Mixing hemp hurd, lime and water in a kiddie pool isn’t the way hempcrete is usually created, but that’s how Homeland Hempcrete did it at the Cleveland School of Cannabis’ (CSC) Hemp Day June 7.

In front of an audience, husband-and-wife duo Matt and Sam Marino of North Dakota-based Homeland Hempcrete deconstructed the mixing process in the pool, then poured the hempcrete into a short wall frame as the material solidified.

Matt, Homeland Hempcrete’s founder and president, said hempcrete serves as an insulative infill in buildings.“This wall is framed very similarly to how a traditional wall would be framed,” he said. “So, it's just a microscale of a standard hempcrete install.”Nicole Fenix, CSC’s director of education, said a conversation with Matt on LinkedIn led to Homeland Hempcrete’s visit and the larger, three-hour, hemp-focused open house of CSC’s new Independence, Ohio, campus.
