The Hemp Enterprise Work Group is forming at this conference. It consists of experts in government, food, farming and fashion interested in establishing sustainable foundations for New York State policy related to hemp production and manufacturing. Hear updates on the national and state movement to legalize this multifaceted product. We’ll discuss what has to be done so hemp can be protected from following the damaging route conventional cotton and commodities like wheat have taken. How can hemp production stay localized, environmentally friendly, and accessible to small scale farmers and other entrepreneurs? Join us as we discuss creating this new avenue for enterprise.
