It takes courage to venture into new territory, to innovate, to create something from nothing.
Here’s just a few of our early believers, thanks for your support!

Mr. Barry Sandford, Esq. from Melbourne, Australia is our first Patron of Hemp Technologies. Barry has 35+ years hands-on experience of sales and marketing of building materials and has helped numerous people design and complete their remodels, renovations and new construct projects as well as hire and train staff in the building industry. In addition to his kind patronage Mr. Sandford also mentors for hemp education and sales.
Dr. Roger Bodley is an English medical graduate who came to Tasmania in 1976 and worked there for 6 years before returning to train as a radiologist. Worked in Oxford and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which includes the National Spinal Injuries Centre, home of The Paralympics) and after retirement from the NHS returned part time to the beautiful NW Coast of Tasmania to work, teach and to build a home on Table Cape. Having come across Hempcrete at the London exhibition “Ecobuild” in 2008 I decided that my house was to be a showcase for this exciting material. The last few years have seen the slow realisation of that idea.
