Joining Together and Working Together
The Alliance brings together the power of El Dorado County growers to make a positive viable legal market and at the same time assist in protecting communities from the effects of the cannabis illicit market. EDCGA 2.0 is now reincorporated and completely independent from the California Growers Association.
The Growers Alliance works collectively for the benefit of EDC cannabis businesses. The entire State licensing process and system is not set up for small farmers, it is set up for well-funded businesses that can afford to take their time through the process and even potentially lose money for the first couple years. It is our goal as the EDCGA to collectively make this process as inexpensive and quick as possible.
