  1. Good day, my name is Ava Owens. I am a two resident of Lawrenceville Georgia. I’m sure you know that we are a prohibition state for marijuana. I would love to start a chapter here in Atlanta. I have been interested in becoming a marijuana entrepreneur for over 20 years now, but never had the finances or the connections to make such a move; and I’m not quite sure how much it would take to begin this venture. I would love to retire now but I don’t have a retirement income. I am a 61-year-old special education teacher, who was forced to start life over again here in Georgia. 2015, I was faced with divorce, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and repossession of my car and a job loss, all in a six-month period, in St. Louis, Missouri. My baby girl urged me to move to Georgia to live with her and start a new life. In September 2016 I buried my mother. She left my siblings send me a small inheritance and I currently have about $6000 left in my savings account that I could use to start the Women Grow chapter movement here in Atlanta. I know it’s not much but that’s my life in a nutshell. I would love to rub elbows with this organization. Please advise!!

    • I too am retired (66 years young) and I want to learn about and develop oils for medicinal use. I developed RA and I was amazed at the healing properties of CBD. Did you have luck making contact? I too am interested in joining WomenGrow.

  2. Hello, I want to change career and step a foot into the women grow industry. Would like to know if you are able to guide me the right away. I am currently located in Laveen Az. I could be reach via email at [email protected]
