Hello, I live in west-central Illnois. Never anything CBG related going on around here. I'll be at the St. Louis Festival on June 7. Looking forward to meeting a lot of you!

Hello, I am out here in St. Louis…there's going to be a workshop here February 22, 2014.  I can't go because of surgery, but thought I would shout it out if anyone didn't know.

St Louis Fest is scheduled for 06-07-14. Still working on details but we got the date locked. And I think that Justin will be back again this year. Hope you can make it.
