#flaxScotland – an inter/National initiative
Flax growing offers focus for some of the key issues of our time including the importance of locality, growing communities, regenerative agriculture, biodiversity and soil health – as well as an opportunity to revalue textiles.
Are you growing flax this year? Our call out for your posts and pics to include the hashtag #flaxScotland is helping to flag up flax growing initiatives all over the country. Check out some growing stories with a search on #flaxScotland.
We link with Flax growers beyond Scotland too, in particular to Sweden and the inspirational #1kvmLIN project. Maria Claesson of the Swedish Handicrafts Association presented at our recent International Roundtable – view via YouTube here.
