Lovely Lavender Day with a Twist


Learn all about growing, landscaping, harvesting, cooking, crafting and eating lavender. See lavender growing in our gardens at this incredible historic landmark and mountain venue in Nelson County, Virginia.  

Learn all about growing and caring for the many varieties of lavender and what is best grown in Virginia and the region.  Receive hands-on lavender demonstrations with many varieties of lavender and their versatile uses and have your lavender garden questions answered by an expert in the field, Annie Greer Baggett, of Sunshine Lavender Farm.

After the introduction to lavender, you will get to create your very own lavender scrub to take home.  Gardeners of all kinds deserve a therapeutic, fragrant, moisturizing, cooling, exfoliating and soothing scrub!  While the Virginia lavender is in full bloom, relax and enjoy the day with us at Pharsalia while experiencing lavender. 

We will continue the lavender chat over a fresh-from-the-garden lunch, also included. Bring a friend, gardening pal or come solo!

Fee is $75
