It has taken several years to come together, and this past Sunday night the grand opening at a new school in Pasadena, aptly called “The Source”, found a warm and friendly welcome with new and old friends alike.

The brainchild of Lisa Chick, and utilizing a space graciously provided by Liz McDuffy (of MCC), The Source will offer classes in typically found at cannabis ‘colleges’ sprouting up, but only as part of a greater ecosystem relying on many healing herbs, and the positive space that healing comes from in the individual.

There will also be classes that cater to the ‘old-fashioned’ skills that many in America have lost, such as canning, preserving, and community building business practices.

“Tonight serves as a grand opening, and as a planning session for several upcoming events, including actions for Joe Grumine in Long Beach in the upcoming weeks,” says Ms. Chick.

“Establishing a community resource, a new school that can teach sustainable practices as well as go back to the ancient wisdoms and traditions is essential for our survival, not just economically, so taking an all-encompassing approach, applying a holistic model to treat not just the symptoms, but the source of any problem… it’s a shift in consciousness, a shift in our source so that we can be a source of positive change in the world starting at the  local level.”

A full schedule of classes will be available for download soon and Medical Marijuana 411 is a proud media sponsor of the school.

Cynthia Johnston and Susan Soares share smiles, as friendly and familiar faces gathered to celebrate the opening.
