The Growers’ Fair is open to the public, and the overarching goal of the show is to educate consumers, connect investors and explore business opportunities including the new employment market our industry has created. More than $65 million in tax dollars have been collected thus far and a percent of these dollars will help by funding education and important programs in Oregon. This is an opportunity to learn from medical professionals, master growers, bud tenders and all ancillary businesses in the industry.
Find that funding! Make those connections!
