Hemponomics 101 – a primer
iHemp Michigan was launched prior to the passing of the 2018 US Farm Bill and the timing of our first event couldn’t have been better in January 2019. Since then we have hosted events in St Johns, Bad Axe, and Lansing. For the last couple of months, we have been communicating with members through email and phone calls to share resources and knowledge to get planted. By the middle of July, we should be all planted and the growing season is in full “bloom.” Time for us to hit the road again and get the word out about Industrial Hemp.
There are many challenges yet to this industry. If Hemp is in your business name you know the challenges of advertising and banking. Much ignorance persists. Our cousin, marijuana is getting a lot of press as we now have eleven states that have legalized recreational marijuana, but the information about industrial hemp is still lacking.
Hemponomics 101 will cover the basics of the who, what, where, when and why of industrial hemp. Topics that most of us are very familiar with, but the knowledge that needs to be disseminated. This is the event to invite your banker, insurance agent, investor, and new farmers. We will bring them up to speed on the industry and the opportunity.
Events are planned for the following locations. Reservations are $50 and include a meal.
