Episode 1 After months of phone calls, emails, texts and Zooms I flew down to Santa Rosa NM to reconnect with Jonas Thaler, a childhood friend. For the last year h’s been making paper with the hemp I’ve grown in Washington State. Now we’re going to grow hemp on his neighbor’s farm in New Mexico!
We leased land from Gino, who no longer grows tomatos on his land. He was kind enough to turn the soil over in anticpation of us planting a Chinese hemp cultivar.
Jonas & Jerry first met in 1st grade
