The avant-garde (/ˌævɒ̃ˈɡɑːrd/; French: [avɑ̃ɡaʁd]; from French, "advance guard" or "vanguard",
are people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox with respect to art, culture, or society.
Characterized by nontraditional, aesthetic innovation and initial unacceptability, the avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm.
The avant-garde also promotes radical social reforms. It was this meaning that was evoked by the Saint Simonian Olinde Rodrigues in his essay "L'artiste, le savant et l'industriel" ("The artist, the scientist and the industrialist", 1825), which contains the first recorded use of "avant-garde" in its now customary sense: there, Rodrigues calls on artists to "serve as [the people's] avant-garde", insisting that "the power of the arts is indeed the most immediate and fastest way" to social, political and economic reform.
AVANT GARDENS NW
Avant Gardens was founded by brothers, Todd & Brad. Taught to grow this powerful flower by their mother Fern, a staunch plant medicine advocate, Brad & Todd cultivated a deep respect for this potent plant. With Washington's legalization shift, they have dedicated themselves to growing cannabis, inspired by their mother's belief in this herb's powerful ability to build community, and support deep healing and self-exploration.
L'artiste, le savant et l'industriel
Avant Gardens is here, addressing the need to have a cannabis company that captures the true essence of this movement. Creating synergy between the values and unique offerings from the industrialists, scientists and artists within our communities.
As a budding enterprise, many ideas have been seeded, and we can't wait to share them with this incredible community.
Avant Gardens is always striving to evolve and expand our ability to reflect the desires of our community of radical change makers and cannabis connoisseurs. We know that this endeavor will be a labor of love, challenging us to grow and become better all the time.
Evolution is a dynamic process, and all phases are valuable. We were once young and filled with radical ideas, but still, contend with the dominating paradigms of the world today. So, we have to start somewhere. So here's what Avant Gardens is doing differently to be leaders in the industry.
