Sunday, August 9
Educate & Cultivate at Historic Locust Grove in Louisville, Kentucky. starts at noon on Sunday, Aug 9th. Bring the kids, get educated, and have a blast as we join with Rainbow Blossom, the Kentucky Hemp Industry Association, Kentucky Ag Commissioner James Comer and others, educating about the restoration of industrial hemp as a legal agricultural crop here in Kentucky. Industrial hemp is a sustainable, renewable resource for food, fuel, and fiber. It has NO THC, so it will not “get you high” like it’s cousin. Kentucky has over 1,500 acres growing this year, much of it organic. We are honored that Locust Grove, St. Catharine’s College, Bernheim Forest, and other research growers are using New Earth Smart Tea on their historic crops. Locust Grove is hosting speakers, including Dr. David Williams from University of Kentucky, to share about the future of hemp in Kentucky and what that means for our economy. There will be food trucks, a hemp cafe, great music from Appalatin, and much more.
