Three-Time Grammy Award Winner and movie star Kris Kristofferson will perform a concert for Hemp Aid with the California State Grange on February 22 at the beautiful Crest Theatre at 1013 K Street, Sacramento. Poet/songwriter John Trudell and Bad Dog will open the show at 8:00pm.
The concert is being produced by the California State Grange and Hempstead Project Heart. The Grange passed a bill this year to legalize industrial hemp, which is used for sustainable paper. Hemp paper does not require deforestation, and makes the most durable rope, cloth, and a fine omega3 oil! The Grange is committed to getting synthetic chemicals out of foods.
The concert will support the California State Grange's efforts, which is working on a bill to label GMOs, and passed bills for eliminating BPA from baby bottles, enabling cowshares and cottage food industry, in recent years.
