DomeGuys International provides geodesic Domes all around the world – such as China, Tokyo, and Canada, but this summer we were thrilled to equip our neighbors, the State of Jefferson Music Festival & Hemp Expo with a 44′ Earth Print Event Dome! Their third annual event in 2012 was a great success! We are so happy for them and are delighted that this beautiful Dome (which can also function as an Emergency Shelter) has found a home that is close to home!
For those who are not familiar with the concept of “State of Jefferson”, it is a project, reaching its zenith in 1941 that is comprised of Citizens in the counties of southern Oregon and northern California declaring separation form their respective home states and joining to form a new state given the name Jefferson, for Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. (source: Jefferson Statehood Project). But I digress…
The mission of the State of Jefferson Music Festival & Hemp Expo is to host a world class music event that provides outlets for cannabis advocates to educate the public on the many potential benefits and uses of the cannabis plant. This includes religious, medicinal, industrial, agricultural, economic, environmental, and other practical applications.
Here is a hemp fact or two you may not know:
Eco-friendly hemp can replace most toxic petrochemical products. Research is being done to use hemp in manufacturing biodegradable plastic products: plant-based cellophane, recycled plastic mixed with hemp for injection-molded products, and resins made from the oil, to name a very few examples. Over two million cars on the road today have hemp composite parts for door panels, dashboards, luggage racks, etc. (source: Hemp Industries Association, Hemp Fact #10)
Hemp fiber paper resists decomposition, and does not yellow with age when an acid-free process is used. Hemp paper more than 1,500 years old has been found. Hemp paper can also be recycled more times than wood-based paper. (source: Hemp Industries Association, Hemp Fact #8)
So, thank-you to all the good folks who were part of this year’s festival. We are glad that we also got to be a part of the movement!!

Domes create an unforgettable experience at Festivals, Public and Private events. A Dome is also a fantastic structure for an Eco Dome Home, a Studio, a Guest-House at Retreats & Resorts, a Dome Greenhouse, an Emergency Shelter, Classrooms and (add YOUR idea here for a Dome Building!). DomeGuys International uses premium, engineered components to maximize quality, durability and safety. Getting your Dome from DGI means a great experience from start to finish! We rent as well as sell Domes in both Dome House Kit and Custom-design format. To see more applications of DGI domes, please visit our Eco-Homes Portfolio and our Event Domes Portfolio.
