The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and Mendocino County have teamed up to hold a series of cannabis technical assistance workshops in August and September.

These technical workshops are ideal for new and legacy farmers as well as cannabis consultants. Mendocino County’s permitting staff and CDFW’s cannabis program staff will be available to discuss project specific technical questions, compliance and cannabis grant program opportunities. Representatives of the Department of Cannabis Control and the State Water Resources Control Board will also be available.

“It’s great to be partnering with Mendocino County to help cultivators through the permitting and licensing process,” said Corinne Gray, CDFW’s Acting Cannabis Program Director. “We look forward to meeting with the community, answering questions and helping cultivators move toward obtaining annual licenses.”

Cultivators and consultants from Mendocino County are welcome. Meetings are by appointment only and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Once someone is scheduled for a meeting, a confirmation email will be sent with instructions on what to bring to the appointment.
