During Viondy Merisma’s collegiate/professional football career he pursued a different craft, the cultivation of cannabis. Viondy first started volunteering in a small basement operation in Northern California while playing for the San Jose Sabercats of the Arena Football League (AFL), the 2015 Arena Bowl Champions. In 2016 his professional football career made its last stop to the Tri-Cities Fever of the Indoor Football League (IFL) in the Tri- Cities area of Washington State. This inevitably led Viondy to work with some great cultivators part-time (after practice).
In 2017 Viondy moved back to Massachusetts and finished the New England Grass Roots Institute’s curriculum; cultivation, cannabis science. With the experience and knowledge Viondy, the founder of The Green Torch, obtained, combined with his diverse colleagues, the group is well on its way to being a household name.
