CASE STUDY - Birkhill Dye Garden
From Shetland to South-West Scotland, Trellis is supporting over 500 gardens projects – helping those in need, through horticulture.
Our projects promote health through horticulture - because people grow better in gardens.
One such project is the Birkhill House Dye Garden.
Birkhill is a community interest company running crafting sessions for a variety of community groups and animal assisted therapy including work with alpacas.
They use the alpaca fibres in their crafting and wanted to start growing dyes to colour the alpaca and other fibres.
Our fieldworker Emma met the owner of Birkhill, Lara at a conference on climate change, which led to a meeting to discuss how Trellis could help.
