Join us for an opportunity to build and train with an innovative ecological building system called hempcrete: a mixture of the woody core of the hemp stalk, lime and water. Spend 2 1/2 days learning how to design, mix and form hempcrete for a home built at Fable Farm. This hands-on workshop will be taught by an experienced hempcrete builder with 20 + years of professional industry experience.
Completes the hempcrete phase of construction for a 22' x 42' house built at Fable Farm. Workshops will include lecture time designated for attendees to learn about the theory and design principals of hempcrete technology. The majority of the workshop will be hands-on, mixing and building the hempcrete roof system, plus completing any interior walls as needed. There will be plenty of time for questions and conversation throughout the working day, as well as during group lunches. Workshops will go on rain or shine.
As a renewable building material, hempcrete is an incredible asset for the people and environment of Vermont and beyond. Building with hempcrete fosters healthy homes and contributes to a sustainable local economy. We're excited and grateful for this opportunity to build a hempcrete home in Vermont!
