For 2017 the top area of Means of the Production Garden in Mount Pleasant will be a work and crop share for a small group of dedicated individuals interested in building community while growing and tending natural dye plants.
Over 5 months together we will plant, tend and harvest various plants at MOP for shared use and equal division. Participants agree to attend a minimum of 10 of the 15 offered work dates as well as the site orientation and to work in a collaborative and cooperative way within the small group. Two studio sessions for shared dye baths and a shared fleece are included.
Plants on site or to be planted: eucalyptus, madder, hollyhock, marigold, coreopsis, woad, comfrey, nettle, elderberry, willow leaves and oregon grape bark and berries.
Lead and Host: Sharon Kallis
