Industrial Hemp

by WoodlandsTV ~ 9 May, 2017 ~ 65 comments

Nathaniel, Rhys and Yolanda share their passion for the nutritional and therapeutic benefits of growing, processing and using industrial hemp. Not to be confused with its `cousin` plant marijuana, licensed industrial hemp (in this case cannabis sativa) must be grown to contain a level of less than 0.2% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) - the psychoactive constituent of cannabis. This versatile plant only takes 4 months to mature and the whole plant can be used - roots, stems, leaves, buds and seeds for food, clothing and supplements eg the fibres for fabric and the seeds for oils. The seeds are high in protein and contain a wide range of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids eg health-promoting anti-oxidants and omega 3. The hemp we see here is produced on the South Downs but there are various varieties to suit different climates and soil conditions. http://www.vitalityhemp.com/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Making a Dugout Canoe

by WoodlandsTV ~ 12 October, 2016 ~ 19 comments

Artistic woodworker Arthur de Mowbray puts real heart into his craft as he shares his obvious skill and enthusiasm for designing and building a contemporary leisure boat from available timbers. He talks us through the making of `The Mighty Sparrow`, from a fourteen foot long poplar log. Arthur takes traditional boat-building methods and adapts them to suit the lighter, smaller poplar - whilst still using oak off-cuts for specific structural items. From cutting, carving, stretching and stabilising - to `wearing` the beautiful finished boat - Arthur `s respect for the wood and for his craft is clear. http://www.arthurdemowbray.co.uk/dugout-canoes.
