Have you ever wanted to grow dye plants or plan your own natural dye garden, but haven't been sure of where to begin? To get you started, the Three Rivers Fibershed has two upcoming opportunities to get you feeling confident for summer gardening.y tuned for further details about pricing and how to preorder.
This is the second opportunity: The Three Rivers Fibershed will hold a workshop on natural dye plants as part of the One Year One Outfit event series, led by Alejandra Sanchez (of @awoolenforest) on Sunday May 19th. The workshop will cover everything from starting your own seeds, to caring for your pre-started seedlings, choosing the best plants for your location, as well as some elements of design and planning. You don't necessarily need to have a plot of land to begin, a sunny spot and a large pot will also work. We hope to see you there!
Species for sale will include: Marigold, Coreopsis, Calendula, Rudbeckia, Cosmos, and Hollyhocks. Stay tuned for further details about pricing and how to preorder.
