Let’s set the record straight about hemp!
Join us for an evening of networking and discussion around all things hemp. And by that, we mean non-drug, industrial hemp that can be made into nutritious super-foods, textiles, sustainable building materials, and more!
Wednesday, June 8th / 6 to 9PM
The Beet at Ellwood Thompson’s
When you hear “hemp”, the connotation for many is marijuana, but American Hempsters want to change the conversation and challenge you to think of agriculture, industrial applications, and empowering the small-scale farmer.
This events marks the start of Hemp History Week, a national campaign that aims to educate and promote hemp as an agricultural resource to be grown in America. We’ll have speakers from the hemp industry, including Marty Phipps of Old Dominion Hemp, discussing their experience in the industry and the emerging markets that offer a great opportunity for American Farmers and Entrepreneurs. American Hempsters will be offering samples of ‘hempasta’, a hemp flour pasta made in collaboration with local favorite Bombolini Pasta. To better understand the industry, obstacles, and opportunities faced by hemp advocates and growers, we’ll also show two brief films to help entertain and educate: Hemp for Victory and Owe Aku Bring Back the Way
