Greg Flavall, QBE, shares the same birth day as the 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826) a hard-out spokesman for democracy, an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776) who grew HEMP way back before we had any ”prohibition”.

After many years of building regular
crap construction houses in California, Greg discovered HEMP & LIME, materials that have been used for thousands of years to build pyramids, bridges, viaducts, walls and homes and are still standing today !

Greg co-founded Hemp Technologies with his long-time building mate, David Madera, in Asheville, NC in 2008, building the first permitted hemp houses in USA with breathable, all-natural building materials.

HEALTH BASED BUILDING MATERIALS is where it’s at and Hemp Tech Global has it ALL for you !!

Greg is a passionate Speaker/Teacher on "Universal Design" and "Future-Proofing" for "Aging-in-Place" passive income homes - aka "Green Granny Flats" and the ”
Boomerang Income Plan” to help ease the affordable housing crisis gripping our world right NOW!

From the flowering heads to the healing tap roots, Hemp Technologies Global works with the WHOLE Hemp plant !!!
