Document Description
CDFW's Cannabis Restoration Grant Program awarded Sun and Earth Certification, Inc. a grant (Agreement #Q2291201) for the Sun+Earth Capacity Building Grant (Project). The purpose of this Project is to systematically evaluate and gather information about approximately 50 Sun+Earth certified cannabis farms to identify, plan and design high-priority, viable, restoration projects. The project activities will focus on gathering sufficient data about the Sun+Earth Certified farms to then submit a proposal for shovel-ready implementation projects that will help cultivators overcome barriers of transitioning from a provisional license to an annual license and/or help them enhance their sustainable cannabis cultivation practices. Twenty-four farms in Humboldt County, twelve farms in Mendocino County, six farms in Nevada County, two farms in Sonoma County, one farm in Trinity County, and one farm in Lake County are proposed for evaluation for participation and as potential candidates for future implementation projects as outcome of this grant project.
