We created hemp school with the aim of building a non-formal education space linked to hemp. Our desire is to share practical and innovative knowledge about industrial hemp. The pillars of the hemp school are based on sharing experiences and creating a network of students and trainers which together might stimulate other initiatives in diverse themes such as natural construction, natural food, consumption, and collaborative production among many others. We want to inspire visitors of all ages and demonstrate solutions that can be replicated in a simple, practical and sustainable way at the local (do-it-yourself) level.
