Chrystal Ortiz is a permaculture gardener, cannabis medicine maker/educator and the Operations Manager at community cannabis brand True Humboldt and the Sun Growers Guild which is comprised of more than 200 Humboldt cannabis farmers following high standards and best farming practices . Born in Mendocino in the seventies to “Back to Lander” parents, she shares the core values of environmental sustainability, community service and mindful cultivation that formed the foundation of this unique culture in the Emerald Triangle. Leaving Mendocino as a young child, Chrystal spent her childhood years in an agricultural community on the border of Mexico in Southwestern Az where her mother worked in vegetable seed sales and production in large scale agriculture. Immersed in corporate agriculture and unsustainable practices, the lifestyle and culture of the rural homesteads in Northern California seemed like a distant fairytale. In the late 90’s Chrystal returned to the hills of Humboldt County and for the past 16 years, she and her husband raised their two children off the grid learning permaculture and farming techniques deep in the rural Humboldt mountains.
