Sun Cup 2019 Recap: From Auctions and Awards to Guest Speakers and More
On Saturday Lazy Bee Gardens and Washington’s sun-grown farmers gathered at the Seattle Glass Blowing Studio to celebrate the 2019 Sun Cup. The event, organized by the Washington SunGrowers Industry Association (WSIA), included guest speakers, a silent auction, catered food and of course — industry awards.
The event drew an estimated 150 attendees. Keynote speaker, living soil expert Jeff Lowenfells, discussed organic and sustainable farming. We also heard an industry update from WSIA’s lobbyist and background on genetics from breeder, Gas.
More than 25 competitors participated in the 2019 competition. i502 sun-grown farmers entered more than 100 products across 12 flower and concentrate categories. WSIA distributed products to judges blinded, for the exception of the infused joint category, so no “pay to play” in this competition. Confidence Analytics also tested the entries and for a second year in a row, all passed as pesticide free.
Lazy Bee Gardens felt honored to take home two awards. We won “Best Light Dep CBD” for our Remedy flower. In addition, we took home “Best Light Dep THC" for our Tesla Tower.
Thank you again to the WSIA for coordinating this special annual event. Congrats to all the winners, runner-ups and attendees. We look forward to seeing you next year!
