*a Hemp-Lime Masonry Workshop*

with Steve Allin,

author of *Building With Hemp*

July 22-25, 2013, Dorje Denma Ling, Tatamagouche, NS

Hempcrete is an amazingly beneficial material poised to have profound
effects on how we build. Learn the fundamentals directly from one of the
world’s leading experts. Become an early adopter and leader in a field set
to rapidly expand in multiple directions.

 *Hemp-lime masonry, or “hempcrete,”* is a cutting-edge natural building
material. It is attractive, has great thermal and acoustic insulation
properties, is carbon-negative, with no toxic elements, while being
affordable and extraordinarily simple to build with. This can be used to
build walls or as an in-fill for roofs, floors or as a plaster. It uses
industrial hemp, a crop already widely grown in Canada and renowned as a
fiber, food crop and biomass.

 Participants will learn both the theory and practice of using hemp-lime
masonry in green buildings. This workshop is appropriate for individuals
interested in green building as well as professionals looking to broaden
their expertise. In addition to direct instruction and technical
information, we will get invaluable hands-on experience by actually using
the material in building with hempcrete.

 *Steve Allin*, a pioneer of the use of hemp in building, is the
author of *Building
with Hemp* 2005/2012. He lives in the South West of Ireland, from where he
works internationally as a hemp building consultant and teacher.
