Carshalton Lavender was named Conservation Project of the Year at the 2007 Observer Ethical Awards and we were highly commended in the Sutton Green Guardian Awards 2009. Carshalton Lavender has featured on many local and national television and radio programmes including the BBC’s Inside Out, ITV’s Tales of the Country and BBC Radio London came to visit us at the 2010 annual Harvest weekend. In 2009 we held London’s first eco-dating event. In the same year, we were able to distil lavender oil in Carshalton for the first time in over 100 years.
Take a look at the history of the field for more background and information about the project and our lavender field.
