Happy Harvest 2020!!

Greetings to all my fellow farmers, stoners, artists, and growers from Northern California! The fields are swollen with grapes and cannabis while workers bond with plants to get the job done. I am on my tenth harvest of the year and feel ready to sit at my desk and complete a whole book just on the 2020 season alone. From COVID befalling us and the United States government deeming farmers and cannabis workers essential employees, to not being able to attend festivals, cups, or gatherings to share my artwork with the world, it’s been a trip. I am so proud of The Gate Girls of Northern California for continuing to grind on our careers and also raise money for charitable causes in Humboldt and beyond. Between September and October, we raised over $1,200.00 for The Family House in San Francisco, a family who lost all their belongings and home to the Sierra wildfires, and two children suffering from Leukemia in Humboldt county. I thank all of our supporters who purchase our calendars, share our posts, follow us on social media, and comment on our posts. It helps The Gate Girls and myself raise awareness for our causes and share our stories living within the cannabis community. Have a wonderful and safe harvest!

How can we help?

Things on the farm aren’t always rainbows and green grass. There are some tough times out there, and here with The Gate Girls of Northern California, we like to listen. The Gate Girls was started to create an online social club for women who work or have worked behind a gate who wish to share their story. One of our missions is to help people suffering from domestic violence in our communities. If you are, or know someone who needs help, we will listen and do our best for immediate assistance. That includes…GAS MONEY, GROCERIES, A RIDE SOMEWHERE SAFE, A SAFE PLACE FOR A NIGHT, A SAFE SPACE TO TALK AND REMAIN ANONYMOUS.

The Gate Girls donate their time participating in photo shoots, events, and spreading awareness about our causes through social media. Each sale of our 18 month calendar goes toward helping folks in our communities. Thank you to everyone who supports us and purchased a calendar, it helps with our forward momentum to do more with our resources. If you’d like to purchase a calendar, go ahead and click on our PRODUCTS page. Thank you all and have a wonderful weekend!

The Gate Girls of Northern California

The Gate Girls of Northern California is an online social club for women who have currently live/work behind a gate. We gather every so often to take photographs which are used in our calendar to raise money for women and children in NorCal. We support one another and our community while also working in cannabis and raising our families and careers. Every day another woman reaches out to us to talk about being a female cannabis cultivator and to join the bond we are creating. We have helped women with gas money, groceries, shelter, fleeing domestic violence, and donating to organizations with further outreach. We are currently raising money with our third calendar for a child fighting leukemia in Humboldt County. We appreciate everyone who has shared our photos, followed, liked, purchased a calendar, slapped our stickers around, and sent kind messages. Thank you all very much

Hello There from Quarantine!

Hello and greetings from Northern California! My sincerest apologies from my absence to my blog as I have had harvest, shelter in place, and fire evacuations hustling myself and computer county to county. I appreciate everyone who has reached out and updated me on their lives, I love hearing from fellow stoners, artists, growers, and farmers. I hope everyone is handling the pandemic and smoky summer the best they can. I have new material coming through this fall as well as some pretty introspective cartoons and articles on an ever changing cannabis industry. Stay safe my friends.

Greetings from a Safe and Happy Harvest!

Hello family, friends, artists, growers, farmers, and fellow stoners! I hope the 2019 Harvest Season treated you all well. I feel satisfied with the last few weeks, although a tad bit sticky and freckled with bug bites. I reemerge into society bearing comical content for my next book due out shortly.

Before the second book drops, our 2020 Gate Girls Calendar will be available for purchase next week. I am so excited to share with our fans the newest members of the Gate Girl family, all Ladies of the Cannabis Community and all helping to raise money for Childhood Leukemia through our Calendar sales.

Thank you for looking, sharing, liking, and following my posts, I couldn’t make any of this happen without you! Take care!


Hello my fellow Stoners, Growers, and Artists! I have been hard at work on new Watercolor Portraits, Stoner Comics, and the 2020 Calendar “One Gate at a Time, The Gate Girls of Northern California”, our third edition. The last six months have been a whirlwind of activities to grow my small story into a community. The success and support I have received gives me the confidence to rage toward my next book, my next calendar, and the next print drop in my Etsy shop “TheFarmTrap”. Thank you to my fans, and stay tuned!


Greetings and welcome to One Tray at a Time, A Decade in the Cannabis Industry. Check out my Stoner Comic Strip beneath this post and make your way over to my Products page. I’m excited to announce I included my new watercolor prints, they come autographed and carefully shipped with well wishes and stickers. Also, check out the second edition of One Gate at a Time, The Gate Girls of Northern California 2019 Calendar. Thank you for looking, the support means so much to me.

Big Thank you to Gary Newman, a Graphic Designer based in Northern California who helps make all this possible. Truly the best at his craft, he has also taught me so much with this project that it’s helped me expand One Tray at a Time. It’s my dream to be able to share my work with the world and it’s cool to have Gary on the team.¬†www.garynewmango@gmail.com
