Western Cape Hemp Trial Harvest 2015

Hemporium was involved in a commercial incubation research trial in the Western Cape. The trial was permitted by the department of health and ran between 2012 and 2015. These are some images from harvest time 2015. Click here for a short video about the trial.

Hemporium has pioneered hemp building in South Africa, starting with “The House that Hemp Built” in Noordhoek Cape Town in 2011.

This house is a showcase for hemp products and includes hempcrete walls, hemp chipboard, hemp insulation, hemp carpets, curtains, couches and more.

We have since been involved in 4 more buildings, including a Soup Kitchen in Khayelitsha.

Hempcrete is the “better than zero carbon” building system. For more information please visit the “USES” section or click HERE for an article on the original house.
