Hemp Stakeholders Workshop: Feasibility Study


On the 24th of April, The National Agricultural Marketing Council (NAMC) hosted a Stakeholders Workshop in Centurion to give feedback on the feasibility study they had completed on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

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.
