Let’s sow the seeds for Victoria’s future!

From textiles to food, bioplastics, construction materials, and biofuel – hemp has been around for thousands of years and been used in thousands of ways.

Fast-growing and pest-resistant, hemp also boasts some impressive environmental credentials. It’s great for carbon sequestration and can be used as a durable, non-toxic building material known as hempcrete.

Sadly, the environmental, societal, and economic benefits from this wondrous plant have been stifled due to stigma and a lack of investment.

With many parts of Victoria offering the ideal conditions for hemp farming, and growing global interest for products made from hemp, the economic potential for hemp farming and manufacturing is seemingly, exponential.  

We must respond to the findings of the Inquiry into the Industrial Hemp Industry in Victoria to ensure our laws better support this vital industry.

That’s what we plan to do with our upcoming Hemp Industry Bill 2024.

Keen to see the hemp economy grow in Victoria? Sign up to my mailing list to stay up to date with our campaign.

Thanks to the tireless advocacy of Victorian hemp growers during this campaign, we now have the chance to change the law and build a nation leading hemp industry.
