The Story of Plantworks Cannabis
Honestly, you would have to be slightly insane to build an Urban Cannabis Microfarm. Yet we did, and here we are, living it. Anyone that knows us is not surprised. I suppose they know we are slightly crazy!
Why is it such a crazy idea? Many reasons: the massive corporate farm landscape; an ocean of product vying for limited shelf space; razor-thin margins; oppressive regulations and lack of traditional business support, we could go on and on.
These days, we are "essential" and, like everyone else, we are navigating ourselves and Plantworks through the sobering and scary realities of the COVID-19 pandemic; the rolling waves of massive social change; and the total and complete anxiety about the state of our federal republic. It has been very trying at times!
So why do we do it? We run this farm because we are driven by knowing we produce some of the cleanest and highest-grade craft cannabis in the state of Washington. For us, access to cannabis is more important than ever. Our goal is to put a stellar, pristine product on the shelf that is affordable and accessible to everyone. Plantworks is Flower for People.
Our story is of two people with a love of cannabis and a stellar work ethic, falling in love. One of our first dates was taking cannabis clones, and we began farming together from that day on. There is something awesome about being side-by-side with your best friend and partner, sharing a vision and growing this labor of love.
As we navigate 2020, we are grateful to be together here at the farm.
We bring years of experience to our farm: Jared as a long-time gardener and builder of cannabis farms, with a stellar mind for genetics development and nursery production. And Regina, with her roots as a caregiver, cannabis gardener and activist in Central CA and a background in plant science, genetics, urban farming and operations management. We both are life-long gardeners and workers who feel at home and at our best when growing our project, together.
Our lives are dedicated to providing consistent, unique, clean and potent cannabis flower that enhances every day life. There is no separation between us and our farm, we live this farm every day of the year. Every jar of flower is a direct line from us, to you. Our products are shaped by the virtues we value: integrity, honesty, a respect for the cannabis plant, a dedicated work ethic, attention to detail, a commitment to health and safety, and the continued search for unique and outstanding cultivars. Be well, and take care of each other!
