Humboldt Local, Inc. and Trim Scene Solutions present the season’s first Casual Crop eXchange Sunday, April 30, at the Trim Scene Solutions store in Redway. The Casual Crop eXchange is Humboldt County’s premier Cannabis farmer’s market.
The all ages event brings together educational speakers, equipment demos, local artists, fundraising for local non-profits, great food and a bounty of locally grown produce (of both the Cannabis and non-Cannabis variety). The alcohol-free event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the $5 entry fee goes to Community Cornerstone, a group dedicated to providing training and opportunities for adults with disabilities in Northern Mendocino and Southern Humboldt Counties.
What differentiates the Casual Crop eXchange from other farmer’s markets is the addition of a dedicated 215 area where you’ll find an array of local Cannabis products, a 215 doctor on site and a vendor-supplied dab bar. 215 area attendees can even vote in the Casual Cup extract and flower competition! All leftover meds from the competition will be donated to the Humboldt Local, Inc., Compassionate Care Program for Seniors, Veterans and eligible patients. Entrance is 21+ and requires a valid 215 card.
The April Casual Crop eXchange has scheduled educational speakers on a variety of topics. Casey O’Neil of Happy Day Farms, Emerald Grown and California Growers Association will give a political update on the state of legal Cannabis in California. Indra, holder of the patent on Closed Loop Extraction using solvents, will talk about the history of the process. And Luke Moser, Laboratory manager at CW Analytical (a cannabis testing lab in Oakland), will speak on pesticide and microbiology testing.
The event also features “Demo Row” where attendees can watch product get trimmed, kiefed and pressed with professional, state-of-the-art industrial equipment. This is especially helpful to small farmers as they can see how everything works before making an investment in a trimming machine or a rosin press. The April presentations include Resin Ranch Extraction demoing their static electricity Dry Sift technique, which sifts resin heads to 99.9% purity without the use of solvents or ice, Purge Labs’ Closed Loop basic operation and safety meeting, Soul Evolution Enterprise’s Bubble Hash making demo and Dia Damon of Nomad’s Landing doing a Korean Natural Farming Fermented Plant Juice making demo.. The dedicated Trim Scene Solutions staff are available throughout the day to answer questions about products and services available in the store.
And if that’s not enough, the April Casual Crop eXchange also features live music from DamShane and Gnarlock. Red Nose Glass will do a live glass blowing demo and Humboldt Vibe Tribe will paint a mural live. So be sure to join us on April 30th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All it takes is a $5 donation to enjoy our community’s best crops of all kinds! The event is all ages but the 215 area is 21+. NO DOGS ALLOWED. For more information email email@example.com.
See you at the eXchange. And until then, keep it casual!

Yeah, but that’s only because as a society we’ve become effete and lost the will to try new things just for the hell of it. In the 60’s they were trying things like nuclear propulsion, and they were walking on the moon. Then, something horrible happened in the early 70’s. I grew up then, and I could FEEL it. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what it was, but I think what it was, was a generation of kids who grew up with television instead of playing with gizmos, and who got into power and then just turned our society into a big mess of paperwork and lawyering, because paperwork was all they’d ever learned to do.
When I look at the physiology research done in the 60’s, it takes my breath away. The creativity of it! The things they did! I find my “new” ideas all the time in papers done in the 1960’s, but they never went anywhere (perfusion of organs with fluorocarbones to cool them, for example). One guy (the same guy in fact), before heart lung machines, repaired the hearts of babies by surgically cross-connecting them to the circulation of adult humans, who volunteered in order to save a life. Where has that kind of courage gone? Where are the Yeagers and the Goddards and the Microbe Hunters?
How come the heros of our movies are no longer Micky Rooney or Spencer Tracy playing Thomas Edison, or Paul Muni playing Erlich or Pasteur, instead Val Kilmer playing Jim Morrison and Woody Harrelson playing Larry Flint? And movies whose heros are lawyers. Arggh. I don’t care if it is Tom Cruise or John Travolta. And the rest of the movies seem to be re-creations of 60’s TV shows.
Paperwork and lawyering. Fixing and improving and advancing society by talk-talk, not building. A lawyer president and his lawyer wife. [ed: bubba and thecunt] Crises of power that don’t involve spy planes and sputniks, but incredibly complicated and deceptive word definitions and complicated tax frauds. You think we’re not preparing to go to Mars because SF is too optimistic? Sure. But it was optimistic about whether or not the can-do engineering of the 40’s and 50’s, done by the kids who’d grown up playing with radios and mechanics in the 20’s, was going to continue. Needless to say, it didn’t.
I’ve seen a late 1950’s book of science fair projects for teenagers that include things like building your own X-ray machine and cyclotron (no, I’m not kidding– it can be done). There are rockets in there, and cloud chambers, and all kinds of wonderful electronics stuff. But we didn’t go that way. Instead, we turned our children into little Clintons, and our society into a bunch of people sitting at PCs, entering data about social engineering, not mechanical engineering. So instead of going to Mars, we went instead to beaurocratic Hell. Enjoy, everybody. It really could have been different. Nature didn’t stop us – WE stopped us.
(God, look at me. I’m well on the way to being Uncle Al)

Son, they can have every fucking thing on earth and they will never be satiated because they don't have the stars. They will have the stars and want galaxies, they can have galaxies but want the entire universe. They would bend God himself to their will and cuck him. There is no limit. There is no filling the howling black hole in the center of their being. To try is a fools errand. You just have to subjugate them or enjoy them for a little while and move on. These days, it's enjoy and move on.
