Whether you’re already practiced at the art of permaculture, or if the concept is completely new to you, we hope you’ll join us for the 8th Annual NYC Permaculture Festival!

If permaculture is your passion, come by to make some new friends and build your network; if you’re a beginner you can learn about the ways permaculture impacts human communities, and how you can use these practices.

Tour the Old Stone House & Washington Park gardens, learn about compost methods, tree care, and more!

This event is free, donations to benefit the garden are always happily accepted.

Join local artist and educator Iviva Olenick for a free workshop on indigo dye.

Visit us on September 22 at 3 pm to learn about the processes that transform common looking plants into linen and brilliant blue dye.

By focusing her work on the history of textile production, Olenick’s work enhances our understanding of the impact that these plants had on the evolution of fiber arts in early America and around the world.
