An estimated field of 2 acres may produce enough hemp hurd to build a 1,500 sq. ft. home. If you have ever wanted a to live in a sustainable building that produces clean indoor air quality, is potentially carbon negative, has a true grounding ability, is fireproof, mold/mildew resistant and benefits the environment over all, then you should think about building with hempcrete.
Farming hemp helps the Earth as it grows because it pulls toxins from the soil and traps them in its roots, leaving the soil healthier than before. It also pulls carbon dioxide from the air.
The breathability of hempcrete regulates temperature and humidity because it is vapor permeable, which allows air to be exchanged into and out of the walls. The binding agent, hydraulic lime is alkaline which inhibits mold and mildew growth. Hempcrete will not degrade in the walls over time (unlike fiberglass) because it essentially takes on qualities of limestone through carbon dioxide absorption.
Hempcrete is ideal for building communities. All one needs are some hemp stalks (hurd), some water, hydraulic lime, lots of helping hands, and a post and beam structure to erect a building of your choice.
Left Hand Hemp wants to teach you how to build with this material. Attend a workshop to learn the process of using this material, gain an understanding of other natural building styles, receive a certificate of completion, eat organic meals and have fun an awesome group of people.
The educational workshops will provide valuable knowledge and are priced at $100 a day to include meals, camping, education and fun. If that price is not accessible to you, please reach out to Left Hand Hemp to learn about the internship positions available.To sign up for workshops: Attend a Hempcrete Workshop
Are you ready for a hempcrete structure on your property?
Why should you build with hempcrete? It is fire-proof, mold proof and totally non-toxic! The natural temperature-regulating, insulating material is easy to build with. Let us teach you and a class of like-minded participants how to build with hempcrete on your property!
Take a look at how it works:
- Have the structure ready for the workshop
