HEMP IN THE HOLLER
Members Marty Mahan, Scott McKay and Caleb Burgess attended "Hemp in the Holler" in Livingston, Kentucky. A dinner/reception was held on Friday night with a hemp infused menu and guest speakers Mike Lewis, Mike Bowman and Annie Rouse as well as entertainment by Ben Sollee.
Saturday's events included workshops on planting, breaking, paper making, building, distilling and lighting. Along with the workshops, attendees were invited to tour an existing field at Patriotic Hemp founder Dwayne Lewis Jr's property. Attendees ranged from students to prospective growers and manufacturers to entrepreneurs and the INHIA booth was constantly filled with inquisitive individuals and those seeking specific products! In addition to the booth by INHIA there were vendors educating on everything a wide variety of subjects; fertilizer, food, clothing products and manufacturers.
Kentucky being "ground zero" for the hemp movement, the event was attended my some of the biggest names past, present and future and will surely be a "can't miss" event in subsequent years.
