Made to embrace sustainability, hemp projects are emerging everywhere. Across the world, I see incredible people committed to produce and develop projects that will help leave our world a better place.
This is a small and varied collection of some of the great projects happening around the world at the moment, to provide inspiration.
1. HER MANY VOICES FOUNDATION (US)
Alicia Fall is the founder of Her Many Voices Foundation (HMVF), an organization made to "ignite the Artivist (Artist/Activist) in us all, in order to move our passions to purpose, for the betterment of women, children, and our Mother Earth." Even though HMVF is based in the US, they work mainly in Haiti. Trough their "Hemp project" HMVF is using hemp to provide community education, enrich the soil for the next crop rotation, build safe, sanitary toilets, homes, and schools, provide nutrient-rich food such as seeds and flour, produce textile fibers for the production of paper, clothing, rope and provide valuable medicine. A truly inspiring project! If you feel connected, you can support HMVF work, and donate here!
2. HENRY'S HEMP HARVESTER (DE)
Andris, the kids and I meet Henry a few years ago at the HempToday center where we listening to Henry talk about his technology. And now, we are so happy to see this amazing machine in action (see the video for more info). The technology according to Henry is for family farms, specialty growers and cooperatives and "brings dependability and unique customer engagement to the critical process of putting specialized hemp harvesting and processing equipment to work for your operation."
3. FIRST CANNABIS WOMEN DOCUMENTARY (ES)
From Spain comes the idea of the 1st collective documentary of the #MujeresCannabicas around the world, which will be released in March 2020. The main objective of the documentary is so that "the feminine reality is respected by the entire cannabis community, making visible the important roles women play for the advancement of cannabis culture in every corner of the world".
4. THE HEMP PROJECT COLLECTIVE
The hemp project collective is a project made by an amazing group of people with the aim to educate the public about hemp. The project believes hemp is the "solution to many problems our world faces. We believe in learning from the past and in taking responsibility for the future".
If you know a great project you'd like to share, let me know on the comments!
