“We’re really proud to welcome the companies that will be showing their products in the Boutique,” said John Patterson, founder of THH who is organizing all logistics for the HempBoutique booth that will feature products made by firms from Nepal to South Africa and Europe. A total of 10 companies are represented in the Boutique, which will be set up like a pop-up retail shop on the NoCo exhibition floor.
Patterson is a hemp builder and lecturer who has researched sustainable living methods since the 1970s. He runs a series of hemp building workshops, one of which is upcoming in May.
Highland Hemp House was founded by Pamela Bosch, who is exploring hemp’s potential to retrofit wooden frame homes with hempcrete. She is a frequent lecturer on hemp building in Europe and around the U.S.
