The Northeast Sustainable Hemp Association, NOSHA, is a grassroots association of independent and craft farmers, processors, product manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.
As stewards of the land and caretakers of people and communities, we are committed to education, research and outreach on sustainability, climate justice and social equity in the cultivation, production and marketing of hemp and hemp products. We seek to ensure that legalization and normalization of the burgeoning hemp sector reduces rather than increases the region’s climate footprint, supports family farming, and promotes social equity in both rural and urban economic development.
