Natural Building in Urban Denver

First Permitted Hempcrete Structure in Denver

Hempcrete is said to be one of the best building materials on Earth. Hemp hurd lime and water combine to make an ideal insulative material. Hempcrete has the idealistic properties of natural humidity control, carbon sequestering and fire, pest and mold resistance. Attend the workshop to learn about building techniques, reference in depth data on hemp as insulation and work alongside the crew of expert builders and architects who have helped this project come to fruition.


What is a hemp construction workshop? We will discuss and learn hands-on about the building material of hempcrete, it's properties, recipes and best practices for how to properly build a hempcrete structure. Starting from a post and beam structure, we will construct a building made from hemp, lime & water. 

Why is hempcrete such an awesome building material? The hemp hurd, lime and water bind together to create a breathable, porous structure that gets stronger over time and will withstand against all of Earth's weather elements. After the Earth-friendly plaster, the hempcrete is rendered fire proof and weather ready.
