Dirt to Dispensary Workshop Series

The Sonoma County Cannabis Program is hosting an eight-part workshop series to discuss all aspects of the Program, including permitting, zoning, compliance, standards, inspections, enforcement, business planning, taxation and more. Those interested in starting a cannabis business, permitting an existing operation, or getting more detail about what is required of cannabis businesses are encouraged to attend. 

Prior to each of these workshops, relevant permit application forms and informational handouts will be made available on our website. 

Following the workshop series, the permitting agencies will be hosting hands-on permitting workshops to assist operators with their applications. Dates and times will be available shortly for sign-up.
