Hemp Farming

IMG_3262I was so excited to meet Dani Fontaine through Chris Downs the Director of Organic Farming. Dani has been working with Hemp Farming in Colorado and has a large group of contacts who work in Hemp Farming and product development.

She has quite a bit of experience working with labs to generate skin care products with hemp.

Dani will be moving to Belize with her son and head up our hemp farming and manufacturing program which will include making clothes, shoes, hats, backpacks and even tents for our Feed the World Foundation.

We’ll have 500 acres in crops and 90,000 square feet of manufacturing. Our students will be able to design clothing which will be sold in our stores and on the Internet. The students will be able to work with designers who will help them develop lines of clothing.

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
