Now for the really cool stuff - look at this amazing sacred geometry round "hemp" house Neil and his partner, Stella are going to start building in Nevada City, CA - probably around June I'm guessing. For sure we'll have an on-site workshop to teach more folks to build with hemp :) Neil's team will be arranging dates, times and fees in due course.

Screen Shot 2013-02-13 at 3.57.37 PMThe first “Platinum LEED” certified Hempcrete home in the WORLD, created by Clarke Snell, Jeff Buscher and Tim Callahan - Alembic Studio We might have had "PassivHaus" certification had it not been for the blower door test, that failed due to a gap in the french doors from Serious Materials. However the blower door test was phenomenal compared to any traditional house !
