Env sustainability and social justice research findings release event
June 30, 2021
In September 2020 the CCOE, our sponsor The Hub Craft, and our study partners Enlighten Your Grow, Trella Technologies, and UMass Dartmouth, launched the Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice Survey in an effort to better understand how legal cannabis cultivators across the USA and Canada are thinking about issues of environmental sustainability and its relationship to building a just and equitable legal cannabis industry. This anonymous survey will contribute to our shared industry goals of generating a data-driven understanding of current efforts and ideas related to corporate social responsibility, addressing the wrongs of the failed drug war, and reducing the industry’s energy and environmental footprint. We’re especially interested in learning what challenges and promising opportunities businesses are encountering as the industry develops.
You can read a short blog post about some of preliminary results and learn more about the issues here!

Host: Northeastern Sustainable Cannabis Forum
While cannabis farming has existed informally for decades in the northeastern United States, legally licensed farming of cannabis is an emerging opportunity. Organic farmer Ted Dobson has been farming cannabis for about 40 years, long before it was legal. In 2019 he completed the first successful season of legally licensed cultivation on his farm in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
Ted will share his experience as a pioneering farmer transitioning to the licensed market. He will discuss the wet New England climate, and the feasibility of sun grown and carbon farming strategies in addressing the global climate emergency, as well as issues relating to pesticides and water.
