Our grant application to receive a free hoop house from the NRCS/USDA was recently turned down in the 11th hour due to my personal use of cannabis for a chronic medical condition (disability) for which I have been prescribed this medicine. I had multiple on-site consultations and could have been advised months ago to submit a separate application to bureaucratically disassociate cannabis from Foursight farm's application. However, after meeting multiple representatives I was assured that USDA policy would allow NRCS to support our farm as long as we planned to grow conventional crops in our hoop house. This was always the plan and I was always transparent. We are seeking $5000 to purchase a 30'x60' hoop house for an art exhibit full of hemp. Legendary Cannabis grower, JackXXX, is spearheading this project with the intent of manufacturing a drywall alternative made from hemp.
