The UNT Natural Dye Garden was originally founded by Fibers Program students and faculty as a space to allow for the experimental growing and utilization of natural dye resources. The garden serves as a resource for educating the UNT community about the benefits of natural dyeing to promote safe, sustainable behaviors. Today, the UNT Natural Dye Garden continues to emphasize the importance of sustainable dyeing practices, community engagement, and community education. The garden has worked with a variety of artists and organizations such as Make Art with Purpose, Denton County Master Gardeners Association, Big Thought Dallas, and the We Mean Green Fund's very own Environmental Volunteerism Graduation Cord program!
