Jackee Riccio lives in Humboldt County, California. While many of her friends pursued careers in cannabis, she completed her Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife Conservation and Management from Cal Poly Humboldt. She recognized early in her career that the community needed help. “I saw there was a great need in the cannabis industry for conservation and management for more sustainability.” She created an organization to address that need. In 2017, Riccio co-founded Cannabis for Conservation (CFC) with partner Dane Curry. The non-profit focuses on land management and ecosystem functionality for farms. Cannabis & Tech Today Executive Editor Patricia Miller spoke with Riccio to learn more about the program and how other communities can reduce the ecological impact of their cannabis farms.
