Hemp Bound:

Sustainable Food, Energy and Economic Independence for Communities

 

A Live Event With Doug Fine

Could it really be true? Seventy-seven years of prohibition of one of humanity’s longest-utilized and most useful plants is ending? It is true. And just in the nick of time. Humanity desperately needs a natural fibers-based replacement for petro- and chemical-plastics, GMO-based foods, and fossil fuel-based energy.  Hemp is that replacement: two years of research by bestselling author Doug Fine shows that anything petroleum, chemicals and GMOs can do, hemp can do better. We’ll learn how to make it happen in the ground and in the economy.

This 90-minute talk and slide show (plus Q&A), culled from two years of worldwide hemp research that led to the book Hemp Bound, is a playbook for reviving the hemp economy through a vertical, locavore 21st– Century processing model called Tri-cropping (utilizing one hemp harvest for three applications: seed oil, fiber and energy).

European digital age fiber processing and biomass energy production techniques, Chinese textile modes, and, most of all, Canadian seed oil techniques, are combined to finally turn the modern hemp industry into both a profitable and a sustainable one. Value added hemp applications stay in the production communities. Tri-cropping is garnering interest from Ohio to Slovenia. 

Author, investigative journalist and solar-powered goat herder Doug Fine just researched this topic planet-wide, from Manitoba to Colorado. He begins the live event with a discussion of the architecture of the hemp plant's famed stronger-than-steel fibers, its nutritive superfood seed oil, and its potential as an energy source after 10,000 years of cultivation. The performance goes on to bring hemp's manifold digital age applications (and challenges) to large numbers of people who might (as yet) not be hemp-informed. The live event covers everything from the rigors of cultivation to hemp plastics and nanotechnology applications to nutrition to hemp construction. The slide show and talk details the economic, energy production, nutritional and environmentally restorative benefits of the plant to civilization worldwide.

DAY TWO WORKSHOP:

The Second Annual HEMP NOW FOR NEW MEXICO Event: A Game Plan For Bringing Hemp Back to New Mexico Soil

Doug Fine, New Mexico author of Hemp Bound and First Legal Harvest, Returns to Keynote Two Carbon Economy Series Hemp Workshops, in Santa Fe November 13 and 14, and in Fort Collins, Colorado March 28 and 29, 2016.

Hemp is back in the soil in 26 U.S. states, including Colorado. It almost returned to New Mexico last season. It must in 2016, bringing new, lucrative and last markets to farmers and soil healing and independence to everyone. Join us for the second Carbon Economy Series Workshops featuring renowned Southwest Author and hemp researcher Doug Fine.

Hemp’s comeback is real. The industry is growing 24% annually, and will cross the billon dollar mark this year in North America. Our farmers need this crop and the resulting industry. In Colorado, the industry, now in its third modern season is about to take off, and Doug will explain how: based on his work researching hemp farms and processors around the world for half a decade, we’ll learn the techniques and applications that are feeding this important industry.

Doug’s keynote at each Carbon Economy Series is part of a two day hemp-focused event. In addition, the workshop will include seminars and workshops, a regenerative, carbon-negative hempcrete building demo with renowned hempcrete builder John Patterson (http://tinyhemphouses.com/), a hemp-powered limo ride, industry networking, and strategizing for hemp’s legalization. No hemp or farming experience is necessary to join either Carbon Economy Series workshop.Santa Fe Keynote: 7-9 p.m., Friday, November 13, Full Day Workshop 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, November 14. All events are at the Jemez Room at Santa Fe Community College, 6401 Richards Avenue, Santa Fe, NM.

This two-day event would be exciting enough in that it marks Doug’s return to the Carbon Economy Series as New Mexico and the nation readies itself for the return of hemp. But this time, beyond the education, we’re beginning a push for New Mexico hemp legislation on Day Two of the event. Doug’s keynote on Day One begins the two day Hemp event that will include hempcrete building, the popular hemp powered limo ride, industry networking, and farmer planning.

Hemp has progressed from dream to reality. Come learn about Tri-cropping (Doug’s new economy concept that Willie Nelson calls “a blueprint for the America of the future”) and the coming hemp economy in a live event with bestselling author of HEMP BOUND and FIRST LEGAL HARVEST in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Can it really be true? Seventy-seven years of prohibition of one of humanity’s longest-utilized and most useful plants is ending? It is true. And just in the nick of time. Humanity desperately needs a natural fibers-based replacement for petro- and chemical-plastics, GMO-based foods, and fossil fuel-based energy. Hemp is that replacement. In his keynote and breakout session with field research from around the globe, Doug Fine shows that anything petroleum, chemicals and GMOs can do, hemp can do better. We’ll learn how to make it happen in the ground and in the economy.

What is Tri-Cropping? It is utilizing one hemp harvest for three areas applications that will benefit farming communities: seed/flower, fiber and energy.
