The school has a dye garden next to the greenhouse where specific plants are grown to produce natural pigments for dyeing. Third grade students are preparing to dye yarn for their own use in crochet later this year, as well as for early childhood. The fifth graders lent a hand, and will later help harvest plants and dye yarn for their projects as well.
