Hempcrete More Sustainable than Lumber, Hemp Advocates Say

Woodworking Network
Hempcrete, a natural building material, will be the focus of a series of home building courses during the sixth annual Hemp History Week, set for June 1-7, 2015. 

During Hemp History Week Hemp Industries Associates will organize multi-day courses to cover contemporary construction methods and hands-on practical applications of working with hempcrete, including forming or shuttering, mixing and casting the hempcrete within a framed structure, as well as finishing with plasters and coloring. 

Hempcrete is billed as energy-efficient, non-toxic and resistant to mold, insects and fire. HIA added the product is easily renewable and more sustainable than lumber.
