SENE Fibershed: Massachusetts Hemp Workshop

February 2

Event Navigation

Interested in growing hemp but not sure where to start? This information-dense full-day intensive workshop on hemp production will feature several speakers with experience in growing hemp, processing the plant for fiber and oil production, and the application requirements you’ll need to meet in order to grow hemp in Massachusetts. 

With a new Massachusetts policy authorizing the commercial production of agricultural hemp in the state, local farmers have a great opportunity to take advantage of this new business opportunity. Hemp can be grown on poor soils and is an efficient weed suppressor, making it a low maintenance cash crop option for area growers. A tentative agenda is posted below.m

Questions can be submitted to info@semaponline.org.

$45 for SEMAP Members / $75 General Admission
