Summer, 2023.

Patch-Work is a collaborative project with Merri Cheyne that engages with the community garden as a place for collective practice.

In this event, Indigo leaves were harvested from Merri’s garden plot and used to dye repurposed textiles with CERES Community Gardening Group and friends.
