Hemp Concrete or hempcrete results from wet mixing a hemp plant’s shredded stem with a lime mineral-based binder to create a material that can be cast into molds then dried. These molds are commonly used in construction as insulation or some form of concrete. Hempcrete is different than other building materials like standard concrete, plaster, or mortar because of the void space between the mixed hemp strands. The limestone binder acts as an adhesive, setting the fibers permanently but not forming a complete solid.
Starting in 1792 during George Washington’s first term as president, The Old Farmers Almanac has become the longest-running periodical in United States history. While it has had a variety of topics and contributors over the years, it is primarily known for its weather predictions from a secret formula, witty humor, natural remedies, tides, a farming calendar, phenomena, helpful astronomy, and even lore. (An example of lore in this context would be to look out for puffy clouds on July 25th because that means we are in for lots of snow in the coming winter!)

Love of the hemp plant does not guarantee its success. But in order for a crop to be economically viable, it needs to be financially sustainable.
Hemp can be used for furniture, paper, clothing, rope, building material, birdseed, and even ice cream, so why isn’t it?
