Construction of houses in Canada

A popular European construction technique is taking root here with the first hempcrete building currently underway in the Atlantic region.

Dorje Denma Ling, a Shambhala program and group retreat centre in The Falls, is spearheading the project with a long-term goal to work with local farmers to grow the hemp industry.

“We are very excited about it, so we can put that first dot on the land, ” said Lennart Krogoll, centre executive director. “It’s something tangible that people can come and touch it and see it.”

Hemp-lime masonry, or hempcrete, is a cutting-edge natural building material. It is a mixture of chipped industrial hemp stalks, that look and feel like coarse wood sawdust, mixed with lime and water.

There are about 40 hemp-constructed buildings in Canada but it has been a widely used construction material in Europe for many years.

Steve Allin, a native of South West Ireland facilitating a four-day hemp building workshop at the centre, described the sticky mixture as “like apple crumble.”
