Goldenrod Festival August 2023 SORRY! WE ARE ALL FULL!
Please email us if you are interested, as we are considering scheduling a second day!
August 19 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
A field of glowing yellow goldenrod – the tones of yellow changing throughout the day – is one of the most beautiful and magical natural views….
Goldenrod is one of our favorite plants – it harbors diverse forms of life, supports native beneficial insects, provides honeybees with pollen and nectar in late summer, makes a delicious tea, is a main ingredient in some of our most effective herbal salves and ointments, and just to add some whimsey toits existence, makes a fabulous natural dye!
Join us for our Goldenrod Festival – Celebrating all things goldenrod on August 19th (Raindate August 20th)
We will be discussing growing goldenrod, using it medicinally, as well as using it as a natural plant dye. We will be harvesting out in the big goldenrod field, hands-on making of salves, and plunge into dying fabrics in different ways!
Cost includes all materials, salves, and lunch! You’ll be going home with great info, new inspiration, salves, dyed fabrics, and more!
