"The idea and evolution of dry(land) farming go back to the 19th century, has been used in various parts of the world, and has evolved and adapted to the lack of moisture in certain climates. This type of farming uses land management practices that retain precipitation on the land, make use of the stored moisture in the soil, and cultivate crops without irrigation. Crops that have adapted to become drought tolerant and tend to be explosive in flavor and nutrition. To dive deeper into dry farming practices, I sat down with Rosie Reynolds (Sensiboldt Organics), Chrystal Ortiz (High Water Farm), and Jill VanderLinden (Organic Medicinals), three Sun+Earth Certified farmers who are multi-generational cannabis and food producers. These three amazing women are also leaders and frontline activists in the cannabis community and advocates for regenerative organic farming practices. Together, they formed the Humboldt Dry Farming Alliance in 2020 to educate farmers on the science and benefits of regenerative organic dry farming and to advance these important farming practices in the cannabis industry."
