GREEN BAY, Wis. — Extension Brown County is hosting a hemp educational and networking meeting in De Pere on December 5, 2019. The meeting is open to all and will be held at the Swan Club located at 875 Heritage Rd. Registration and networking begin at 9:30 am. The formal program runs from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and ends with a social hour that will conclude at 6:00 pm. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Limited seating available. Be sure to register early because these meetings have been very well attended.
The program will include a grower panel comprised of various sized farms as well as a post-harvest panel including a CBD processor, CBD retailer, and hemp consultant. Researchers will provide an update on Wisconsin hemp trials, and there will be several opportunities built into the program for networking including registration, lunch, afternoon break, and social hour.
Early bird registration is $45 per person if completed by November 18 and increases to $60/person beginning on November 19. Registration includes continental breakfast, buffet lunch, light social hour refreshments, and a bound copy of the meeting proceedings. A voluntary internal directory will be created for those that wish to share their information, and a paper copy will be mailed to each participant following the meeting.
If you are a company that purchases hemp such as biomass, smokable flower, CBD isolate, fiber, grain, or other hemp commodity, you may be eligible for a complimentary registration. The first 25 people that submit a completed buyer profile will receive one complimentary registration. Information will be printed in the proceedings that all participants will receive. This is in an effort to streamline the information-sharing process and help connect hemp growers with potential buyers for their crop.
