Hemp, Health Houses and a Greener Future
The MOM hui and Sust`ainable Molokai News Release
Hemp with lime is a non-toxic and energy-efficient building matertial; it is also resistant to mildew, fire and pests. The drawback – industrial hemp is currently illegal to farm in the United States. However, industrial hemp, a non-psychoactive plant, is grown in 31 other countries. It can also be used to make thousands of sustainable products, and it offers many solutions for global warming, nutrition, and deforestation.
To learn more, we invite you to the documentary film premier of “Bringing it Home” – a film that depicts the story of a father’s search to find the healthiest building materials, leading him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house. Also learn about the past, present and future of a global industry that included textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.
The film will be shown on Wednesday, Jan. 8 at Kalaniana`ole Hall at 6 p.m. The documentary lasts 52 minutes. Complimentary GMO-free dinner will be served and a talk story session with Director/Producer, Linda Booker, to follow.
