Botanic Blue Illuminated

December 1, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Come and hear the story how Fibershed is taking on a 400-year-old indigo tradition here in Northern California. The presentation will illuminate our farming and artisanal work to bring botanic blue to our community. The presentation is followed by a benefit celebration hosted by Eastern Classics, a local business that supports high-end woodworking skills in our community and abroad. The silent auction includes the first-ever, dip-dyed with locally-grown indigo, zafu meditation cushions.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP by emailing marnie.glickman@gmail.com today. Contact Marnie by email, or at 415-259-7121 if you have any questions.

Last week the California Senate introduced a plan to spend $1.2 Billion on funding for climate beneficial investments -- a pool of money generated from the State's Cap & Trade program to curb pollution. Bill AB 1613 will mobilize this Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund toward climate solutions, including building soil carbon for healthy food and fiber systems that mitigate climate change. Thank you CA Senate!
