Event #2 in the SWPA Bioeconomy Series was hosted by ReImagine Beaver County. Industrial hemp has hundreds of applications in packaging, construction, textiles, renewable energy, land remediation and more. Following an expert presentation, we held a group discussion about steps we can take in our region to amplify the production and processing of industrial hemp, and spur manufacturing to create high quality jobs to benefit local communities.

Presenter: Erica Stark, Executive Director of the National Hemp Association, Board Chair of the PA Hemp Industry Council, and an Advisory Member of the PA Industrial Hemp Engine. Ms. Stark is an expert working at State and National levels.
