Eucalyptus Of the Australian Capital Territory back to Eucalyptus dyes

Over 2018-19 I have been undertaking research into the colours of the ACT eucalyptus. This research was supported by an ArtsACT grant.

There are 27 eucalyptus that grow naturally in the ACT. The rangers at the Australian National Botanical Gardens once again helped me to collect leaves and bark to make into dyes.
