Indigo Blooms Botanicals and Lavender Farm is hosting a class on how to grow lavender for profit. Two dates: 3/23/19 and 4/13/19 at our farm.

$250 for the all day Saturday class, and an optional hands-on day in the field for $75.

We will cover everything from building your lavender rows to choosing the types of lavender to grow (there are a lot more than your garden center carries), how to plant, harvest and sustain your crop, how to process your bounty, what to do with it, where to sell it, and much more. Lavender plants will also be available for pre-order.

Morning:
Planning and site layout
Equipment needs
Soil and amendment considerations
Lavender field building step by step
Row cover and mulch options

Afternoon:
Choosing lavender cultivars and their characteristics
Planting and where to source your lavender
The cycle of your lavender field - weeding, spring pruning, harvesting, shaping, preparing for winter
Pests and diseases
Sources for some cheap labor
Handling your harvest
Markets for your lavender bounty
Exploring products to make with lavender
