Would you like to spend time on our hemp farm to discover and learn from our experiences and practices? If your answer is YES, then join us this summer as a trainee!
Through Forum Synergies trainee scholarship program, our farm acting as the host offers the possibility for a trainee to come, spend time at Obelisk Farm and get to know the work carried out here.
The goal of the program:
"It is important that a real exchange between host and trainee is established and that the trainee could bring back particular know-how as well as share his experience and knowledge about practice in his country with the host."
An exciting experience to be a part of a movement and a network promoting sustainable rural development is waiting for you!

What is hemp?
Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a Cannabis sativa plant species cultivated specifically for industrial use. It can be used to make a wide range of products. Along with bamboo, hemp is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth. It was also one of the first plants to be turned into usable fiber 50,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including paper, rope, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.
