Megan Moonstone & Taylor Martin
Hi everyone! My name is Megan Moonstone and I am very excited to be returning to Red Earth to hold the children’s space. I am so excited to play games, explore workshops and get creative and silly with all of you! I love to be outside with my dog Franklin, and dance and sing with mama Earth whenever I can. I am so excited to bring my energy to the Fairy Garden and connect with everyone. I am filled with gratitude and cannot wait to meet and see you all. Blessings <3
Founder of Rainbow Lightning Youth Village, was born and raised in New York. She earned a bachelors degree in humanities [focusing on art, business, health and wellness] from the State University of New York at Oneonta. During her time in school, Taylor taught herself how to sew; she began to design clothing and spread her passion for self expression through wearable art, by teaching sewing lessons! Before leaving New York to start her life in Colorado, Taylor spent time working as an art therapist [for adults and children on all aspects of life’s vibrant spectrum!], both privately and in various group/community homes. She was also blessed with the opportunity of working in a number of different theaters, as a tailor, around the northeast region. Taylor’s experiences in New York unveiled to her, a passion for life and a drive to continue spreading her love for healing arts wherever she goes. Summer of 2011, after planting her seeds of creativity in her east coast communities, Taylor moved to Denver, Colorado. It was in Denver, that she found a network of support for her vision to unite the planet through art and music. Feeling so fortunate to have found such a refreshing community of artists, activists and visionary leaders, Taylor decided to stay in Colorado and start a small company, with a BIG mission… Rainbow Lightning!

Earth Wand for Children
For children all ages
Alie Rich of Wild Roots Studio offers soulful nature-based workshops for children to strengthen their connection to nature and wildly explore their creativity. There is something magical in combining nature and art. It returns us to a simplicity, wonder and soulful place where we find deep connection & peace. Nature based crafts are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with kids, promote sustainability, and encourage little ones to discover the enchantment of Mother Nature. From this comes an understanding of how special our environment is and how important it is to take care of it.
Weaving with Plant Dyed Yarn
Middle Girls Age 9-13
We will explore basic weaving concepts, the use of plants to create dye, and how our choices of fabric and clothing impact our world. Finger Weaving, a North American Weaving Tradition, has been used for 1000 years by native people to create braided belts, sashes and bags. Middle Girls will each Finger Weave a bracelet using plant dyed yarn.
Solar Dyeing with Plants

We will begin with a discussion of plants used for dyeing wool, followed by a plant walk to see what is growing around us. We will put together jars containing dye plants, wool and water to create Solar Dyed fiber.
