On Wednesday, 30 June fifteen members of CLWI visited the Lavender Farm at Porthallow for an informative guide followed by tea and cake in the barn. We had glorious weather and discovered how the lavender is planted, weeded, harvested and distilled.
At Roskorwell they also have crocus plants growing with a view to harvesting saffron later in the year. There is an upcoming orchard and a beautiful pond teaming with all kinds of wildlife.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon at the farm, our first visit out in a long time!
