Hemp Deck Green Bank
Workshops, demos and expo on industrial hemp ALL WEEKEND!
2022 Mardigrass Hemp Expo will explore from seed to satisfaction, showcasing the multiplicity of uses of the wondrous hemp plant’s seeds and fibre. The expo will promote hemp solutions for Industry, Medical and Food use. Our highly experienced Hempies have had many years of experience in developing hemp for new clean green hemp farming and renewable raw materials to replace mining and petrochemicals. There are many Hemp farmers in NSW and indeed across Australia now and this will be a great chance to meet farmers who are discovering just why cannabis was not long ago the most grown plant on the planet many claim.
11 am : Growing CBD Hemp Biodynamically
Speaker: Don Langdon, Southern Cross Hemp Oil
About: Growing cbd hemp biodynamically and making activated biochar turning clay into black soil. Explaining how we can save money and the world with biodynamic hemp CBD farming: Explained briefly here in both English & Japanese
12 pm : Growing hemp in the northern rivers for food, fibre and regenerative farming
Speakers: Hanna and Leon, Hemp Threads
About: We are Hemp Threads, an industrial hemp company formed in 2019 which aims to bring local hemp production and processing to the northern rivers. We have experimented with fibres, building materials, foods and forms of regenerative farming. We are currently specialising in hemp seed oil and flour production with the help of our cold pressed oil machine. We envision small-scale hemp farms with centralised processing facilities to empower people to live on the land and contribute to a plant-based economy. We are passionate about regenerative agriculture and organic cannabis cultivation to help heal damaged agricultural land.

12 pm : Creating High Value Products from Hemp
Speaker: Martin Ernegg, Hemp Fibre Fusion
About: We cultivate hemp for its flowers, edible seeds, fibres and hurds and with the right know-how and tools we can use this amazing plant to create thousands of high quality products. Hemp helps us free our minds, make healthy food, keep us warm, build a house, maybe even help save the world. Hemp can sequester up to 20 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare each year, more than any other crop or woodland. At present we grow 2000 hectares of industrial hemp in Australia, mainly in Tasmania. But if we seek to develop and invest in knowhow and machinery and increase the amount of grown and processed hemp to 100.000 hectares (we grow cotton on 500.000) per annum, we would create sustainable value for our planet and people worth $ hundreds of millions . On top of that we could sequester 1million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year and once we enhance our soils with hemp biochar and use hemp building materials in our homes this CO2 will be locked up for many generations.
1 pm : Industrial Hemp Panel
