Last Festival - June 15th 2019.
We all enjoyed our last festival this June 15th. Due to the amount of work involved and the many, many hours it takes to prepare we are no longer having any festivals. I am so glad that we brought some ahhs and happiness over the years. The low cost to enter of just $5 (what we normally charge on regular June days without a festival) we not only provided people that attended with 3 Live Bands this year and an amazing lavender bloom this year for great photo opts at the festival. We also had Cleveland Mountain Fresh Creamery make our lavender Ice Cream with our lavender - which was devored in the morning session, but we made an extra run back to the Creamery for more ice cream (had to buy regular kind) so afternoon session people could enjoy a cool tasty treat at the festival. We had some amazing artist vendors, some had their work in art galleries! BBQ still amazed us with their great tasting BBQ food and made it for afternoon session even though they had a truck fire on the way to the festival. We worked so hard to provide all with a great unique experience that you just normally could not enjoy in Georgia. Lavender in Georgia? Truly special!! We hope all appreciated all of our hard work.
We will keep the shop open and you may still wonder the fields for photos and smell the amazing scent of all this lavender growing in one spot in Georgia. It is truly a miracle to grow this much in the South. And if you do not think this is a lot of lavender come try to harvest it all. It takes a whole week of hand cutting back breaking work.
Lavender 101 Class - Watch for news soon for class coming up in June.
Lavender is a must in every garden - with its beauty and amazing smell and benefits, but is very difficult to grow because of Georgia's acidic soil and high humidity.
