Itopia Life is embarking on this partnership with Evergrow and the unique team of local and international Grow Ambassadors to inspire more Jamaicans to start growing their own food and medicine, including ganja. Evergrow will provide Grow Ambassadors with start-up material and provide a per cent discount to all Itopia Life members that ‘Get Growing’.

Local ganja company, Itopia Life, commenced the ‘Get Growing’! campaign. It is an initiative that encourages the public to grow their own food and medicine from scraps and seeds as a sustainable, healthy living practice. It was launched on Labour Day to promote growing tomato, sweet pepper, ganja and other plants at home, with hopes that participants will have better nutrition, and new-found food freedom, by Independence Day!
