Visiting San Juan Island’s Pelindaba Lavender Farm is always a treat. The serenity and beauty of this place with its rolling lavender fields, speckled with gorgeous sculptures, adorable, historic farm store and snow covered Olympic Mountains as the backdrop, makes for the perfect spot to indulge all your senses. The only thing better is coming for the annual San Juan Island Lavender Festival on July 21 & 22 during the “height of purpleness”.
Pelindaba not only grows certified organic lavender. It also makes handcrafted, lavender products for botanical, culinary, body care, therapeutic, and household use on site and distributes them nationwide. We here at the Earthbox Inn & Spa provide Pelindaba’s exquisite body care line in all our guest rooms, in bulk containers, to cut down on waste.
At the festival, you can take guided tours and learn about the entire, fascinating process, from plant to finished product. Or hear a lecture on cooking with lavender, how to cultivate it or make essential oils.
Don’t miss fun family activities at the Craft Tent, where you and the kids can make wreaths and wands, partake in a scavenger hunt and other contests.
