A comment on a previous post about women in the hemp business suggested I include some information a hemp blogspot run by an Irish woman named Phoebe. I had a look at it and it does have some very fun and detailed information, Phoebe teaches at the Centre for Environmental Living in Co Clare. It has links to Steve Allin's work - he is the author of Building with Hemp, reviewed here and also by me in the Journal of Industrial Hemp.
Using hemp as a building material has been on the increase lately, such use will increase the per acre value for the farmer as the hurds, that inner pithy part, have a higher market value.
