“Let’s talk about the bigger story of hemp.”
“Technology is not holding us back, architecture is not holding us back. What is? The status quo: the willingness to change, the recognition that we need to change. We’re not really grasping the urgency of changing.” –Pam Bosch, The Highland Hemp House
I arrived in Bellingham, Washington on the threshold of an unprecedented atmospheric storm which left thousands stranded and thousands more evacuating their homes due to flooding and landslides. So my question is, what is it going to take to wake us up to really make effective change in the way we live in relationship to nature?
Pamela Bosch, whom I stayed with for several day at her Highland Hemp House, feels the sense of urgency and action needed for us to implement new ways of living that are in balance with our natural environment. “How do we connect the reality of the house that inspires and heals with the realization that solutions need not be complicated, expensive and impractical?” She asks this question in her article Hair On Fire: Let’s Build With Hemp This Summer. In our interview and time together she demonstrated how easy it could be to build or retrofit a house with Hempcrete, its only a matter of illuminating people’s awareness of how this simple change could revitalize our health and the health of the planet.
