Long-fibre hemp: training for growers - Winter sessions

The next theoretical training session on the needs of hemp will be held this winter, with a focus on 'long-fibre' textile hemp. Those sessions are  part of the 3-year 'textile hemp' training course organised by the Interreg Hemp4Circularity project.

The free course comprises two sessions a year, a plot visit in the summer and a theory session in the winter. The first plot visit has already taken place, but registration for the training is still open!
