The Hemp University will host its final educational workshop of the year, “Post-Harvest Symposium” and the first ever Golden Grow Awards Gala in collaboration with the Southern Oregon Hemp Co-op and GreenLeaf Lab. The Golden Grow Awards Gala is a joint effort to recognize, evaluate and honor excellence in the industrial hemp field. The Post-Harvest Symposium will complete the 2019 hemp cultivation season on December 7, 2019, at The Schoolhaus Ballroom in Jacksonville, Oregon.
The event will begin with an educational symposium and will run concurrently with the Hemp Flower Exhibit & People’s Choice voting. The daytime event includes facilitated networking, the opportunity to speak with vendors, and a lunch buffet. The symposium is known as a space for cultivating a positive environment that allows members to meet, exchange information and forge alliances.
The Golden Grow Awards Gala will be honoring Oregon's top cultivars. The awards ceremony will put Oregon’s best farmers head-to-head in an effort to be awarded with some of the most prestigious hemp-industry awards. The first 40 high cannabidiol (CBD) flowers to be submitted will compete in categories such as top CBD, top terpenes, judge’s favorite and people’s choice. The exhibition and voting for winners will take place during the high-impact Industrial Hemp Symposium event which celebrates Oregon’s finest and best in Industrial Hemp. Submissions will be accepted through October 31st. The Golden Grow Awards Gala will also feature dinner, dancing, and beverages.
“The completion of the 2019 harvest season is a historic time for hemp farmers, the Company and the United States as a whole as this is the first year the lucrative crop is federally legal thanks to the Farm Bill 2018,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “We want to celebrate the hard-working and dedicated farmers of the Rogue Valley, which is an area that is becoming known as the Napa Valley of Hemp. This is such a unique area that is going to elevate the hemp industry and we believe the farmers who are making this happen deserve to be recognized through the Golden Grow Awards Gala.”
This will be the final Hemp University workshop of the year in celebration of the hemp harvest season. The educational sector of the Post-Harvest Symposium will include a host of industry leaders that will speak on sustainable success for Oregon hemp. The Post-Harvest Symposium speakers/topics include:
