The Great American Hempathon

Come Grow With Us
With the Farm Bill being passed,hemp is now legal to grow in all 50 states, territories and indigenous nations. Hemp Hemp Hooray! Let’s get growing!
The Veterans Village Kins Community has partnered with Hemp Inc. to host the “Great American Hempathon” events.  The first ever to be held in the modern day history of Hemp.
The area for the Hempathon is situated on the 500 acre ecovillage, with 300 acres designated for growing hemp. This year (2019) the land was fenced, cleared and water pipes were laid, but the state of AZ issued our license too late in the season, and it was too hot. We will try it again next year when we can plant on time. 
There has been much progress. We have 6 domes and the overnight RV sites are ready, so people can stay on the land during the grow. Our live streaming video cameras are also ready, so world can watch the “The Great American Hempathon,” in real time.

How Hempathon

The Hempathon will take place in the first growing season in 2020. It will cover planting, maintaining, harvesting, and processing of the plants. The growers will demonstrate their best growing abilities. Hemp Inc. will document the process, showcasing each grower in a docuseries called “The Modern Day History of Hemp”.
Hemp Inc. creates joint ventures with growers, and allows them a 1/2 acre parcel to plant hemp on (See details below and FAQ). Each team should have a master grower with knowledge and experience to grow CBD quality hemp cannabis. Growers will be responsible for installing the irrigation systems, preparing the soil, and maintaining their grow. Then the fun begins!
Veterans Village CBD Products
Veteran Village Kins Community is designed to grow hemp and produce Hemp CBD products to benefit veterans, as well as generate revenues. This is the first project to kick off the revenue model for the community. Each grower gives a dedication to a veteran or veteran group as a way of showing gratitude for their service to our Country.

Media Coverage for Hempathon

Press Release
Hemp Inc. is a publicly traded company with a large following. The Hempathon will be covered in press releases, articles, and Bruce Perlowin will be talking about it in any media coverage he can. 

TV Station Coverage
ABC Phoenix (interviewed Bruce earlier this year) has offered to cover the first day of planting in Arizona on Veterans Village Kins Community. We plan to contact other media outlets and expect there to be a media frenzy. The event will be a spectacular and very unusual experience perfectly suited for feature stories.
Hemp, Inc. has contracted 2 Manifest Studio, LLC to create a docu-series called “The Modern Day History of Hemp”. Director Joseph Trivigno and his team will be covering Hempathon, featuring growers, giving them an exclusive opportunity to showcase what they know, products they use and market their companies. The docu-series is expected to be released by 2021.

The Learning Experience

Learn About This Multi-Billion Dollar Industry

The Hemp University (Arizona) will offer classes in one of our geodesic dome throughout the project, which will include hemp experts, product developers, field trips to the grow area (100 yards away), and more. This hands-on, interactive, educational experience is the chance of a lifetime for people to learn about this new emerging multi-billion dollar industry from hemp industry experts.
A 44-ft geodesic dome will be set up to show movies, documentaries and courses on everything from bio-dynamic farming, permaculture, organic farming practices to bees, predator pest control, soil amendments, cloning, grafting and other peripheral agricultural course materials.
The entire operation will be covered on our live streaming video so the world can tap in and watch The Great American Hempathon in real time.
