Ed Rosenthal Lecture

New Industry Solutions

Ed Rosenthal will teach time and energy saving strategies.  Be prepared to change your paradigm of harvesting and the technology available to the modern gardener. He shows you how to apply these technologies to save on staff, reducing energy and time, as well as preserving trichomes. Learn how easy it can be to move your ripe plants to the next stage, drying.

He will also demonstrate how to construct a dry room instantly. In six simple steps create a pop up drying area that you can keep outside or move inside to dry and cure. The process uses inexpensive materials and is easy to deconstruct for later reuse. Cut your harvesting time by 2/3’s or more. What was once a daunting task requiring tons of labor and effort can be accomplished quickly and easily.

Tickets to the Ed Rosenthal lecture will include an autographed new release copy of ‘Harvest’ 2017.
