New class and a dye garden update

Hello!

This is the first time in more than a year that I have written on the blog.  So much has happened and IS happening.  I'm going to start off slow and announce my new dye class at A Verb for Keeping Warm in Oakland, Ca.

Growing, Gathering, and Dyeing with Plants - Sunday, June 22nd, 2:30 - 5:30

In other news, I am in the thick of working on the AVFKW dye garden.  Right now blooming the garden we have: marigolds and yarrow.

The madder continues grow like crazy.  I recently harvested 400 grams for a special dye project.  It was so nice to see the results.

I have been starting seeds of madder, polygonum (indigo), Hopi black dye sunflowers, weld, coreopsis, and cosmos.

AVFKW Dye Garden Featured in GOOD Magazine!

I'm excited to announce we were featured in a GOOD Magazine article about neighborhood dyes.

Check out the article here: http://www.good.is/posts/hyperlocal-foraged-city-plants-make-neighborhood-dye-for-oakland-textiles


I should mention the picture they used shows AVFKW volunteers, Hannah Todd and Chris Roncal planting seeds for the upcoming growing season!

I also wanted to share a cute picture of my dye garden class.  We had great time and got lots of great colors. 


I am planning another class.  If you haven't taken one of my classes, I hope that you will!

Cheers!
