Joe McGahan

Founder Member of Hempen

Joe is the founder member of Hempen: a  workers cooperative that grows, produces and retails organic hemp products for the good of people, community and planet rather than profit.

He has also been instrumental in the establishment of the British Hemp Association and has much direct experience of the environmental, social and economic benefits of hemp in a wide range of sectors.

His work with this wonderful plant includes the food, health, cosmetic, textile and construction industries and he is glad to share his perspective on how this fantastic resource can be appreciated and expanded much further to form the basis of a thriving ecological economy in the UK and beyond.
