Hemp Talks aims to spark interest

Cortez Journal
When launched last fall, dozens routinely attended monthly Hemp Talks meetings in Cortez. At its most recent gathering, less than a handful was present.

Sharon Stewart, a Cortez businesswoman with no farming experience, spearheaded Hemp Talks in an effort to to promote hemp as a viable alternative crop. She said she suspects the drop in attendance at monthly Hemp Talks meetings could be attributed to a number of issues: The group suspended its meetings over the summer, farmers continue to be busy harvesting crops, and a lack of seed supply in the spring alienated local interest.
