Lavender is more than a color and a distinctive aroma. In fact, it’s more than a single flower – it’s in a genus of 47 known species of flowering plants growers know as mint.
That may be news to you, but this is just the tip of the stalk when it comes to understanding this glorious flower that’s grown at Destiny Hill Farm in Washington, Pennsylvania.
Flower farmers Jim and Nancy Cameron converted their family farm to a lavender field in 2011 and today are proud to share their magical farm and talk about their adventure at the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner on June 24.
Dinner guests will enjoy an artisanal meal surrounded by wildly fragrant lavender and like-minded flower aficionados while learning about the value of Certified American Grown Flowers.
Plus, you’ll be awe-struck when you see the arrangements from floral designer Francoise Weeks of European Floral Design who plans to adorn the dining table with beautiful American grown flowers.
What are you waiting for? Reserve your seat at the table and be sure to make it a complete floral experience by participating in a hands-on design workshop with floral designer Francoise Weeks where you will learn more about her beautiful and unique style.
Workshop sessions begin Friday, June 23 and continue on Saturday, June 24, prior to the dinner. You’ll find an option to add her workshop once you choose your dinner tickets.
