February Screening: Bringing it Home

Fri., Feb. 17, from 7 - 9 p.m., join the designer of “America’s First Hemp House" on his mission to find the healthiest building materials to construct a safe environment for his daughter, who has chemical sensitivities. Bringing it Home chronicles one father's journey as he discovers non-toxic, carbon neutral, recyclable hempcrete that is pest-fire-mold-resistant and cuts energy bills in half, but current U.S. Federal policy does not distinguish hemp from its plant cousin marijuana, despite a long history of hemp farming in America up until the 1940s. Learn about hemp’s past, present and future, and afterwards, join an enlightening panel discussion with Walnut Hill Farms Proprietor Michael Kovach, who will share firsthand knowledge about the benefits of chemical-free farming.
