About The Event

Happy March Cannabis Professionals!

I love this time of year when you can feel things starting to thaw and the plants begin to awake! The best way to celebrate the start of spring is to learn about sustainable hemp building practices with the Boulder Cannabis Industry Meetup! This month I am so thrilled to feature John Patterson of Tiny Hemp Houses as this month's presenter to teach us about utilizing hemp as a construction material.

John is a hemp builder and lecturer based in northern Colorado, USA. A carpenter and furniture designer by trade, his inspiration to build with hemp came from veteran hemp builder Steve Allin of the International Hemp Building Association.

John also has worked on commercial and residential building projects, has researched sustainable living methods since the 1970s, and is specially trained in residential building envelope and fenestration installation. In 1997 John designed and built his own off-the-grid home complete with its own solar-based electricity plant.
