Lavender Learning 
All Weekend LONG!

Victor will be here at the farm the entire weekend of Sequim Lavender Weekend. When not conducting workshops you’ll be able to find him wandering the fields and chatting with visitors. A great opportunity to meet one of North America’s foremost lavender experts. Along with Victor’s workshops, Susan Harrington, CEO (Chief Education Officer as she likes to call it) of Labyrinth Hill Lavender will be joining us all weekend.
