to Sequim Lavender Weekend!

Sequim is proud to be the host of the largest lavender celebration in the country. Lavender farms in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley are known for the high quality of lavender that is produced on these family owned farms. Enjoy the beautiful fields and quality products created by the farms. Many have planned their own festivals this weekend with food, music and a lot of activities, while some farms have planned a more relaxed experience. Each one is unique, reflecting the interests and personality of the owners and you’ll want to visit as many as your time allows. Don’t miss the world-class street fair in downtown Sequim. You’ll find an array of hand-crafted lavender products, along with juried artisan crafts. The food court offers a wide selection of options and there will be music throughout the weekend to keep you going. The Sequim community has planned a variety of events for the weekend, including a quilt show, art exhibits, live theater and a golf tournament. This year there are more evening events than ever with a street dance, barn dance and concerts at several locations. We hope you can stay through the weekend and take in as much of the experience as possible. A big thank you to all of the lavender business owners, volunteers and community organizations that make this happen each year! We hope you have a fun, fragrance-filled weekend. Dennis Smith, Mayor City of Sequim

B&B Family Farm (formerly Angel Farm) is pleased to be open again for this year’s Sequim Lavender Weekend. We opened our Shoppe on May 1 and will remain open through September. Bruce and Bonnie (B&B) McCloskey along with Zion, Kristy, Harper and Sawyer Hilliker are excited about our farming adventure on Old Olympic Highway, just across the road from the Sequim airport. We are the conspicuous lavender farm with the huge barn and old farm-style home. As the relatively new owners of this 12-acre farm, we have been busy getting ready for our visitors. We now have over 4,000 newly planted lavender plants in addition to the several thousand that already were on the farm. We grow naturally without chemicals and take special pride in the quality of our plants, buds, bouquets and made-on-the-farm lavender products. We will continue to be rather low key, choosing to focus on our beautiful lavender fields, U-pick, oil distillation and farm store. We have plenty of parking and there will be no charge to visit our farm. We also will host the Olympic Art League, a group of local artists, who will display award-winning art in painting, photography, fiber, wood, ceramics, and more during Lavender Weekend. We welcome families and those wanting a more serene and peaceful atmosphere to absorb ender bud-cleaning machine in action or our still distilling lavender oil. and learn about all our farm has to offer. Even if we are harvesting during Sequim Lavender We join all the lavender farms, growers and vendors in welcoming our visitors to the our Weekend, please stop by and take a look around. You may even get to see the “jitterbud” lav- little piece of Lavender Heaven. Enjoy your time on the Olympic Peninsula!

Earth Muffin Lavender has been slowly building its business in Sequim since 2008 with us, owners Richard and Jill Pinder. Every product includes lavender that we grow ourselves and every year we try to add something and increase our fields of lavender in our product line. Our dedicated team has more than 30 years of experience growing and working with lavender. Trust the experts when it comes to your products. As everything is locally grown and manufactured, be assured that we care deeply about the quality of our work and your ultimate satisfaction. As a small business, we offer excellent customer service with a personal touch. We are happy to talk with you one-on-one to answer any of your questions and to learn more about how our products are working for you. Many of our lavender products have multiple uses and we supply in-depth pamphlets to help you make the most out of your money. Our goal is to contribute to your overall health and wellness by treating you to the finest bath, body, and home goods made with beautiful, natural lavender. Give us a call for more information on any of our products; we love to hear from you! Here’s a little about where “Earth Muffin Lavender” came from: Once upon a time I (Jill) was taking herb classes from an herbalist named Eagle Song. I was sharing this with my daughter and her response was I also needed a special name, so I asked her what she thought it should be and Earth Muffin was her answer. We had a good chuckle about but in the end the name


stuck. Does my daughter regret giving me the name Earth Muffin, I don’t know. She is a child of the 1960s and just glad I did not give her a hippie name like Moonbeam. Richard was born and raised in Washington and I was a military brat, then I was in the Air force until I went to work at Boeing. We met when we both worked for Boeing, I was a quality inspector, Richard was and still is an aircraft door installer. I retired in 2013, Richard still works for Boeing. When I retired we decided to build up our lavender business and our online presence. When we are both retired we have every plan to expand our fields and business. Lavender was added later when my husband and I decided to grow lavender on our property and from there our business was born. We are a small farm, at this time with 250 plants in our Sequim location and another 120 plants at our Everett location. We distill our plant material in small batches for the essential oil, which we use in our hand and body lotion. We enjoy visitors and sharing our knowledge with them. Come by and say Howdy — we would love to see you all.

Visitor Information Center


Sequim Lavender Weekend 2016


We’ll have lavender soap, lavender wand kits, luxury hand knits, lavender angels and handmade porcelains. Blackberry Forest may be the best location for superior photos with views of the mountains, fields and beautiful Sequim Bay. Dogs and children with considerate parents always are welcome! Our amazing Grosso lavender plants at Blackberry Forest are excellent for U-pick. The stems are leafless and the bud holds on through the rigors of getting your cuts home and then letting them dry — (standing in vases? spread on a counter?). My dried bouquets last so long, I dust them with a hair dryer! Yours will delight you for a very long time. We have lots of chairs and shade for visitors who would enjoy waiting outside of the car for their pickers and shoppers. Blackberry Forest is a comfortable, easy-paced lavender farm — enjoyable for every member of your family. Come and spend the best part of your day with us!

For this festival year, our farm and gift shop only will be open for Sequim Lavender Weekend. We will have our customary U-cut bunches with a variety of lavender to choose from. Our volunteers will be able to assist you with questions and techniques. The gift shop will have sachets, lavender buds and many lavender products such as lip balm, lavender room mist, etc. Different mediums of art will be showcased and available for sale. Outside, there will be lavender plants for those who want to grow their own also with a variety of succulents. Tranquility plant stands created by Vancouver artist Gerard Chok also will be sold. During the festival, we welcome visitors and photographers to take pictures, soak up the aroma and relax with the natural beauty lavender provides.

NELSON’S DUCKPOND & LAVENDER FARM classes all three days so after you pick your lavender you can make a great wand to take home with you. If you just want to sit back and relax, bring a blanket or sit at one of the tables and enjoy the quiet of the pond. We are now the only second generation lavender farm in Sequim. We strive to keep our family’s traditions going and our dreams for expansion are great. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll be a third generation lavender farm. You’re welcome to sit by the pond and read a book, wander through the lavender field or stroll through our gift shop. Bring a picnic and stay a while. We hope to see you soon.

Over 44 years ago Harry and Gail Nelson purchased 40 acres of undeveloped land in Sequim with the dream of one day retiring there. Over the years they sold off parcels to put their five children through school, ending up with 5 acres of their own. In 1996, the Nelsons joined the Sequim Lavender Growers Association and the family has been a member ever since. The youngest daughter Amy Lundstrom and her husband, Jeff, purchased the farm seven years ago. On the farm they have over 2,200 lavender plants of several varieties mainly Grosso, Provence, Super, Royal Velvet, Folgate and their newest variety Pacific

Blue, which maybe available for U-pick depending on the weather. As always there is no admission fee. We have a lovely gift shop called “The Garden Shed” where you can pick up all your gardening and lavender needs from lotions and potions to its famous Lavender Lemon Poundcake, Garlic Lavender Pepper and even Lavender Mocha Fudge. • Be sure to stop by Tilly’s Lemonade Stand, operated by our daughter, and purchase a glass of ice cold Lavender Lemonade. • Jeff also will be sampling up many delights highlighting all our spices. We will be having lavender wand making

Just seconds from the waterfront of Dungeness Bay, come out and celebrate all things lavender with this Sequim pioneering lavender farm and festival, essential oil distiller and hand-crafter of premier lavender products and gifts. For its 20th anniversary, this USDA-certified organic lavender farm favorite is rolling out two special events over Sequim Lavender Weekend. The annual Olympic Lavender Festival, known for its family and pet-friendly lavender party, will cover all three days of music, food, vendors, farm demonstrations, workshops and more. A special Saturday night community concert and sunset salmon dinner barbecue event raising funds for the North Olympic Land Trust’s Farm Fund introduces locals and visitors to the inaugural Olympic Lavender Rock, Roast & Toast. Back by popular demand, the Olympic Lavender Festival has teamed up with the Jardin du Soleil Lavender Festival to bring visitors a two-farm festival party celebrating all things lavender. There is plenty of parking and even a free shuttle bus to and from their farms to their downtown Sequim shuttle stop and back all weekend long! Start your day at our farm and then take the shuttle bus to Jardin du Soleil or downtown and back all day long. If you are starting downtown, look for the Pink Diamond shuttle stop at 544 N. Sequim Ave. Did you know that Olympic Lavender has two gift shops … one at its farm and the other in downtown Sequim called the Olympic Lavender Company! Not only can you get your tickets for the two-farm event online and at the gift shops before and during Lavender Weekend, you also can find their amazing and modern signature line of lavender products and gifts as well. The Olympic Lavender Stage is ready to rock, the lavender fields are blooming, the arts and craft vendors are excited to meet you, the food and drinks are amazing, your pets and husbands will want to hang out there, the giant purple adirondack chairs are calling your name and there’s a big Saturday night community dance and dinner that you don’t want to miss because it’s for a good cause.

Olympic Lavender is excited to have local favorite Joy in Mudville support this event and play its inaugural Saturday night concert benefit! Joy in Mudville combines influences from old-time bluegrass, folk, rock, country, blues & funk with Jason Mogi on clawhammer banjo/acoustic and electric guitar/vocals, Kim Trenerry on acoustic guitar/vocals, Paul Stehr-Green on bass/vocals, and Mike Echternkamp on drums. Whether an original tune, a driving barn-burner, some funk rock or one of many great tunes from years past, their music is super-highenergy with tight harmonies, clever arrangements and grooves that make you wanna bust out those dancin’ shoes. Bella Italia, the Olympic Peninsula’s premier Italian restaurant, is bringing back its famous “Sunset Salmon Dinner” so savor the Wild Olympic Coast Salmon Barbecue, served with Nash’s Dungeness Organic vegetables. They will be pouring award-winning handcrafted local wines, beers and specialty drinks incorporating Olympic Lavender’s USDA-certified organic culinary lavender. Dinner kicks off at 5:30 p.m. The North Olympic Peninsula enjoys some of the nation’s richest habitat, natural resources, breathtaking scenery and precious farmland. The North Olympic Land Trust has conserved over 3,000 acres of land on the peninsula that sustains the communities of Clallam County and is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year. They help local citizens protect the lands that define this place and ensure that they are permanently conserved for future generations. It’s about conserving farms, fish and forests. The event is from 5:30 p.m. until late. There is a suggested entrance donation of $10 per adult to support this great cause.

Purple Haze Lavender Farm is proud to announce its 20th anniversary celebration, Purple Haze Daze, to be held on July 15-17 as part of Sequim’s annual Lavender Weekend. This three-day family friendly lavender party will include the music of some iconic musical figures. On Friday night, we are so fortunate to have the famous Beatles tribute band, Creme Tangerine, closing out the day’s events with a dinner dance bash starting at around 5 p.m. Our resident hero, Geoffrey Castle, once again will be wielding his world-famous electronic violin along with his band on Saturday, then will return on Sunday and solo to fascinate his adoring fans. Aussie Blake Noble will delight the crowds on Friday and Sunday with his 12-string guitar and didgeridoo. But WAIT!! There’s MORE! Throw into the mix The Olympic Express Big Band, The Strait Shots, Sequimarimba, Black Diamond Junction, soloist Alondra Franco and Seattle guitarist and vocalist Bradford Loomis. It all shakes out to being a wonderfully entertaining musical weekend at Purple Haze. There is also the possibility of some musical “surprises.” Blondie’s Plate, a rising star on the Sequim food scene, will provide gourmet food and an array of beverages including its specialty, the Moscow Mule, and the always popular Lavender Margarita. If memory serves right, Blondie’s steak sandwich is to die for. Those looking for unique handcrafted items will enjoy the 20-plus artisan vendors displaying their wares throughout the farm. Photo ops abound everywhere on Purple Haze’s 12 acres of flowing lavender fields. A stop in the orchard will provide you with an opportunity to meet Bob and Shirley, our

peacock pair, and our eclectic collection of egg laying hens. Should you wish to take home some lavender goodies, our farm’s gift shop is stocked full of Purple Haze’s own line of culinary delights, including our gold medal award-winning herb mustard, bath and body products and lavender home care items. The farm also has its own ice cream shoppe with a variety of delicious lavender ice cream, tea, coffee and lavender lemonade. Those looking for a more permanent souvenir will have over a dozen varieties of lavender plants to choose from to take home and plant in their own garden. This is going to be a wonderful weekend of food, music, lavender and love. And we are ALWAYS pet friendly. To avoid the traffic, we are providing a free shuttle from the QFC parking lot in town to the farm — park once and visit both the street fair and the farm if you like. For more information, please visit www.purplehazedaze. com or www.purplehazelavender.com.

DR. LAVENDER By Dr. Lavender “Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink.” So says the saying, and how applicable it has become in managing our household, garden and landscape needs. Climate change, drought, snow melt, water conservation and wildlife recovery are common terms tossed around the workplace water cooler (if available) instead of sports scores and who’s up for promotion. How then can a garden be created and maintained without you becoming a water hog and having to turn on the sprinklers in the middle of the night to avoid questioning neighbors? Plants, including lavender, that “tolerate” drier soils are perfect selections for a vast variety of displays and special needs in both small and large spaces. As a refresher from earlier Dr. Lavender Dr. Lavender poses with a pair of purple-clad out-ofadvisories – 1) Lavender requires full sun extown guests at last year’s Sequim Lavender Festival posure (5-7 hours per day during the growing Street Fair.

The woody and tough leaf structure of lavender and its coveted lavender oil comprise the armor plating resistant to arid, hot, windy and even freezing conditions. Lavender oil acts as a nutrient source, moisturizer and anti-freeze for the plant. Modern lavender has its “roots” in coastal European slopes blasted by Atlantic winds, growing in dry calcified soils. It’s battle-tested for what we require in today’s landscapes. Select your lavender according to the space you wish to display. Lavender can be as small as a grapefruit such as L. angustifolia ‘Blue Cushion’ or you can park your car behind an L. intermedia ‘Grappenhall.’ The most popular ‘tweeners’ are the L. intermedia ‘Grosso’ and ‘Provence’ and the L. angustifolia ‘Royal Velvet’ and ‘Folgate.’ Those bushy, bumble bee appearing flowers in a spectrum of colors come from the L. stoechas varieties, commonly known as Spanish lavender. All of the cultivation rules apply to all lavender — full sun, nicely draining soil and the Halloween haircut. Don’t become an anti-wise waterer. Let Mother Nature take care of most of your watering needs in fall and winter and during most of spring and early summer.

good time! Our Growers Association members will offer original and hand-created gifts and personal care items produced from their Sequim lavender harvest at their attractive vendor booths all three days.

The Sequim Lavender Growers Association is once again pleased to partner with the Sunbonnet Sue Club of Sequim for the 2016 festival. Each year they have donated a quilt to our organization. We proudly hang this quilt on our main stage each year and then it will be raffled off the next year. All proceeds of the raffle sales go into a scholarship fund for a local student. Here is a look at this year’s quilt. Last year’s scholarship went to Cole Keehner for $1,000. Because he performed all his ROTC duties and academic studies in an exemplary fashion his first semester at the University of Idaho, the Army awarded him a scholarship for this past second semester of his freshman year. Two awards for “Army ROTC Superior Cadet Award 2015-2016” and “USAA Spirit Award — Best Exemplifying The Spirit of Service to the Nation, Community and ROTC Award 2016.” Go Cole! Sunbonnet Sue’s 30th annual quilt show, “Pathway Through the Stars.” will feature over 200 quilts, a unique “Joy of an Alphabet Challenge,” a country store of homemade quilt-related items, etc. The show will be at the Sequim Middle School (bus service provided from the Lavender Festival), 301 W.

This year’s poster artwork was inspired by the sand sculpture commissioned by Jacques and Jana Dulin, members of the Sequim Lavender Growers Association, to commemorate the group’s 20th Sequim Lavender Festival. With the sand sculpture in mind, Johann Klaass was commissioned to do the 20th Poster for the Sequim Lavender Festival.

SEQUIM LAVENDER FESTIVAL AMBASSADORS Five years ago the Sequim Lavender Growers Association changed the name of “volunteer” to “Lavender Ambassadors.” We did this to show how much we appreciated them and to let them know not only are they helping the SLGA, but more importantly reflecting the charm and goodwill of Sequim and our surrounding valley. Many of them walk through the street fair proudly letting the visitors know about our area. Many of the “Lavender Ambassadors” we have for our event are family members from each of the farms on tour as well as from our general membership. They are too numerous

to list, but each one a valuable member of our event! Thanks family members who come from near and afar always with a smile on their faces. Our volunteer crews are small but mighty! We really appreciate each one taking the time to help make our 20th Sequim Lavender Festival such a great event. We also would not want to forget about all the volunteers who are at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce during Sequim Lavender Weekend and all year long helping guide visitors. A huge THANKS to them as well.

There will be a break in the stem, but the stem should not break off. 9) Step 4: Tuck the end of the ribbon in among the flowers. Begin to weave, working over and under stems, working down the stem until the flowers are enclosed. 10) Step 5: Wrap the remaining ribbon in a spiral down the stems and secure with a bow.
