Millennials, Migrant Labor, and Marijuana: An Interview With Eli Atticus Jager ( Part I of II)
BURLINGTON, Vt. — There are no shortage of interesting conversations in the cannabis community, but the interview with Eli Atticus Jager is one of the most interesting. The Chittenden County native presently lives in the Seattle area and is an artisan, a writer, a creator, a deep thinker, an occasional DIY van-builder/dweller, and a heady individual in all positive senses of the word. Check out his website and design house, Welcome.Hone online here.
Via an introduction from the always-inspiring folks at the Karma Bird House, Eli will be joining Heady Vermont as a contributor where he’ll be sharing some of his impressions and experiences as a first-time ‘trim-migrant’ who recently spent a few weeks at an undisclosed location in northern California at an unlicensed cannabis farm.
The word ‘Trim-migrant” is a more more familiar phrase on the West Coast, where everyone knows someone who’s gone to work as a seasonal laborer trimming the massive harvest of outdoor and greenhouse-grown ganja, typically in the fall.
