Cannabis farming is complex, challenging and rewarding; however, the first thing is terraforming, also known as, preparing the grow site.

What is Terraforming

Terraforming or terraformation (literally, “Earth-shaping”) is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology of a planet, moon, or other body to be similar to the environment of Earth to make it habitable by Earth-like life.

In this case, we are referring to transforming the grow site from a tree-stump and rock-strewn field into a grow site suitable for cannabis farming.

Is Higher Better?

Happy Travelers Tours grow site is located near the summit of a local mountain in the Sonoma Valley and is situated at 2,700 feet above sea level. The question of being ‘higher’ gets to these factors:

  • Quality of sunlight
    • Not only is the sunshine above all the haze which fills the Valley, it shines on our grow site all day long, provide the cannabis plans with a full day’s worth of sunlight during the grow season (late April through October)
  • Above the Fog and Haze
    • Since the site is 2,700 feet up the mountain, it’s above the fog and haze which fill the Valley during the Summer months. This means better seasonal sunlight more consistently through the grow season

What does it all Mean?

For cannabis farming, it’s all about the ‘micro-climate’ and ‘terrior’ of the grow site. The more sunshine and the healthier the soil the better for cannabis farming.
