We decided to do a special 420 Episode on a solid community member and Bklyn Combine family, Floyd Jarvis. Floyd is a horticulturist/gardener and founder of the Canarsie Neighborhood Community Garden. In addition he also recently founded, Ganja War Veterans For Equity and acts as a major Cannabis Advocate in NY. Armed with knowledge and a passion for community, Mr. Jarvis walks us through his journey in farming and cannabis advocacy not to mention his deep knowledge of Rastafarianism and much more. We are the Brooklyn Combine, a non-profit community organization. We work with schools, community organizations, and dedicated city officials to help provide mentorship, critical education, leadership, and social support programs to youth and young adults in low-income and underserved communities.
