Hemp Construction in Missouri Postponed

For the past three months I have been taking level of interest for the Midwest corridor in regards to people who wished to take training in using industrial hemp for construction.  It is a standard practice in New Zealand and other countries but is relatively unknown here; which is why I wanted to train people to use it.

Unfortunately I have not received enough interest to justify the enormous cost of the training.  I had eight people contact me and declared that they had the money and time to invest in the training.  That number needed to double and then some to make it financially approachable.  I did everything I could to keep the cost as low as possible, but this was directly tied to the number of participants.

I will keep the data sheets that I have collected.  If anyone else is interested please contact me and I will keep you on the list.  I will update those interested every six months starting now about the possibility of the training.

If the numbers increase I will try to give everyone a three month advance notice to aid in the planning.

Thank you for your support of industrial hemp.

Keep up the fight!!

  1. Besides for food, hemp is used for building. Making houses from hemp - industrial hemp - not smokeable- can be part of the solution to make soil better and decreases CO2 emissions. Traditional buildings are 50% responsible for CO2 emissions. Hemp buildings can even be CO2 negative. And the qualities of a hemp house are extreme well: breatheable walls, good isolating which results in a healthy inner climate. See the free hemp report:
