Hempcrete Balls of Fun!
Get ready for some good, clean (well, a bit dirty, in fact…) fun. We’ll work with a variety of lime binders to produce hempcrete balls, which you can take home with you.
Keep them as-is, or add lime or clay at your discretion to create spherical globes of goodness!
Hemp hurds + lime binder + water = hempcrete
Come find out what all the fuss is about with this nascent building material that is capturing the hearts and minds of builders and planners across the world.
