HavenEarth PMA is raising funds for our Natural Hemp Building Course to educate others about the regenerative properties of hemp while building a skilled workforce to build communities of the future.
We are heading to Hawaii for our 4 day Hemp Builder Training Program in Maui. We will also be offering 1 day of Hands-on Hemping on the last day October 24th! More details at www.havenearth.biz/events
HavenEarth PMA (Private Membership Association) is officially opening membership to support the vision to build community through educational tools, wisdom sharing, and hands-on building experiences focused around the Hemp industry and regenerative practices.
Founders Paul “River” Richardson and Imanee Mamalution met through the Brave New Life Community this past year and quickly realized their shared visions for the future earth that is emerging. They plan to continue their journey on the road in a converted “Hemp-mobile”, infused with Hemp fiber and materials to demonstrate the versatility of this amazing plant while connecting with members of the community, explore potential land options, and offer educational events about the benefits of hemp and regenerative practices.
Paul River Richardson trained as an Architect in the UK, graduating 20 years ago, and has been working internationally and in the US creating many projects of significance from resorts to co-housing and single-family dwellings. His recent Hemp House project in California was filmed for a Discovery Channel Documentary and aired this past spring. River’s sees a future of natural "grown hemp homes" that are living, breathing spaces. He advocates for regenerative farming practices and is building close relationships with the processors of Hemp around the world. From his long experience in design and build, in particular his work with modular home systems, River sees a great need for housing that is not only easy to build, but also healthy and regenerative and believes that through education, and creating relevant and inspiring models, we can inspire the youth and other wannabe builders, and even those already in the construction industry, with the designs, education, and tools to support the transition to these healthy natural building methods that are finally coming to the fore in these great times of change.
The ‘Hemplate’ is the Template that will seed this revolution in Hemp building and put the power and tools in the hands of those wishing to learn the skills and knowledge to build their own homes, for others in their communities, or even to start or develop their own businesses to be part of this great shift that is taking place with Hemp. One part of the Hemplate is to build/R&D the first Modest Hemp Casita project which will become part of the Course. These casistas will be built in several locations and serve as the physical aspect of the course so students can have a hands-on educational experience. The project will be fully documented to become part of the course material in the training manual as well as for virtual learners or those building their own Hemp Kit/modular home.
The Natural Building with Hemp Course will be geared toward aspiring youth, indigenous populations, and those looking to be a part of this ‘growing’ revolution in homebuilding. The Seed funding will go toward building out the hemp builders manual, and connected certification programs, enabling the widest reach possible, inevitably with the goal to create the active Hemp builders workforce to make the vision of healthy, natural homes accessible to the general population. The course, which will be both hands-on and virtual will guide people through a step-by-step modest Hemp Casita design.
Donations to Haven Earth PMA are investments in our collective future and generations to come. Together we are building the New Economy and New Learning Models based upon agrarian models and the value of community that protects our ability to be sovereign and basic human rights that include access to Land, Water, Energy, and Food.
Your participation and membership will assist to seed the foundational infrastructure of Haven Earth which is both an educational and economic model that can be applied and scaled to multiple communities around the world. This first phase of membership will get us on the road (literally) to launch the Natural Building with Hemp Course by the end of the year which will not only teach others how to build hemp homes but will grow the workforce that will build them.

We left the east coast in route to the fields of Kansas where we stopped by to see firsthand where the hemp we are using is grown at South Bend Hemp! Here is River in the field just after the harvest....you can see the fiber stalk of the hemp plant! Check out our videos on IG @havenearthpma and our Haven Earth PMA YouTUbe Channel!
Another amazing gathering in Santa Fe - where River & I first connected! So wonderful to see so many of our friends who have been witnessing our journey together from the beginning! And the growing interest in Hemp & Community was evident with over 50 people showing up! What a surprise!
River picked up the hemp for this weekend's workshop in New Mexico from one of our partners - Formation Ag in Colorado. These not-so-small bundles are going to make a composting toilet at Collins Lake Ranch. Registration is almost full with only a few spots left! Imanee is missing River and sad to miss this one!
Spent the day building community with our hands-on Hemping workshop! Such a confirmation that River and I are not only on the right path and doing what we came here to do...but able to witness first hand the result of actually teaching others the skills to grow their own home! It was a super productive (and exhausting
Thank you everyone for your support! We were on the road today to pick up the hemp hurd in Brattleboro, VT for our hands-on hemping workshop this weekend in Amherst, MA. It was so wonderful to receive notifications from the donations coming in as a sign we are on the right path! Here's a photo of River and our "hemp dealer" who was so excited to share her love for natural building with hemp.
