Dirt to Dispensary workshop series



The County of Sonoma is launching a cannabis industry permitting, taxation, and compliance program to assist cannabis businesses in preparing permit applications. Over the next two months, the county will host an eight-part workshop series, “Dirt to Dispensary,” to discuss all aspects of the program, including permitting, zoning, standards, inspections, enforcement, business planning, taxation, and more. Those interested in starting a cannabis business, permitting an existing operation, or getting more detail about what is required of cannabis businesses are encouraged to attend.

Workshops will be held on eight consecutive Wednesdays, from May 3 through June 21, 3-5 p.m.

Prior to each of these workshops, relevant permit application forms and informational handouts will be made available on the County website at sonomacounty.ca.gov/Cannabis.

May 3 – Sonoma County Cannabis Program Overview at the Glaser Center, 547 Mendocino Avenue, Santa Rosa.

All remaining workshops will be held at the Permit and Resource Management Department’s Hearing Room, at 2550 Ventura Avenue, Santa Rosa.

May 17 – Ordinance Standards and Best Management Practices Compliance for Cultivation

May 24 – Water and Wastewater

May 31 – Cultivation Infrastructure

June 7 – Manufacturing

June 14 – Dispensaries

Following the workshop series, the permitting agencies will be hosting hands-on permitting workshops to assist operators with their applications. Dates and times will be available on the website shortly, along with information on how to sign up.
