Once open, it will be the first lavender farm in the Greater Vancouver area!
After the turbulent events of 2020, we could all probably use a generous helping of peace and tranquility in our lives. We have yet to see what lies in store for us in 2021, but one thing is for certain: the daily stressors of life will continue to exist. However, if you are in need of a temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and the worries of everyday life, a possible solution may be on the horizon.
This summer, a brand-new, 7-acre lavender farm, Lavenderland, will bloom into existence in Richmond, British Columbia. As lavender flowers are considered to be symbols of purity, serenity, and calmness, a visit to this farm could provide some much-needed respite.
Lavenderland’s grand opening will be on June 19th. It will be open daily from 8 am to 6 pm until September 7, 2021. Visitors can expect to see and stroll through a stunning sea of four varieties of lavender: Super Blue Lavender, Melissa Lavender, Grosso Lavender, and French Lavender. The farm’s sweeping field of purple, pink, and violet flowers could provide a perfect backdrop for you and your loved ones to peacefully enjoy some of nature’s floral beauty and snap some memorable photos.
Tickets to Lavenderland will go on sale on March 1st and must be pre-booked using their online booking system or by phone at 778-889-5458. General Admission tickets are $15 per person, and children under 3 can enter free. There are special prices for families and groups, as well as package tours available. If you decide you want to take a piece of the experience home with you, there will be a gift shop selling a variety of homemade lavender products.
