Boston-Area Housing Development to Feature 12 Hemp-Lime Eco-Units

This article originally appeared in HempBuild Magazine.

By Jean Lotus

A 12-unit residential project in Massachusetts created from hemp-lime tip-up panels will be the largest hempcrete dwelling in the United States when it begins construction this fall. The Hillside Center for Sustainable Living in Newburyport will be adding six solar-paneled, two-unit hempcrete “Tea Houses” to the 4.5-acre complex’s South Rise.

Developers David Hall and architect Keith Moskow are the second generation of a longtime construction family in Newburyport, founded by their late fathers. The Newburyport project is an entire sustainable living community built on a remediated brownfield industrial site that formerly contained 3,000 tons of toxic ash, which was all removed.

Hemp Takes Hold With Pennsylvania Development Partnership

Lori Daytner, of Disability Options Network, is working to advance the hemp supply chain in her hometown of New Castle, Pennsylvania. DON is making plans to build a regional decortication facility. Daytner spoke to Let’s Talk Hemp from New Castle.

How did your career lead you to hemp?

I was born and raised here in New Castle. I am three-quarters Belarussian and one-quarter Ukrainian but never had the chance to learn to speak either language. However, I had an opportunity to go to Moscow for a three-month stay to learn Russian, so I went to what was then the Soviet Union in 1990. The Soviet Union fell apart a little over a year later and things exploded with the economy. It was chaos in the ‘90s in Russia. Markets were just opening up and supply chains were nonexistent.

I started working at hotels, which led to a job working with a restaurant company and I ended up staying abroad for 20 years! When I started there were two restaurants. By 2006, I had become the CEO, we completed a $100 million IPO, and reached nearly $500 million in system-wide sales with 367 restaurants (including franchise operated) in nine countries and 33 cities. With that job I lived in Russia and then in Prague for seven years. It was an amazing experience.
