Sunday Garden Work Party

July 12, 9-11am

Keeping it early in the day before the heat gets too intense; come assist in  an early summer harvest of various weaving fibres and help with general weeding. Bring a sun hat!

Learn the  basics  about how to identify what is  harvest-ready and good weaving fodder. For harvest: some cattails, yarrow for dye, various weaving grasses. We will “put up” our bounty for late summer and fall weaving projects. If the heat drives us out of the beds we can end our session in the shade of the shipping container breaking  flax and prepping linen for spinning. This is our last official work party for the summer.IMG_1751
