WINE TO POT--Mike Benziger, formerly of Benziger Family Winery, speaks to a crowd of around 50 people at the Solful cannabis dispensary.

Mike Benziger, formerly of Benziger Family Winery, speaks to a crowd of around 50 people at the Solful cannabis dispensary, as the featured speaker at a “Meet the Farmer” event on Jan. 25. Benziger runs Glentucky Family Farm on Sonoma Mountain, where he practices biodynamic farming. According to the Biodynamics Association, Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food, and nutrition.                                                                         

Solful CEO and co-owner Eli Melrod said the event was part of Solful’s commitment to education and supporting small purveyors of cannabis products. Four small farms participated in the Meet the Farmer event that focused on the importance of biodynamic farming and the positive effect the farming technique has on the environment. Participating farms included Moon Gazer, Full Circle and Radical Herbs. The event was catered by Handline Restaurant, which used produce from each of the farms. (Photo E.I. Hillin)
