Experience BC’s Deep Roots:
StratCann’s Kootenay Farm Tour

Dinner: Friday, August 30 + Tour: Saturday, August 31st, 2024

The Kootenay Farm Tour is your weekend to experience and learn about the rich history and current cannabis practices in the fabled Nelson region of BC. 

You’ll engage with top-tier local cannabis businesses and operators, gaining exclusive insights into their production and processing techniques, along with a glimpse into the region’s unique product offerings.

Kick off your weekend with an optional Friday night dinner on our reserved patio at Pitchfork, to mingle with fellow travellers before boarding the chartered coach on Saturday morning.

On this tour, you’ll visit an indoor cannabis facility, an outdoor cannabis farm, a cannabis processor, and a retail store, to learn about the diverse cultivation and processing methods, the local growers and brands. Each operator will guide you through their facilities, sharing experiences and answering your cannabis questions along the way.

You’ll indulge in a catered picnic lunch at the scenic outdoor farm, and our knowledgeable local guide will share colourful tales and regional history during the coach ride back to Nelson, where you’ll experience a local retail store and learn about that side of the industry!

Tickets for this unique experience are very limited, secure yours now so you don’t miss out!

How other producers navigate outdoor growing…

As a cannabis producer, I am very familiar with my growing styles and environmental issues but seeing how other cannabis producers navigate outdoor growing brought me a new level of respect for the industry.
