the solidarity Fundraiser!
Hemp University believes in community, regeneration and resiliency. Industrial Hemp is still a new industry with unique challenges as it navigates the transition from Prohibition to Commodity. In recognition of the intense season we've just put behind us, we've decided to donate all proceeds from the New Leaf Symposium to the "Solidarity Fundraiser". In cooperation with the Southern Oregon Hemp Co-Op, funds will be equally divided into three areas: Support for bereaved families, Collective-Use Farm Equipment, and support for our representatives & counsel working in Salem & Washington on behalf of our industry's highest good. On Jan.26, we will ask YOU, the public to vote & help us decide!
Each ticket bought will contribute to the fundraiser, but in the Spirit of this Giving Season, we ask that you consider adding your support to the over $10,000 already collected!

Spearheading Community Action!
The hot-button issue of the season is by far the USDA's DHPP regulations, more commonly known as the "Total-THC" rules.
When they dropped on October 27, they caused a lot of confusion and panic in our community. So we studied up on them, brought in experts to teach about them, and set up a FREE Education/Action Rally to encourage everyone to do their part.
Attendees used our pop-up laptop workstations to provide feedback and comments that the USDA needs in order to create fair and reasonable rules for our industry!
"The Pre-Harvest Symposium"
It was a fun, energy-filled day! Lots of knowledge sharing, networking and public discourse about the Future of Hemp!
