Interesting student endeavor!
Here's the link to a more in depth article...

Fairhaven student Erin Ruark works in her flaxseed plot in the Outback Farm on the Fairhaven campus at Western.

It starts with a patch of flax. In mid-May, Erin worked with Fairhaven Professor John Tuxill to plant a patch of flax in Fairhaven’s Outback Farm. The patch is about the size of two bathroom stalls. It’s packed densely with bright green stalks that pop out from the sparse cabbage bed and berry patch next to it. Erin will harvest the flax before they’re matured and weave them into cloth.
