On June 10, 2017 during the 7th annual Hemp History Week, a bunch of hemp farmers, processors, and supporters gathered in Bethlehem, PA to celebrate all things hemp. I had a papermaking demo setup and we were making hemp paper all day! Next to me was a group of builders from PA doing hempcrete building. The Hemp Heals Foundation had a booth (The event was organized by their founder, Riley Cote) as well as the PAHIC- Pennsylvania Hemp Industry Council.
Here are some photos. They are growing hemp in the nearby Lehigh Valley.
This was meaningful for me as I used to live in PA (Lancaster – not too far from Hempfield High School!)
