to Lavender Weekend,
home of the Sequim Lavender Festival and the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. For close to two decades, Sequim and the surrounding Dungeness Valley have been internationally recognized as the premier growers of this fragrant herb.
Family-owned farms are prized for the special attention they give to growing the finest lavender in the country. Sequim is bursting with activity during this three-day celebration of everything lavender that draws tens of thousands of visitors to Sequim each year for the largest lavender event in North America. Lavender Weekend runs Friday, July 20, through Sunday, July 22. It includes the original Sequim Lavender Festival, now in its 16th year, and the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire, celebrating its second year. You’ll find a brief description of both events on Page 7, from there, flip through the section for more information about the Festival’s Street Fair, the Faire’s Lavender in the Park and both organizations’ farm tours. In addition to the Sequim Lavender Festival and the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire, there are several community events planned to keep visitors busy — turn to Page 24 to learn about some of these. The Sequim-Dungeness Valley is cradled in the “rain shadow” of the Olympic Mountains and has an ideal microclimate for growing lavender. With less than 20 inches of rain per year, the climate is similar to the Provence region of France, where lavender thrives. Because of Sequim’s unique conditions and two groups of dedicated farmers, the lavender of Sequim has received worldwide recognition for its superior quality and fragrance. Farmers from the Sequim Lavender Growers Association and the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association have more than 200 years of combined experience cultivating lavender, developing the best planting and growing practices and creating superb lavender products. Join them during Lavender Weekend to celebrate the beauty of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley and its favorite plant.

What about pets? Dogs on a leash are welcome at the Sequim Lavender Festival Street Fair and at Lavender in the Park. Some of the Sequim Lavender Growers Association farms allow pets, but you need to check with the individual farms (phone numbers are listed on Pages 12 and 13). If your dog needs a break, there is an off-leash dog park at Carrie Blake Park. Dogs are not permitted at farms participating in the Heritage Farm Tour and cannot be allowed on the in-city shuttle buses or farm tour bus. However, pet-sitting services are provided for your pet’s comfort and enjoyment. The Sequim Lavender Farm Faire is partnering with Gentle Paws, a local therapy dog group, to offer pet sitting services at Carrie Blake Park’s Water Reuse Demonsration Site, 202 N.

Featured artwork for 2012 Lavender Weekend “Sequim Lavender Legacy” by James Lyman
“Sequim Lavender Legacy,” a painting by local artist James Lyman, was chosen as the official artwork for the 2012 Lavender Farm Faire. The painting represents all of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association’s local, family-owned farms that have made Sequim famous over the past 16 years, says Faire Director Scott Nagel. After a 23-year career in the Army and 20 years as chef and then owner of his own restaurant, James went back to school to become a pastor. Throughout the past 30 years, he has had a passion for painting buildings, but is particularly recognized for his specialty in painting lighthouses and barns. James has been commissioned to paint many churches, barns, Victorian homes and lighthouses all over the western United States. His work is available at www.fineartamerica.com.

“Lavender Bee” by Melanie Reed Arrington is the Sequim Lavender Festival’s chosen artwork for 2012. A Fourth of July family vacation to the “Blue Hole” inspired Melanie to move to Sequim. The beauty of the Olympic Mountains and the fields of lavender in bloom captivated her imagination. Before moving to the area, her work focused mainly on people. Now, much of her artwork is a tribute to the magnificent scenery of the Dungeness Valley. Melanie grew up in a similarly small, slow-paced town in Eastern Washington. She pursued an interest in art in her studies at Columbia Basin Community College in Pasco and at Western Washington University in Bellingham. She earned numerous awards for her graphic design work at the Sequim Gazette, where she worked for six years. She now creates art from the home she shares with her husband and daughter. Melanie’s favorite art forms are drawing, painting and photography. Often a single painting will use all three of these talents — she will sketch from a photograph she has taken and then fill in the sketch with watercolor or tempera paints. See more of Melanie’s work at www.melaniereed.webs.com, or visit her booth at this year’s Lavender Festival. She can be reached at 360-681-2167 or by email at email@example.com.

>> OVER THE YEARS, SLGA has coordinated fund raising efforts through the production of the Sequim Lavender Festival and under the auspices of its “Charity through Commerce” campaign to assist its neighbors, either by making monetary donations or contributing free space at the Festival’s Street Fair where their respective fundraising efforts can occur. Many thousands of dollars have been distributed over the years. “We consider our neighbors as visitors, patrons and supporters of our lavender harvest season,” says Festival Director Mary Jendrucko. “Every one of our growers realizes that giving back to the community is one of our most important missions. Our Street Fair and free farm tour venues will provide the platforms on which charities and visitors will get to know each other.” In addition to the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, Mosaic (formerly SNAP, or Special Needs Advocacy Parents), the Sequim High School FFA and Sequim Food Bank programs, the SLGA has adopted the Peninsula Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Lions Club Eye Bank program and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula as this year’s featured recipients of monetary and in-kind support. “In this economic time, preparing for the effects of a natural disaster, protecting our youth and addressing deficiencies in eye health care are issues on which our association can have a meaningful and local impact,” Jendrucko says. The Lions Eye Bank program was chosen because it is an integral part of ensuring that required eye tissue is provided for delicate and expensive eyesight restoration, especially to an aging population. The SLGA, Jendrucko says, is proud to have been a continued supporter for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula which for a mere $30 per year, per child, provides after-school safety, security and academic support to hundreds of Sequim area children. No child is turned away from these communityprovided services.

There are more than 100 varieties of lavender growing in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley. The drought-tolerant plant likes a good-draining soil that keeps it from getting its feet wet (in other words, you should never over water it!). Because it has so many uses, lavender has been referred to as “the Swiss army knife” of herbs. Here are a few of the plant’s many uses: A HEALING HERB: Lavender has been used for centuries as a medicine to prevent infections in wounds, it soothes as a tea, and heals in creams and oils.
