Educational Potluck #14 - HEMP & the rEvolutionary Growth of a New Industry

NEW LOCATION Our next Educational Potluck will be March 14th at 6:00 PM at The Garden http://thegarden-parkhill.com/ at 3435 Albion St., Denver Jason Lauve with Team Hemp teamhemp.com will talk about industrial hemp (no, not marijuana). Its coming to the U.S. is like the telephone, car & internet all being invented at the same time. Literally thousands of products (food, clothing, building materials, cosmetics, auto & aerospace parts, plastics, rope, paper, oil, fuel, etc.) can be made from hemp. George Washington pushed for the growth of hemp, which he grew himself, as did Thomas Jefferson. The 1st drafts of the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution were written on hemp paper. It has the potential to be a very worthwhile cash crop that can be grown without pesticides & can contribute to sustainable farming. It can bring back farming as a growth industry & due to being the feed stock for thousands of products, can be a huge job creator. Come & hear why this is leading to exciting times for many who have been passionate about its potential for many years. These potlucks are cost & waste free, so please bring your own plate, utensils, cup, etc. Please bring food to share. Let's come together & share the high of a needed paradigm shift & simply be with one another at the table breaking bread.
Michael :-} P.S. Waste Farmers www.wastefarmers.com is the primary sponsor of these events & we will return to their site soon. The Great Mother Earth will benefit from our LOVE. Aho!

    I am sure it was great & I am bummed that I couldn't attend. My Supervisor at work had a family emergency so I couldn't get off work early as I had planned. Please keep me in the loop for the next time this is offered.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
