Alex White Plume Meet and Greet
April 26, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
8 Flat Street
Brattleboro, VT 05301 United States
Alex White Plume has over a 20 year history with hemp, starting when he grew his first crop in 2000 on the sovereign tribal land at Pine Ridge Reservation. The U.S. Government soon destroyed that crop, as well as subsequent crops he attempted to propagate in the following seasons. After many years of legal battles, he and his tribe were finally allowed to grow a hemp crop in 2017, long after hemp was being grown legally in the U.S. outside the reservation.
Alex White Plume believes hemp will help his tribe economically due to its recent resurgence and interest in CBD medicine. Please welcome Alex White Plume to Brattleboro, VT and learn more about him and his mission on Saturday afternoon. (photo Mitch Epstein)
