CCDP is proud to present a locally produced documentary by Chatham's own Linda Booker. Join us to learn about the what Hemp could mean to our economy and our health.
A father’s search to find the healthiest building materials leads him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house. Hemp with lime is a non-toxic, energy efficient, mildew, fire and pest resistant building material. The drawback — industrial hemp is currently illegal to farm in the U.S.A. Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries that makes thousands of sustainable products and offers solutions for global warming, nutrition, poverty and deforestation. Here in the U.S., hemp could be a money-making crop for farmers and create jobs. But why can’t we grow it here?
Check-in opens at 5:30 pm and our program begins at 6:15. The Pittsboro Roadhouse menu is available for snacks or dinner. There will be opportunity for discussion after the film. Donations to the CCDP are welcome.
