Harvesting Liberty


Harvesting Liberty is a short film that documents Michael Lewis and Rebecca Burgess  as they collaborate to reintroduce industrial hemp to the American landscape.

Watch his film, Harvesting Liberty, below, and click here to see the petition asking Congress to support the Industrial Hemp Farming Act.



Industrial hemp is a crop that has the potential to lower the environmental impacts of textile production, empower small-scale farmers and create jobs in a wide variety of industries. Two non-profit groups, Fibershed and Growing Warriors, are working to reintroduce industrial hemp into Kentucky;and eventually U.S. agriculture.

A petition will be delivered urging Congress to pass the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015/2016 (S.134 and H.R. 525) legalizing the cultivation of industrial hemp in the United States. We invite you to learn more about industrial hemp and how you can help.  To learn more about what legislators are doing to support the industry, check out our blog covering the recent rider in the omnibus budget that protects Section 7606 compliant farmers/producers.

Take Action: Help Mike and other veterans and farmers like him who want to grow industrial hemp. Help us make hemp fully federally legal to grow across the United States!
