Giving Back

There is no Can't in Cannabis

We as a cannabis business want to bring awareness to the land upon which Vermont’s Craft Cannabis is grown and its stewardship throughout time. In acknowledging and honoring those who cared for and farmed the lands of Vermont before we did, we have the opportunity to give back, educate and raise awareness to help better the land of Vermont. We are here to show unified support and appreciation for the Indigenous Communities and the land that has been taken from them.

 

 

Our mission is to raise awareness about the issues confronting indigenous communities and to partner with them in developing strategies to address their needs. We are working to build relationships that connect indigenous groups with business and nonprofit organizations that can help generate and leverage critical resources. We are honored to provide a bridge between our community and the indigenous people of Vermont, this nation and hopefully the world. We believe knowledge is power and if we work together, we can have a positive impact on the sustainability, health and wellness of Indigenous Communities.

SEPTEMBER 2022 – The Global Indigenous Fund created by Magic Mann created their first Global Indigenous Grant. A grant funded by members of the Vermont Cannabis Business Industry in hopes of providing the starting cornerstones for an Indigenous Community Member to join the Cannabis Community. In conjunction with the Pennywise Foundation, we look forward to the next step in the grant giving process and hope that we can return some of what was taken from them, back to the Indigenous Communities of our state and others in the United States.
