US (PA): Griffin to host cannabis growers’ workshop in September

Griffin will host an educational workshop for medicinal marijuana growers on September 26 at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Penn. The half-day program will include three seminars, presented by members of Griffin’s GGSPro technical services team.

“The workshop includes something for cannabis growers at every level of expertise,” explains Tami Van Gaal, division leader for controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) at Griffin. “The program will help new growers get a solid start in crop production. Experienced commercial growers will gain insights to help improve yields and production efficiency.”

The workshop will begin at noon with a catered lunch. Educational sessions will follow on the topics of sanitation, crop fertility and pest control. The latter will focus on scouting techniques and the use of biological control agents (BCAs).

“We’re seeing strong demand for production advice in the cannabis market,” Van Gaal continues. “Our intention is to equip growers with foundational knowledge and best practices that they can apply right away to see immediate results in their grows.”

The Pennsylvania workshop replicates a cannabis growers’ workshop Griffin conducted on August 22 in Worcester, Mass. Timing of the Lancaster event coincides with the Griffin Grower & Retailer Expo, set for September 27-28 at the same venue.

Advance registration is required to attend the Pennsylvania cannabis growers’ workshop; online registration is now open. Cost to attend is $99.00 per person; group discounts are available. Visit for details and to register.
