Affordable housing constructed with hemp-based building material is nearing completion in New Castle, Pennsylvania.
Project PA Hemp Home is the first full home renovation in the state using hempcrete and HempWood.
The nonprofit corporation behind the project is DON Enterprises, headquartered in New Castle. DON has grown from its core work in disability rights advocacy to become the second largest employer in Lawrence County and a force for economic development, employing over 1,000 people who provide a range of services from attendant care to construction.
