Hempstead Project HEART (Hemp Energies Alternative Resource Technologies)

We elevate public consciousness about the urgency to return hemp farming to our state and nation
Social Media

“Our attitude is it's time to create an alternative green economy built and designed around hemp. This is going to take an infusion of the energy of clear thinking, common sense and responsibility. We encourage people to look and see for themselves the history, facts, and realities of hemp as a renewable resource. We ask that people consider re-establishing our ancestral relationship to hemp as a part of our living reality. Use this energy of the past as energy for the future. We encourage anyone interested in the hemp alternative to spread that interest around.” John Trudell (co-founder of HPH)

Sustainability Achievements: 
Our Impact: Hemp Consciousness across California and the USA. Since 2012, as a Project of Earth Island Institute, HPH has partnered with communities, farmers, musicians, green builders, entrepreneurs, students and sustainability organizations across the country to support hemp initiatives, build the hemp green economy and elevate public consciousness about the urgency to return hemp farming to our state and nation.
Sustainability Challenges: 
Industrial Hemp, grown for seeds and fiber, is classified as a Schedule 1 Narcotic (although it has.3% or less THC)through the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, making it illegal to grow the crop without a permit from the DEA. The USA is the largest importer of hemp products in the world. China is the largest exporter.
