A recent opportunity seemed too good to pass up- so we have tweaked our Closets Unpacked Program, and wanted to share the exciting news!
For those living in the lower mainland area that register in this program, we will self-organize trips to Barnston island where a small plot of land will be ready for us to plant flax for linen. We will spend in total 3 afternoons on the farm with Susan and John, tend to our little crop, meet our fibre friends, and have lunch together… local road trip!
This is such a beautiful way of rounding out how we think about our closets and the origin of our clothing- and set intentions for how our wardrobes become more local in the future. The crop will be shared by participants and support for retting and processing will be organized for later summer gatherings.
