VERSHIRE, Vt. — On the heels of a crisp autumn weekend at Vershire Riding School last Sunday, around 20 mostly-female participants from around the state  gathered for the September Women Grow Networking event, discussing policy, medical marijuana, business ideas and more in a relaxed mountain setting. Among the speakers was Will Allen, a Vermont farmer well-known for his success in pulling together the Vermont coalition that fought for GMO labeling, and who recently won a spot in Politico’s top 50 list of political influencers. Joel Bedard of The Vermont Hemp Company also spoke, and Evan Vicar of Empire Brewing was on hand with small-craft batches of homebrew, including a hemp ale.

The next meeting of Women Grow takes place on Thursday, October 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Vermont Farmers Food Center, home of the winter Farmers Market in Rutland. Speakers for the event are Vermont State Senator Jeanette White and Burlington entrepreneur Tripp Murray. Vermont Cannabis: Heady Vermont Watermark
