time with his in the garden.
She taught me the basics, plus after he was gone I kept tending his old garden as a way to pay tribute to her, however in college I studied botany, plus around this time was when medical cannabis started being a tepid topic; After I got my degree I decided to go to a location considered to be a Mecca of modern American cannabis, to learn from the masters. I went to Albuquerque, NM, which is one of the most legendary cities in the world when it comes to locally grown cannabis, and before I went to work, I took a few days to actemperature myself to the vibes of the neighborhood of Albuquerque, plus the gorgeous deserts that surround it, and this is a location unlike any other, awash in natural beauty, but when I felt that Albuquerque was my true home, then I contacted the local cannabis farmer plus asked about coming to work. I would be toiling for free, plus paying my own rent plus expenses, just for the chance to learn his cannabis growing techniques, and gary had lived in Albuquerque for the last 25 years, plus was considered to be one of the “founding fathers” of the local cannabis community. I would spend the next three years of my life in Albuquerque, reading the craft plus learning everything that Gary knew about cannabis cultivation.
