We are 100% run by volunteers and we welcome help at our Saturday morning sessions from 10.30am until 12.30pm.

If you would like to help at one of our Pick Your Own events as a steward, marshall or cutting & tying bunches of lavender please do get in touch.
Even though our lavender field was planted 25 years ago this year many people still confuse us with other local commercial lavender fields. We are tucked away within Stanley Road allotments - you can't see us from the main road. The best way to find us is to look for Oaks Way Centre, SM5 4NQ as the gate to our field is right next to this Day Centre for the elderly. We are NOT near to Oaks Park.
