Event Navigation

Join us every Tuesday afternoon to volunteer in our beautiful natural dye and pigment garden at the Fibershed Learning Center near Point Reyes Station, California!

Our demonstration natural dye and pigment garden incorporates a wide range of both native and cultivated plants with rich cultural traditions of use in fiber and dye systems (eg. mugwort, goldenrod, dogwood, native grasses, sedges, marigold, coreopsis, Japanese indigo, and more). Together with the restored riparian corridor and salmonid spawning creek adjacent to our garden, this tended landscape provides materials and land connection for artisans and students working at the Learning Center.

We will be welcoming volunteers into the garden every Tuesday afternoon, from 2-5p with various gardening tasks, like mulching, weeding, maintaining our hedgerows, watering, harvesting dye flowers to dry, and more!

Volunteers can come anytime between 2-5p. Please bring gardening gloves and a trowel or hori hori (if you have one). For first time garden volunteers, RSVP preferred (email maria@fibershed.org), but drop-ins are welcomed.

If you have any questions, please email Maria at maria@fibershed.org.
