Werner Schönthaler wants to share his passion for hemp and offers regular workshops showcasing how one can easily live a life with hemp at its core. Starting with hemp bricks to build a carbon free home with great insulation and anti-bacterial properties from only a hectare of cultivated hemp. You will also be taken to the Schönthaler factory to witness first-hand the huge financial and environmental costs and bureaucracy associated with the construction industry. Back at Castelatsch one is able to see the how hemp thread is produced which is used to weave cloth for clothing and other textiles. Finally, one can see how certain foods are produced from hemp.
