    Doug Fine at Hemp is Hope Conference
    , Maui Hawaii

    As one of the first 15 states to authorize the reintroduction of the American hemp industry (and, as documented in HEMP BOUND, playing its own unique role in hemp history by hosting a rare federal study during prohibition), Hawaii on the state and private industrial level wants to be early out of the gate as the industry revives. Plus Hawaii needs hemp, for energy, for island-sourced human food and animal feed, and for soil remediation following centuries of sugar cane monoculture. Doug will keynote this one-day conference, speaking about the tri-cropping (three markets for each hemp harvest) model he blueprints in HEMP BOUND. The day will also include a hempcrete brick building hands-on workshop. More info on cost and location coming soon.
