2020 PICK YOUR OWN LAVENDER HARVEST UPDATE
We regret to announce that our harvest will NOT be held on 25th and 26th July as the big one weekend event that it usually is. We are considering the possibility of having a few more smaller Pick-Your-Own events to comply with social distancing and keep everyone safe. We are monitoring the situation and will update our website and social media in due course. Like our Facebook page for regular updates.
Due to the pandemic we are reviewing how we can safely allow people to help us harvest our lavender this year. We have not permitted volunteers to attend the field during the lockdown in order to comply with the government's initial #stayathome message so you can imagine we have a lot of work to do.
We are excited to finally be welcoming volunteers back for our Saturday morning sessions with social distancing and the necessary safety measures in place. If you'd like to meet new people, get some fresh air and exercise find out more on our Get Involved page.
