If so, check out this movie at 6 p.m. tonight at Kalanianaʻole Hall called “Bringing it Home.” The documentary by Linda Booker and Blaire Johnson explains how hemp with lime is a non-toxic and energy-efficient building material that is also resistant to mildew, fire and pests.
The one problem is that industrial hemp is currently illegal to farm in the United States. Right now, the non-psychoactive plant is grown in 31 other countries. Hemp can also be used to make thousands of sustainable products, and it offers many solutions for global warming, nutrition, and deforestation.
The film shows a man’s search to find the healthiest building materials, leading him to the completion of the nationʻs first hemp house. The documentary also explains about the past, present and future of a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.
A complimentary GMO-free dinner will be served and a talk story session with Linda Booker will follow the 52-minute documentary.
