At the Waldorf School of Princeton, we are fortunate to have a dye garden on our campus. The plants grown in this garden are used to dye the materials used by our students as part of our Handwork curriculum. “Early this year, the grade school students took part in harvesting color from our newly established dye garden" explains WSP Handwork teacher Tami Denette." They helped in the creation of dye pots and sun dye jars to enhance their appreciation of the many gifts of the earth. Through this experience, they were made aware of the full spectrum of color that can be found in the plants around us.”
Enjoy these photos of the beautiful dye garden and the beautiful colors it produced.
