Lavender Connection Essential Oil Extraction
September 4, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Ever wonder how farmers extract lavender essential oil from the plants? Join the Olson Family at Lavender Connection family farm on Sunday, September 4th at 12:00pm to learn and watch the process of essential oil extraction, using steam distillation! The demonstration will take approximately 30 minutes, with plenty of time for questions. The class at noon will begin with firing up the still, so if you’d like to watch the lavender harvest for extraction and/or the still being packed with lavender, please plan to show up approximately 30 minutes early. After the demonstration, stroll the fields, bring a picnic, and enjoy the farm – they are open that day from 10am-5:30pm and you’re welcome to stay as long as you like.
Limited to 20 participants. All ages are welcome, but due to the technical/science nature of the discussion, not recommended for children under 8.
