What is a Hempcrete Workshop?

Hempcrete is said to be one of the best building materials on Earth. Combining the idealistic properties of natural humidity control, a carbon negative footprint and fire, pest and mold resistance hempcrete is an excellent building material. If you have ever been interested in learning about this material, we invite you to attend a hemp construction workshop.  

What is a hemp construction workshop? We will discuss and learn hands-on about the building material made from hemp. We will discuss it’s properties, recipes and best practices for how to properly build a hempcrete structure. Starting from a post and beam structure, we will construct a building made from hemp, lime and water. Come with questions, excitement and a mind ready to learn! Our building team will teach on the mechanics of building sustainable and long-lasting structures.

Why is hempcrete such an awesome building material? The hemp hurd, lime and water bind together to create a breathable, porous structure that gets stronger over time and will withstand against all of Earth’s weather elements. After the Earth-friendly plaster, the hempcrete is rendered fire proof and weather ready.
