Hemp History Week

The 5th Annual Hemp History Week: June 2-8, 2014
It’s Time to Grow

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

Movie Night: To The Moon

Free movie TO THE MOON.

The United Nations declared 2012 the International Year of Cooperatives. A group of students from Amherst, Massachusetts decided to claim it.

Eighteen college students bicycle from California to Massachusetts in order to spread awareness about cooperatives, a business model they believe to be a solution to the volatile global economy. They confront frustrating realities while discovering their place in the world, and the results are at once chaotic, enlightening, and unforgettable.

Join us for an inspiring night of conversation! Introduction from the Director, Emma Thatcher. Q&A with the Director, Emma Thatcher and with participant, Leah Grossman

at the 4001 S. Lamar Community Room. Please RSVP
