Arts Community is about creating artistic communities that are self sustaining systems. To do that we believe that we need to revive small scale, high intensity and sustainable agriculture; which is both an art and an applied science. Hemp is a valuable crop in a rotating crop schedule and a valuable industrial resource.
We support the Growing Warriors Veterans [see this page: http://www.growingwarriors.org/], among others. Their:
