This workshop will give you an introduction to the Cannabis plant and its many uses throughout history. We will look at the ways it has been used for medicine, what led to the many years of prohibition and the present day state in the legal market. From here we will dive into learning how to grow and take care of this special plant. Some of the things we will cover in this workshop include:
* What strains/cultivars grow well in this area.
* How to germinate seeds and when to transplant seedlings.
* Nutrients – How to feed and water your plants
* Various pruning and growing techniques
* How and when to harvest
* Drying and curing your flowers
* And much more……
This 4 hour workshop is designed to give you an overview of the cannabis plant and set you up for success in growing your 4 cannabis plants this summer. Come and learn with us and bring your questions as we look at what it takes to grow your own plants from seed to harvest.

Workshop is lead by Alexis Burnett. He is a Naturalist, Tracker, Herbalist, Wilderness Skills Practitioner and Canoe Guide from Orangeville, Ontario. He currently resides in the Owen Sound area, spending his days tracking, wild-crafting and running his Outdoor School and Wilderness Canoe Tripping company, Earth Tracks. Alexis is lead guide for the wilderness canoe trips and head instructor for all the programs and classes. Along with his wife Bobbi and two children, they also run a small scale herb farm (Rebel Roots Herb Farm) which specializes in organically grown and ethically wild-crafted herbs. Alexis is committed to mentoring and teaching others the skills that help us to re-connect with the natural world in an ancient and powerful way. By learning from nature through immersion and direct experience we begin to see and more importantly ‘feel’ the inter-relation of all things in the natural world. And from here we can begin to understand the important role that we all can play in protecting and preserving the Earth for future generations. Alexis has been practicing wilderness skills, engaging in herbal studies, pursuing naturalist/tracking studies, and guiding canoe trips for over 20 years, learning from people and organizations such as Tom Brown Jr., Jon Young, renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar, Wild Rose College and many others. Alexis teaches classes for people of all ages both for Earth Tracks as well as through various organizations. Some of these workshops have focused on such topics as Wilderness Survival/Bushcraft, Wildlife Tracking, Wild Crafting and Foraging, Herbal Studies, Naturalist Skills and Nature Connection Programming for children and adults. He is a leader in this field and his very diverse background coupled with his experience and skills allows him to offer a unique approach to teaching and mentoring.
