I took this picture yesterday as I walked on Folly Beach. You see, I feel it represents my life right now. Life has taken me down a path that I've walked before but never thought I'd visit again. All the plans I made last Spring to plant indigo and other dye plants and have workshops with them in Athens never came to fruition. I moved and then I moved again! Now I find myself back in Charleston! I'm excited about it! I've started working on grants and fundraisers to do the research I've always wanted to do on the indigo.
I haven't given up on indigo workshops, I've found a place on John's Island to hold them, it's Sea Island Savory Herbs. Starting the middle of September we'll be having them in the "secret garden" and when it gets too cold outside for the vats to work, we'll move into a green house. It's going to be so much fun! We'll also be growing indigo in the green house this winter and will possibly be selling plants in the Spring. I'll post the dates of the workshops on the calendar page of the website, if you find a date that works for you just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a Paypal invoice.
I hope to see some of you this Fall!
