A community project that encouragescreative engagement with nature through arts while paying homage to a time when Baltinglass was a renowned woollen and linen hub. Flax and other bee and butterfly-friendly pollinator flowers will be planted by the community to promote biodiversity. The project will take place in Tearmann Community Garden. The plants will be harvested, and hands-on workshops will teach the art of tie-dye and eco-print making using flax fibres and flower petals.
