On February 7, 2019, the Growing Industrial Hemp workshop, a collaboration between Lamont County Economic Development and Agricultural Services Departments, had 185 people attend looking to understand the growing and developing hemp industry in Alberta.

Speakers included agronomists and researchers from Innotech Alberta, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, and Norquest College who spoke about growing the crop and their experiences in the field. The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance spoke on the ability of hemp to become a profitable industry in Canada. Several presentations were given on the value-added businesses associated with hemp production including textiles, fibers and food products. Not only was the discussion around the products from hemp, it also gave producers tools to market the product and secure contracts for sale.

Below you will find the the PDFs of slides used in the presentations during the workshop, as well as information from the many value-added businesses who attended.
