Meet the Team
During a 3 year stint in OZ for some naughty stuff he did back in the 80’s Greg was introduced to Industrial Hemp - "MIRACLE PLANT OF THE FUTURE" and has been walking the talk ever since, teaching others how to use the top third of the plant for medicine and the bottom of the plant for building, bedding and technical fibre applications.
Greg co-founded Hemp Technologies in Asheville, NC, to build healthy, breathable, energy saving homes with Hemp/Lime and other non-VOC materials. Since then he’s learned a whole bunch of interesting ways to make a multitude of hemp products for homes ’n health.
Greg is a passionate Speaker/Teacher on "Universal Design" and "Future-Proofing" for "Aging-in-Place" passive income homes - aka "Green Granny Flats" and the ”Boomerang Income Plan” to help ease the affordable housing crisis gripping our world right NOW!
From the flowering heads to the healing tap roots, Hemp Technologies Global works with the WHOLE Hemp plant !!!
