Hilltop Garden

The textiles department has a good relationship with Hilltop Gardens, where we can grow dye plants and the textiles classes come periodically to care and harvest the various plants in order to create fresh dyes. We went out last week to do some weeding, put down some mulch, and even put up a fence! There is a family of groundhogs that love the dye plants, so hopefully this will stop them! We will be returning in a few weeks in order to keep the plants healthy, and hopefully will get to do some fresh dyeing before the end of the summer!

If you are interested in volunteering or just exploring hilltop, this is their website!
