Over 200 people came to show their support and to learn more about those who are working hard to re-establish this crop in Kentucky. This event also gave participants the opportunity to see a myraid of hemp varieties and how they differ from one another. The UK staff offered a Q&A Session at the end of every tour, which helped clear up any misconceptions, confusions and curiosities.
