Our Mission

The FLWR CITY CUP is an annual cannabis competition, curated to build community and raise funds for reinvestment in community development initiatives. The root of the FLWR CITY Harvest Cup competition is to engage cannabis consumers and stakeholders in building community and raising funds for initiatives we believe in. Our vision is to prove that Cannabis Used Positively can build up communities to create a lasting impact. Through these events, we aim to raise money and resources to fill the "cup" - with funds and share it back with the community

 

The 2021 FLWR CITY “Harvest Cup” is an event celebrating the completion of the 2021 Harvest season, and stressing the importance of New York cultivated cannabis flower for the both the NY farming community and consumers.  

It is the belief of the organizers that flower - as a farm product and a consumer good - Is an important Social and economic resource for the NYS community in such trying times. We believe that for the MRTA to have its truest impact, legacy market operators and small farms must have a chance to participate in this economy. The time is now.  

 

We thank you for your support and look forward to celebrating the 2021 Harvest with you all !
