Lavandula Angustifolia is one of the most common kinds of lavender and one that we have amongst our very own gardens! Join us and the rest of Sequim this weekend for the 22nd annual Lavender Festival and don’t forget to stop in and enjoy our lavender inspired specials from cocktails to desserts!
The founders of the Lavender Festival began with a vision of rolling purple fields to replace fallow dairy pasture and restoring the agricultural base of the fertile Sequim Prairie. Since then, cultivation of lavender in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley has grown into a strong, environmentally sound agricultural business. Over 110,000 lavender plants are grown each year in the area. With its myriad uses beyond sheer fragrance – cosmetic, culinary, medicinal, craft, decorative – the magical herb has fostered dozens of small creative ventures across the Olympic Peninsula and beyond.” Learn more of our community’s annual celebration as well as more history of the why’s and what’s!
