Masterclass – House of Hemp

Tue 7th May 2024 at 12:00 PM


This masterclass will explore the newest innovations for one of the world's oldest crops. Hemp has been used for thousands of years in many ways, including clothing, shoes, ropes, paper, and carpets. However, Vircura is the first company in South Australia to bring together local growers and hemp processing capability and use the product to develop new and innovative products for the construction and building industry as an alternative and sustainable building material. Industrial hemp is now being grown in Australia, and many small businesses are producing hemp seed and oil-based products for human consumption.

Karena Armstrong, Tasting Australia Festival Director loves to bake and experiment with hemp seed and oil. Rachel Burton is a Professor at the University of Adelaide School of Agriculture, Food and Wine and Vircura's Chief Scientific Officer, having studied hemp and its benefits for many years. Join Karena and Rachel for a delicious express lunch of hemp-based food with a homely vibe and learn more about this versatile plant.
