Look Out Oaksterdam–Cannabis College Opening in Garberville

Do you know your male plants from your female?  Do you know even more?  Could you teach others about what you know? A cannabis college is starting up in Garberville and they are looking for “qualified instructors for a basic class in cannabis horticulture, medicinal use, and law.”

According to their website, “[They] are located in the heart of the famous “Emerald Triangle” in its “unofficial” capitol city of Garberville, Humboldt County, California.  ”

They have yet to set up a class schedule (presumably they need instructors first) though they have a curriculum planned. And they have several events planned.  First they intend to introduce themselves to the community

~ June 18th, 2010, at the Garberville Town Square, from 11am-5pm:

We’ll be hosting an information booth at the Southern Humboldt Healing Arts Fair, sponsored by the SHHAA and Chataqua Natural Foods at the town square. We’ll be there to … answer any questions you may have about 707 Cannabis College, it’s activities, curriculum, and employment opportunities.

Then they are offering a cannabis festival.

~ July 10th, 2010, at the Mateel Community Center, from 12pm-6pmThe 707 Cannabis College Expo!

Join us for a festive afternoon of music, food, and interactivity as we discuss and share ideas about cannabis, health, horticulture, and the state of the herb. The event will feature vendors and non-profit participants, guest speakers, and most of all YOUR input. Got something to share? Come join us!

I’m looking forward to meeting the two women behind this  Donna King, Director of education and Kellie Dodds, President.  I’m curious as to where the classes will be held and who will be hired as instructors.  (Mr. Nice, I saw your bud at the Emerald Cup.  I think you should apply.)

  • It’s about time! Kudos to those taking this long overdue idea and running with it.

  • This is going to put a positive, simple, and deeply appropriate education out into the area. Consciousness will be raised-Further!

  • I would like to know if gratitude is taught as part of the curriculum or if that is assigned as homework.

    (Kym I hope you are kidding or confused about the Emerald Cup.)

  • A few years too late on the ” College” typical to Humboldt running behind the crowd, while trying to front another idea as your own. These were ideas that worked a few years ago and an old model isn’t a future, it’s the past.
    Then again, a “degree” from CR is worthless and counts towards nothing outside the area, guess it’s much easier to wear blinders and think you’re cool.
    Good luck, we’ll be waiting to scoop up your land when you losers are in foreclosure, because that’s exactly where you are headed.

    Napa of weed- HA HA HA HA….c’mon, really?

    • You seem so spiteful. If you live in Humboldt co., you should go look at Old Town or Bayshoe Mall. Take a minute to think about where money is coming from in this county. Logging and cattle industries are failing. Without the pot industry your job may disappear also. Then some investor from the Bay Area can scoop up your land. If you actually own any.

  • Garberville soon to be OFFICIAL pot capitol of America.

    Interesting news. I’m eager to see this endeavor actually take place. There should be plenty of possible experts for teachers in Humboldt County – don’t you think?

  • Will I receive college credit? I have my BS degree in BS, but I need extra credit. I hope to become a PHD in BS, If that’s possible. With a PHD in BS I can teach BS at the college level. I’m thinking that I can just work right out of my back door right here at home. My back door opens onto the Garberville Town Square.

    I think that I should inform you that there is a group of people getting a head start on your weed symposium right now. They have a pretty good cloud of green smoke blowing away from them. (;-I ) That’s the best I can do with one of those little winky symbols…

  • All kidding aside, I think that a certificate would be cool! People might come from miles around to receive a degree in Marijuana cultivation from the heart of the Emerald Triangle.
