Hempcrete Natural Building Workshop    Sat Feb 25, 2017, Peterborough, ON

At our Essential Hempcrete workshop you will learn how you can create a remarkable home insulation material from the hemp plant!

This workshop is based on the new book, Essential Hempcrete Construction, written by course instructor Chris Magwood.

Hempcrete (or hemp-lime) construction uses chopped hemp hurd (the woody core of the hemp plant) mixed with hydraulic lime to create an insulation material with excellent thermal, moisture-handling, fire-resistance, non-toxic and structural properties. Hempcrete is also a carbon sequestering material.
