Out of the basement and into the light: We’re talking about growing weed in the garden!

From peonies to pot—Johanna Silver, former Sunset garden editor, will share her journey into cannabis and tell you everything you know to grow your own. Spoiler—she’s not a stoner. The presentation will include a brief history of the plant, one of (if not THE) oldest plants under human cultivation.

Myths and misinformation when it comes to cultivation, coming from 100-ish years of prohibition, will be discussed and corrected. Johanna’s approach is outdoor-only and garden-scale. She grows for a love of the plant, not with a goal of maximizing yield.

The techniques she most adheres to are those that are easiest, simplest, and most tried-and-true in the garden.
