In 2022, we started a botanical dye garden, with land generously donated by the Blakeney Project. The dye garden will provide us with the opportunity to offer programming exploring the world of botanical dyes. Sponsorship from LBL Trucking and Excavation has helped us to prepare the garden site for our 2024 season.

Interested in volunteering? We are always in need of gardeners and people with botanical dye experience, of any level.
