Visit the Drying Barn
One of the unique and amazing place to visit is the drying barn where you can see and smell more than 8,000 bundles of lavender, freshly cut from the fields. The hot weather has meant an early harvest for lavender. Also in the drying barn is a continually running slide show of Victor, his worldwide travels and experiences. (and Susan Harrington’s workshops).

Now, a little about Susan Harrington for those of you who don’t already know her………
Susan Harrington, Labyrinth Hill Lavender
Retiring after 20 years in business management, Susan Harrington reclaimed a backyard overrun with Scotch broom and blackberries to grow a successful small-scale lavender business that has broadened into an online educational resource. Via the Internet, she took Labyrinth Hill Lavender from the Kingston Farmers Market to the New York City Ballet and throughout the country. Her workshop, “Lavender: From Soil to Sachet,” has been presented at Washington and Oregon community colleges and nurseries and is now a popular online course with students throughout the U.S. as well as 12 countries. More than 4,000 readers around the world enjoy Susan’s informative monthly newsletter, Of Labyrinths, Lavender and Love. She is a founding member of the United States Lavender Growers Association, a member of the Garden Writers Association, and a popular speaker for area garden clubs and the NW Flower and Garden Show. She was a featured speaker for the 2011 and 2015 Northwest Regional Lavender Conference, the 2012 Western Nevada College Specialty Crop Institute, and the 2012 Southwest Lavender Conference.
Lavender is More Than a Color
From aromatherapy to culinary delights, from medicinal treatments to housekeeping tips, lavender is unrivaled for its versatility. Whether you have one plant or one hundred, this lively presentation will provide you with simple ideas and crafty inspiration for using lavender for fragrant gifts. You may even experience a live presentation of the “almost famous” Susan L. Harrington “Patent Pending, Bud De-Nuding Device” used to process dried lavender for its fragrant buds. (You probably already have one of these in your home.)
