Join Kacie and Star as they discuss resources for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. This conversation will focus on how to respond to survivors and why believing and listening to stories matter.
Learn about the many intersections that survivors face. Star will discuss the false feeling of shame and breaking curses. Kacie will discuss prevention strategies that you can implement in your community and in your everyday life to show you believe and stand with survivors. Since Wildflower Enterprises specifically has representatives in north central Pennsylvania and the bluegrass region of Kentucky, the resources we will share will be dedicated to those locations.
We encourage everyone who wants to stand with survivors to listen to this dynamic conversation.
This conversation will be via Facebook Live and Zoom. We will have a special time on Zoom after the recording to answer questions and be in community. We will prompt all watching when they can join the Zoom call.
-Wildflower Enterprises is not a social service organization or non profit. Our goal is to connect people to the community resources that they may need. If you are a representative from an agency we ask that you contact us with the services you offer for survivors so we can add you to our support list and share with those who need your services.
We are excited to have Star (she/her/hers) lead our conversation Sunday!

What are your favorite colors? Are they pink, green, blue, purple, etc? This is a lesson to teach you an amazing natural dyes project with your favorite colors that we know you will love! This project is great for anyone including children! Experimenting with natural dyes on a gloomy day is a perfect way to add some color to your day! This is such a fun, environmentally friendly project that anyone can participate in! This project takes patience, but is also very affordable!
There are a number of plants and veggies that make natural dyes.
*It is important when working with natural dyes that experimentation is the key! So let your designer side come out!
What you need:
2 Large Pots
Second Step: Prepare Fabric
3. You need to create a fixative, which will help your fabric hold the dye.
Dyeing the Fabric
5. Drain the fruit/veggies in the drainer saving the liquid dye.
6. Place the fabric in the prepared dye and let it sit for a while. Make sure your dye is still simmering or warm. The longer you let it sit, the deeper the shade will be.
Hang to dry!
