I am giving an indigo dye workshop at my studio in Trout Lake for the Mt. Adam’s Institute and Cascade Mountain School on Saturday, October 13 from 1-4:30pm and two spots have become available. 💙
.
.
The registration fee will be 100% donated to these two amazing organizations that strengthen the connection between people and the natural world through education, service and research. 💙
.
.
We will be harvesting indigo from the flower farm, exploring diverse shades of blue, playing with indigo eco prints, creating shibori patterns and dyeing both cotton and silk fibers. 💙
.

If you are interested please join us. Link in profile. 💙 #naturaldye #indigo #flowerfarmer #cascademountainschool

She’s off for her school overnight trip! She handled all of her own packing and I am fully confident that means she’ll have at least 95% of the things she really needs. Girlfriend is on top of it! #urchinadventures #montessorikids #overnightfieldtrip #cascademountainschool ...

The community outreach and support is one of the many things I LOVE about my job at the Cascade Mountain School! 😊 We decided to donate this bike to Josue for all his hard work and compassion this summer, and also his continued efforts in his community now. #littlethingsmatter #cascademountainschool #cmsbikedonation ...

Not only do we get to learn about sustainable agriculture at the base of mt. Adams, but sometimes we get lucky enough to show up on the morning a calf was born. The kids named him "Pizza" #cascademountainschool #farmtotable #bikecamp #hearts #pearsondairy #troutlake ...

This lucky jersey calf gets to grow up on pasture and will be milked twice a day. She will primarily eat grass, and only eat grain when milked. I have come to be a huge supporter of organic dairy, especially the organic valley label which is a farmer owned cooperative. #cascademountainschool ...
