WANTED: I can help dig up Isatis tinctoria (for dyeing)
I don't want to plant it!
Dyer's Woad, or Isatis tinctoria is a noxious weed here in Washington. However, if someone has a whole lot of it on their property and they live sort of near Whatcom or Skagit Counties, I could be talked into coming and helping dig it up/destroy them if I can take some home to dye with. I would, of course, promise NOT TO PLANT IT, and would take steps to destroy what was left of the plants when I was done.
For those who don't know, if you ferment it you can make a blue dye out of woad. It is very similar to indigo, as far as dye plants go.
