Fibershed’s goals in 2015 are to advance our regional fiber system in three key areas:
1) Healthy soils & carbon farming, 2) Agro-ecological research for bast fiber, and 3) Education and outreach to build demand for regionally farmed fiber goods.

Our Public Education and Community Building programs are designed to further Fibershed’s educational goals, and to promote a sustainable social web through events, workshops, and symposiums that are designed to share, disseminate, and innovate best soil-to-skin practices within our region.

Below are educational resources as well as Fibershed workshops and events, past and present. Click on the images to read more. And visit our Calendar for current event listings.
