Myrtle Clark – Fields Of Green For All

Myrtle Clarke is Managing Director of Fields of Green for ALL, South Africa’s first cannabis
legalisation non-profit company. She is also one half of The Dagga Couple. Myrtle works at local and
international level to promote a smooth transition to legal cannabis for ALL South Africans.
She graduated BA(Fine Arts) Hons HDipEd, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in
1989. She was a High School Art Teacher at Parktown Boys’ High School, a Lecturer & Sous Chef
at Prue Leith College of Food & Wine, Pretoria and a Freelance Art Director in Film and Television.
Since being arrested on cannabis charges in 2010, Myrtle, together with her partner Julian Stobbs,
has been passionate about creating awareness around the vital role that Cannabis Culture can play
within South African society and is active in campaigning for an end to the arrest of hundreds of
citizens every day.
“Fields of Green for ALL” is a platform that serves as a clearing house for information in the cannabis
constituency in South Africa. It serves as an information and activity exchange and as such is an
evidence provider for the Trial of the Plant. As the members and affiliates of our Non-Profit Company
go about their various responsibilities on the road to legal cannabis in South Africa, I work with our
amazing team to consolidate and manage the process. We are working towards a change in public
policy with regard to Cannabis Laws in South Africa. As The Dagga Couple we use our public profile
to spread awareness and education around our favourite plant. We are suing 7 SA government
departments in our personal capacity and campaign for all others arrested for their use, cultivation
and trade in this plant to join us in court.

LEADING MEN AND STRONG WOMEN
It’s said that the more things change the more they stay the same. This is certainly true with the music of our lives.
Popular music is a sea, and likewise has tides and currents that recur. Types of musos also recur – despite generation or genre, there have always been leading men and strong women. Join Sean for a chilled meander, across space and time, featuring a few of our beloved icons, timeless classics and a good story or two.
