Hemp Full-Day Workshop

February 2, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$45 – $75



Interested in growing hemp but not sure where to start? This information-dense full-day intensive workshop on hemp production will feature several speakers with experience in growing hemp, processing the plant for fiber and oil production, and the application requirements you’ll need to meet in order to grow hemp in Massachusetts. 

With a new Massachusetts policy authorizing the commercial production of agricultural hemp in the state, local farmers have a great opportunity to take advantage of this new business opportunity. A tentative agenda is posted below.

Questions can be submitted to info@semaponline.org.

$45 for SEMAP Members / $75 General Admission

Members: email jgray@semaponline.org for the discount!
