WHY HEMP?

With Auroville's existing production units manufacturing various food, cosmetic, textile, construction and paper products, Hemp can supply them all.

The urgent need to develop a sustainable model that can provide for people's needs at the same time as facing the growing threat of climate change and the scarcity of water, mean that hemp is a solution.

TOWARDS A GREEN ECONOMY

"A GREEN ECONOMY based on a hemp multi-industry complex that can provide income for farmers in every state. . . . thousands of new products generating tens of thousands of sustainable new jobs. Hemp energy farming will become the backbone of a trillion dollar a year non-polluting energy production industry. And the petroleum corporations need not fear this for their expertise, hardware and manpower are vital to turn the farmers’ raw biomass into refined fuels.

These projections represent a tremendous boon to our flagging economy that can be realized as a by-product of saving our world from human induced biocide. If we as a society have the courage and determination to set upon this bold path to planetary restoration, we can, in our life times, leave a healthier world to our children; and a lifestyle based on renewable resources in a balanced ecosystem that our children can leave to their children for generations to come."
