Craig Medred: Human road kill


As some of you may know I’ve been hired on as a professor at University Anchorage Alaska to help develop and teach cannabis courses.

Our first course going on its second semester is CannaBasics! I still have room in my class for anyone that is looking to have a greater knowledge and understanding about cannabis regulation, law, history, cultivation and how to make some delicious infusions at home starting February 14th at 5:30pm.

Reach out to your student advisory or myself to get you all signed up. I have some amazing guest speakers coming in from the industry to share their wealth of knowledge and not to mention some exciting hands-on demonstrations. Everything from planting your first hemp seed to infusing food for your friends and family.

Feel free to message me with any questions!

Rove Co
Join Our Adventures and Meetups
Our story
I am a military spouse who LOVES living in Fairbanks, AK, but encountered many barriers and limited resources for learning how to safely explore the outdoors (especially with a spouse who was overseas our first 2 winters here). Navigating Alaska’s wilderness can be daunting, dangerous and intimidating to a point where people avoid the outdoors. I created Rove Co to represent a more accessible community and be a foundation in education for adventuring. I want all ages and skill levels to feel they have opportunities to be successful outdoors. Join our journey and community and Find Your Way Outdoors.
