“Bringing it Home” FREE Movie Screening
May 9, 2016
Join us at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, on Thursday, June 9th at 6:30 p.m. for a FREE movie about Industrial Hemp! The multi-award winning documentary, “Bringing it Home” is all about Industrial Hemp and its uses.
Did you know that Industrial Hemp (marijuana’s non-psychotropic sibling), is used as raw material in buildings, insulation, roofing, bio-composites like car door paneling, non-toxic particle board, bio-plastic water bottles, soaps, bio-diesel, fiber for clothing and rope, paper and as a food crop for the nutritious seeds in the form of hemp oil, hemp butter, hemp milk, energy bars, protein mixes and countless other culinary uses? This 4-in-1 crop (feed, food, fiber, and oil) has economic benefits for farmers and is projected to be an $80 billion a year industry, greater than corn and soy combined. Canadian farmers are growing it, making $250 an acre and selling it to the U.S. Why can’t we grow it here?
Join us to learn about this important crop. “Bringing It Home,” movie screening. Running time 52 minutes with a discussion after the movie. FREE.
