Mtn. Talk: Kenaf – A New Appalachian Fiber

Mtn. Talk: Kenaf – A New Appalachian Fiber

Today on Mountain Talk, we’ll learn all about Kenaf: a fiber producing plant native to Asia which grows well in Kentucky – and can be used to make a variety of products including rope, twine, paper, cardboard, and more! This episode of Mountain Talk comes from Sam Hamlin – an Appalachian Transition Fellow with the Community Farm Alliance – who produces the Woven Roots Fiber Podcast.
