Since 2015, HempX Asheville has been bringing together farmers, artists, crafters, and entrepreneurs to explore the diverse opportunities in industrial hemp. HempX Asheville focuses in on “hands on” workshops and experiences so each attendee will be introduced to the multiple applications and uses of industrial hemp. Franny’s Farm will be harvesting their two acres of hemp for fiber around festival time. So a walk to the hemp field, time on the hemp brake, pounding the pulp for paper, and using hemp yarns for weaving and blending, can bring the story of “from seed to plant to processing to product” to life. With the best vendors, self guided eco tours, on-site camping, and live music to complement, there is no other hemp-centric experience like HempX Asheville in the South.
