The Highland Hemp House will be the first large-scale residential hempcrete retrofit that we are aware of in the US. Once built, it will remain a demonstration site and educational center for the many applications of industrial hemp and integrated building systems. Affiliation with this project gives you or your company cutting-edge exposure. Your support says that you stand for the transformation toward truly sustainable construction. Sponsors are part of the nutrient cycle of a project like this. Join us in pushing the envelope! Sponsorship may be in-kind donations of innovative green building materials (pre- approved by our design-build team), system design and engineering, labor, promotion, or as financial contributions.
In addition to hosting educational events, informational tours will be offered and promoted. Tell us why your product or design belongs in this model and we will share your message. Help us to make housing energy efficient, materially regenerative, affordable, beautiful, imaginative, and to expand the role of residence as a place of community.
There are a number of ways to be a part of this project. From imagination and expertise, to material suggestions, to hands on participation, to spreading the word, to financial support, the impact of our model is magnified by tapping into a wealth of collective intelligence. And collaborative willfulness. If we are going to respond successfully to the eleventh hour urgency that humans adapt their behaviors in order to harmonize with their natural support systems, we need to become more efficient in how we use all of our resources.
Thinking about an optimal future is the first requirement of getting there. Discovering the optimal requires sharing of diverse potential. And finally, manifesting results from the commitment to bring that which is valued into form. It is an act of love.
