Hempcrete is a truly fantastic thing. Hempcrete is a building material made from hemp. I have always wanted to learn how to make it. It can be used in a variety of ways, and since it can absorb carbon from the air, it’s extremely earth friendly. If you live in the Portland area, you can learn how to make hempcrete at the next Portland NORML meeting. Below are more details, via Portland NORML’s website:
Our next Membership Meeting will be at the Tony Starlight Showroom at SE 12th and Madison from Noon to 2pm, where we held our first-ever meeting. We will have our new Portland NORML T-Shirts for sale ($20 for paid members, $25 otherwise) and we’ll have our exclusive membership pins to distribute to paid members.
Our special guest for the meeting is Joy Beckerman Maher of Hemp Ace International. She will be delivering her presentation on the miracles of industrial hemp.
We will be coordinating our volunteers for our first tabling event of the summer, the Global Cannabis March, taking place the following Saturday, May 2, at Pioneer Courthouse Square. If you want to be involved in manning our table, please be at this meeting.
We are also building our Portland NORML Street Team to deliver informational fliers to people at the Portland Saturday Market, outside Timbers and Blazers games, and downtown. Street teamers can earn their paid Portland NORML membership with exclusive membership pin through volunteering.
