Erin Gore
Founder & CEO
Garden Society


Erin Gore is CEO and Founder of Garden Society, a California-based, licensed cannabis-focused benefit corporation. Garden Society was born out of Erin’s desire to address the ongoing pain she experienced resulting from sports injuries, after realizing that her body could not tolerate the prescriptions provided by her doctors. After completing her degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006, Erin began a decade-long career with Henkel, where she managed a global adhesive business valued at nearly $100 million. Her time at Henkel provided a solid foundation in leadership, development, and achieving exceptional financial results. Originally from Wisconsin, Erin made Sonoma County her home in 2011.
