Dye Garden Workdays in May

Dear Farm Friends,

You are invited to Alemany Farm for some special Dye Garden Workdays this month of May as we further develop the garden:

  • Friday, May 6, 11 am – 3 pm
  • Friday, May 13, 11 am – 3 pm
  • Friday, May 20, 11 am – 3 pm
  • Friday, May 27, 11 am – 3 pm

Workdays will be led by LisaRuth Elliott, steward of the dye garden. Join her to work on clearing weeds, creating pathways, developing previously unplanted areas, and preparing for planting in the coming weeks. Then toward the end of the month we will be putting coreopsis, indigo, hopi sunflowers, weld, tansy, and flax in the ground and laying irrigation for these beds. The woad plants are in full bloom and the madder plants are very pert right now.

Bring a sun hat and wear layers. Please have a mask with you, as we are still asking people to wear them when working closely with others. You may want to bring some snacks for yourself and definitely have a water bottle! We will have gloves and all of the tools you’ll need on site.

Please let LisaRuth know by emailing lisaruth [dot] elliott [at] gmail [dot] com if you can join her for one or more of these Dye Garden work days. We’d love to have you.
