The Dye Garden
In 2020, a small garden was planted to grow Indigo, Rudbeckia, Marigold, Madder, and Weld. Led by Sara Goodman, the staff harvested and experimented with using live plants to create pigments. During the fall of 2020 the lower level of the Loudon Grange building was excavated and is destined to become a dye studio for the creation of natural dyes. The Dye Garden will be re-planted near the Grange and easily accessible to the workshop participants in the dye studio.
