From April 13-22, 2018, Humboldt Green Week brings people from all over to celebrate nature, cannabis, and community.
Humboldt Green Week is a manifestation of culture advancing the ideals of our community while building bridges, honoring the environment, supporting the local economy, and promoting music, art, and solutions through action. The events showcase a week of gatherings to celebrate Earth Day and this special place we call home.
While the real 420 fest known as Cannifest has been delayed due to new laws, Green Week will still celebrate all things green.
A Different 420 Fest
Humboldt Green Week can’t really be compared to other 420 fest events like the Cannabis Cup, Dope Cup, and the like. While these other events focus solely on cannabis, Green Week merely includes it as an aspect of nature. While people appreciate their cannabis during the week long event, they will also learn about the environment, sustainability and community stewardship.
The week is full of different classes and activities for people to participate in, from cannabis yoga to cooking classes, concerts and farmer’s markets.
A week for everybody
Organizer of Green Week and the 420 fest Cannifest Steve Geider talked with Chip about what the week is about:
“Everything from bee keeping workshops to healthy eating workshops to music workshops for kids, families to interact. We showed some folks how to do their own compost at home and a number of other different things, or medicinal teas. All types of things that are just part of our community, part of our subculture if you want to call it that. That are also just the part of the way we like to see the world change.”
Green Week has events for everybody including children, making it a family friendly event that can get everybody in the community involved and more conscious of the environment.
Steve is also the founder of North Coast Horticulture Supply and Humboldt Wholesale, making him a well-known and respected member of the community.
Green Week 2018
This year’s Green Week boasts a plethora of different events and activities for locals and visitors to enjoy. Event-filled days start as early as 7 AM and some events go until 8 PM. While the events will be fun and educational, the main purpose of Green Week is to bring the community together.
With or without a full-blown 420 fest, Green Week’s focus is on the community and the environment. With one of the largest farming populations in the country, Humboldt boasts a community that is very connected to nature. When they all come together and share their ideas, sustainability practices and new innovations with each other, everybody wins.
While the event takes place in California, Cannifest may soon be hitting the road and going national! We could soon see a Cannifest in Denver.
