Hollie Hall PhDHollie Hall, PhD, is excited to share her knowledge of sun grown cannabis with people from around the world at Burning Man 2018. The details of her hour-long presentation are included below.

Friday, August 31, 2018, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Feed your Soil, Save the Planet – In these dynamic times of the Anthropocene, human activity is driving degenerative change to planet earth and its protective atmosphere. Simultaneously the life giving soil of this planet provides massive carbon storage potential that if taken advantage of can mitigate climate change, reduce agricultural water use, and stabilize agrarian economies. While corporate food farms continue on with exploitation of soil, water, and people for the economic benefit of a few, the sun grown Cannabis farmers of America are coalescing under the pressure of vigorous environmental regulations to promote regenerative farming practices that if implemented at a landscape scale can save the planet. Join speaker Hollie Hall, to learn about regenerative Cannabis farming practices that heal planet and people.

Planning & Design

Water, land, and resource use planning and farm design with a holistic perspective of watersheds. The Compliant Farms team develops and monitors the implementation of plans that help farmers to take advantage of a property’s assets to improve soil fertility, water efficiency, and watershed health, while moving their farms beyond baseline compliance. Covering topics such as cultivation site suitability, integrated pest management, soil fertility, water security, rainwater catchment, regenerative farming techniques, our team specializes in taking your cannabis farm beyond compliance into excellence.

Consultation

The Compliant Farms team is available for consultation on the ecological aspects of your cannabis farm and associated land so you can make the most of your resources responsibly. Popular consultation topics include: water system design and compliance, holistic land management, soil fertility improvement, integrated pest management, watershed management, land use design, rainwater catchment systems, regenerative farming techniques, natural resources management, and cannabis farm compliance.

Compliance

We work with farmers to assess compliance with environmental regulations, implement plans for meeting compliance standards, and monitor progress toward achievement of a farming system that have positive, cumulative effects on the overall watershed. We specialize in compliance with the Water Board’s water quality programs, County environmental compliance, and California Department of Fish and Wildlife compliance., We take farmers beyond the mandated standards so their farms can continue to thrive for years to come.

Site Assessment

When the Compliant Farms team goes to a farm for a primary site assessment, we thoroughly inspect the parcel’s developed,cultivated, and adjacent wild land areas. It is our goal to empower our clients to understand how their activities can be integrated into a watershed-wide perspective. After the assessment is complete, we provide clients with a summary and a list of action items highlighting best management actions to be taken as soon as possible to reduce negative environmental impacts. We also collect information for water rights permitting, assess the need for California Fish and Wildlife permits and begin the development of a long-term vision.

Workshops

We want all farmers to benefit from the knowledge of regenerative farming practices and other techniques that save water, improve soil, and keep plants thriving. The Compliant Farms team offers workshops and livecast videos with DIY tips and advice for farmers on a wide variety of topics, including Last Minute Farm Winterization and Reducing Runoff.
