Compliant Farms is a collaboration between Hollie Hall & Associates, LLC and High Tide Permaculture to provide consultation services designed to establish environmentally regenerative cannabis farms as a cornerstone of watershed, social, and economic health. We work with cannabis farmers to go beyond compliance and become unquestionable models of watershed sustainability. It is our goal to establish the Compliant Farms Certified label as a trusted indication of agency compliance and fish friendly farming practices.
Compliant Farms recognizes the opportunity for our communities to move beyond the trend of boom and bust natural resource extraction. Guided by permaculture principles and focusing on individual efforts that have great, cumulative effects, as a community we can participate in the process of adaptive land management for a regenerative future. Compliant Farms was formed as the cultural, regulatory, and ecological worlds of small, private cannabis farms collided. Through the design and implementation of site-specific management plans they facilitate an approach for the community to become better land stewards.
We also administer the Watershed Fund, which is completely funded by contributions from Compliant Farms’ clients, who through their generosity support this grant fund. Housed at the Humboldt Area Foundation, the Watershed Fund supports collaborative, action-based projects that integrate community education and science to support healthy watershed communities.
Who We Are
Hollie Hall, PhD
Hollie Hall is a soil and water scientist who provides cannabis farmers the support they need to successfully transition their farms into regenerative agricultural systems, designed to be both environmentally compliant and water secure. From design to implementation, she coordinates “beyond compliance” solutions for cannabis farms by drawing from her 20 years experience in natural resources management, global studies of agricultural practices, and training in adaptive water resource management.
Working with government agencies, non-profits and the private sector, Hollie helps integrate the needs of society, government, and the environment through her work. She drives forward the establishment of successful cannabis farmers who implement watershed-friendly practices, which reverse the negative impacts of historic natural resource extraction practices.
Hollie works toward securing a future in which cannabis farmers who work to support watershed and community health are in return supported through recognition of their effort and through the appropriate marketplace value of their cannabis.
