the nomadic farming project
The Textile Art Center located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, provide support for fiber and weaving professionals as well as people interested in the fiber professions, by acting as a resource facility and a creative meeting place.
The center hosts an artist in residence program where students rent a workshop for 6 months, and it holds classes in textile related disciplines such as weaving, embroidery, or natural dye processes.The TAC runs a natural garden in neighboring lot, using the dye plants in classes and providing shares to their CSA members, also using the space for workshops and lectures.
Adjacent to the TAC’ s natural dye garden is the Nomadic Farming Project ran by Feedback Farms.Vegetables are planted and grown in large burlap bags sitting on wooden pallets, to be lifted, loaded and transported to other locations as they ripen and ready for harvest, to leave space for new planted seeds, or move indoors for the winter season, insuring a rotation for movable planters and optimizes production. Like camping for plants.
