Fibershed-Bringing Sustainability to Fiber Farming

250.00

The Fibershed concept began with one woman's personal challenge to cloth herself for a year by sourcing all materials and labor from within 150 miles of her home. In a relatively short time Fibershed has become a non-profit organization and a movement with influence and affiliates around the country. I provided wool for that one-year wardrobe and have been a supporter ever since. I am a founding board member of the newly formed Northern California Fibershed Marketplace Agricultural Coop, an entity that will support direct marketing of our locally produced goods. I will talk about the Fibershed concept and programs, briefly discuss issues with the global textile industry, and explain what Fibershed has done for me as a sheep farmer. Presentation includes PowerPoint slides and a "trunk show" of fiber, yarn, handwoven articles, and other farm products.
