The Art of Cannabis Cultivation.
Somerville residents Scott Glanzman and Cathy Reuben will give a crash course on the basics of growing marijuana (cannabis) in your home or back yard.  We will begin with a brief summary of applicable law and then move quickly to the nuts and bolts of cultivation.  We will review the various growing stages from seed to harvest, and share tips on light, water, food and common mistakes.  Scotty and Cathy, both lawyers, have lived in Somerville for over 30 years. Scotty is a lifelong gardener and has successfully grown marijuana in Massachusetts.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.
