What is this Hemp Thing?
Industrial hemp is a source of incredible food and strong renewable fibres for clothing, paper and industry. Grown worldwide, hemp is playing a role in creating more environmentally-friendly farming and manufacturing. The Saskatchewan Hemp Association works with interested farmers, companies, and researchers to reintroduce this crop to the province and work towards a sustainable future. This event is just one way to celebrate hemp, learn more about it and have some summer fun.

Where is Field II?
This year our hemp has been planted in a transitional organic field a short safe ride from Regina. We have 10 acres of crop planted for your enjoyment --- the plants are heading into fast growth and promise to become a formidable prairie forest in time for the festival. Last year, festival attendees enjoyed being surrounded by 7 foot tall hemp plants --- a unique visceral experience.

Location and maps:
Maps to Field II will be distributed by all ticket vendors, the SHA office, and on the web at www.saskhemp.com/field2002.html by August 1st. Please stay tuned.

Field II is an all weather, all ages, common sense event.
