It was Carpinteria’s biggest weekend of 2019. We spent 20 hours meeting thousands of fine folks who love avocados and farming. The dots were not hard to connect between Carpinteria Valley’s ingrained farm culture and the newfound love for the newest local ag product … cannabis.

At California Avocado Festival, which benefits dozens of local nonprofits, we introduced the “Cannabis Quiz.” Those who answered correctly earned a CARP Growers T-shirt, until we gave away all 200! We moved on to handing out merchandise from our members, who sent volunteer crews all weekend. Such a blast!
