October 2017 Indigo Harvest
This year's indigo field grew from 1/4 acre to almost 1/2 acre and 600 plants. We harvested 300 plants September 23, 2017 and 450 October 21, 2017. We are still in the process of drying and weighing the indigo dye powder.
Next year we will be moving the indigo production to a different location, closer to the coast. The two harvests, with the help of the International Center for Indigo Culture (our non-profit), will happen mid-September and mid-October 2018. Stay tuned for opportunities to be part of this Lowcountry Indigo Renaissance!
