"You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home"

What if you could spend a fraction of what it would cost to buy or build your own house and instead build a unique home that you could make completely off grid? It can be done and there’s a bunch of people who’ve done it already.

January 13, 2015

It is time for change, and clearly it will have to start from the bottom...the top keeps screwing up!! If homes were made from hempcrete, there would not be a homeless person in the world!

Time for conspiracy for profits to end the ban on hemp...that feeds, clothes, heats, shelters, and provides jobs for all the people in the world.

No wonder bankers don't want to legalize it...it KILLS corporate power, greed, and control!

Kevin Hodge founder of Hemp Adobe Homes shares the superior building material ability of Hemp and the Hemp Adobe Homes process.

Changing the way Homes are Built.


How Hemp Threatens the Corporatocracy!

Amazing how little a human needs to sustain life, and how much they can learn spending time alone. When was the last time you escaped from the world? For one woman, every night she climbs in bed, she leaves. Beige has been living fully off-grid in Canada in her small yurt for over 2 years. She has no electricity, she uses a wood stove for heat, and to cook. Her tiny home can't be accessed by car so she hauls in all of her spring water, wood, and food on foot.

Journalists spent a couple of days getting to know Beige and were were inspired by her dedication to live a lifestyle that is in line with her values. She works hard every single day to get her food, water, and wood, in addition to helping out on the farm where her yurt is set up, and working as a nature mentor with local children. She's also incredibly curious and fearless when it comes to trying new things and developing new skills that will help her in her off-grid lifestyle. She grows a lot of her own vegetables, and she's learning about plant medicine – she plants, harvests, and mixes a lot of her own tinctures.

Beige would be a good candidate for any government to have on board an environmental team.
