Join Ravenwood Gardens for the Smoke U.P. – embrace the stigma event this Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th. It may be that legal marijuana never does shake its stigma but at the Smoke U.P. – embrace the stigma event they are providing horticultural therapy, small business led educational workshops, guest speakers, and more. Founder of Ravenwood Gardens LouAnn Bates says, “although we are not literally smoking, sharing, and selling; we’re not a dispensary at Ravenwood Gardens. We are a place that wants to provide garden therapy and education.”

Bates says, “the dispensaries that are coming to Ravenwood they want to educate and they don’t want to do anything wrong.”

Cost per ticket is $50 with only 250 tickets being sold. For additional information about the event, please contact Ravenwood Gardens at 715-923-9362 or visit their website at
