Are you a Girl Scout working on collecting new badges? Earn your Flower Badge with Lavender Hill Farm! During this workshop we will work through the five steps needed to earn your badge and learn all there is to know about not only our lavender but so many other flowers that we grow on the farm too! We’ll start with a walking tour of our property where you will learn all the basics of lavender, how we care for it here on our farm and what we use it for. You’ll also learn about our oil distillation process, the calming effects of lavender, and taste test our famous Lavender Lemonade Fizz and our lavender shortbread cookies. Then we head into the fields, where participants will harvest their very own lavender bunch. Finally, Girl Scouts will be able to get creative and add to their bunch by using additional flowers from our cut flower cart to arrange a beautiful hand-crafted bouquet! Participants will also receive a small lavender sachet and kids farm activity sheet to take home with them. This workshop is $25 per person and is designed for 4th and 5th grade Girl Scouts interested in earning their flower badge which will be earned at this event and received at a later date.
