is a work-in-progress section from BRINGING IT HOME. In this sequence we meet home designer Anthony Brenner, whose mission is to build healthy, toxin-free homes for his clients. Inspired by his young daughter with multiple chemical sensitivities, his quest led him to build “America’s First Hemp House” in Asheville, NC, using hempcrete. Industrial hemp walls are breathable, carbon-negative, non-toxic, mould-pest & flame-resistant, & radically cut energy bills. We also meet other industrial hemp builders & industry leaders at an International Hemp Building Symposium, & learn how retrofitting with industrial hemp materials could as a sustainable building material, create 1,000s of jobs & make healthy homes affordable for all. We also follow Brenner as he visits the future site of The Bird’s Nest, his dream of a hemp-built group home where his daughter & other children with similar challenges can grow up in a 100% chemical free environment.
New Zealander & US industry pioneer, Greg Flavall, is an interviewee.
