HEMP IS HOPE
The mission of the Auroville Hemp Research Institute (A.H.R.I) is to promote and facilitate research and sustainable development for the growth of hemp and production of hemp related products through education, research and advocacy in order to manifest cooperation, sustainability and community.
Our vision is to build a worldwide network of researchers, suppliers, engineers, educators, cultivators, doctors, etc. where laboratory testing and extraction and processing standards can be standardized so we can collectively provide the finest hemp products with a focus on overall health, wellness, and personal care.
Here in Auroville, we have established a network of people and organizations who support all types of hemp research from cosmetics, to textiles, ice-cream to bread, paper to hempcrete, and much more.
