When you think of Snoop Dogg gardening, a very specific type of herb probably comes to mind — but as it turns out, the veteran rapper is actually an all-around green thumb enthusiast, and he’s donating some studio time to prove it.

Snoop is hosting an auction to help raise money for Urban Growing, an organization dedicated to expanding the growing urban gardening movement. The prize? The chance to sit in with Snoop during a studio session (and catch a ride to the studio in a “pimped-out car,” of course).

The auction proceeds will also benefit another cause near and dear to Snoop’s heart: his youth football league, which will receive 10 percent of the donations. Both organizations stand to make out pretty well when it’s all said and done — the top bid for the auction, which doesn’t end until August 3, already stands at a robust $6,000.
