The Lakota Hemp Project - Building The First American Hempcrete House
May 13-19, 2008, Lakota Hempcrete building project.
In December, 2007, Alex and Debra White Plume's house burned down. Alex is the most-celebrated hemp farmer in the world.
Alex and Debra have built a temporary house, using material from the White Plume Community Center that was only built a few years ago. The Community Center is a model wind-and-solar energy installation. The wind turbine and solar panels were installed by Matt Rankin's High Plains Wind & Solar.
Hemphasis and the White Plume clan collaborated with American Limetec of Chicago to rebuild the Community Center with a model hempcrete installation.
