ABOUT THE VENUE
For October only we are hosting the event in downtown Nevada City at the historic Nevada Theater, located at 401 Broad St, Nevada City, CA 95959. Conscessions will be available. Enjoy the selection of craft beers, fine wines & soft drinks. Please, no outside food or drinks allowed. All-ages are permitted to attend.
Thanks go to our event sponsor Triminator® for helping make this event possible.
Drawing on over 30 years of experience engineering woodworking and forestry tools, our founder designed a big marijuana trimming machine to increase processing speed with a patented trimming system to provide a precise and beautiful trim. After hundreds of hours of testing, growers were so impressed with the machine’s mechanical precision and raw speed they affectionately named it the Triminator®. It was built for maximum efficiency and finished with details that make every grower’s life a little easier.
Why should I attend?
Personal connections are the key to professional success. Through the wide variety of events offered to members of Women Grow, trustworthy business relationships sprout from the face-to-face interactions of our members. Together we have more power. As the cannabis industry grows on a national and global scale, women have the opportunity to build a new American industry from inception and redefine the workplace to create environments in which we can flourish and define our own destiny, and cultivate the next generation of industry leaders.
How can I get the most out of networking events?
We recommend bringing business cards and a pen to take notes. If you don't have business cards, check out Moo for 10% off your first order (and your first order supports Women Grow). Watch our video on networking tips from Women Grow founding members.
Where are there Women Grow events?
Women Grow events are held in small towns and large cities, in prohibition and legalized states alike. No matter where your county is on the road to legalization, you can have a Women Grow chapter. Learn more about starting a Women Grow Chapter.
Are there ID requirements to attend?
All Ages are welcome. Attendees must have a valid ID as many events occur in establishments serving alcohol.

Are events on different days other than the first Thursday of the month?
Women Grow networking events are on the first Thursday of each month (except for holiday weeks). Social events can be planned at other times. Women Grow's national events are held a few times a year. Make sure you're on the Women Grow mailing list to receive invitations.
Why do you charge for events?
Women Grow is funded by event proceeds and sponsors. We charge for our events so that Women Grow is a self-sustaining organization. If you are unable to afford an event, please contact the organizer to ask about volunteer opportunities.
Why should I consider a career in the cannabis industry?
A great way to connect with fellow participants is to use common hashtags when tweeting about the event. You can use the same hashtags on Facebook. Photos rock. Please share them if you take any!
