From September through to November, Warratina Lavender Farm in Wandin Yallock is a bee-hive of activity.
The farm started as a hobby for lavender enthusiast Annmarie Manders more than two decades ago, is now a thriving and exciting lavender experience all year round.
The Warratina spring experience starts on 2 September when the earthy aroma of fresh wood shavings mixes with the sweet smelling lavender as Warratina hosts the annual Wood Working exhibition.
Members of local woodturning groups will be demonstrating their craft and there will be wood items including furniture, salad bowls and beautiful decorative pieces for sale.
The Wood Working exhibition runs through to 17 September.
From 14 to 22 October the Mount Evelyn and Yarra Valley Art Society Art Show takes over the drying shed at Warratina showcasing an extensive and diverse collection of works by talented local artists.
Take the opportunity to view beautiful works of art in a unique ‘gallery’ and support local artists with a purchase.
Return to Warratina in November when the focus is on the garden and the beautiful lavender.
Enjoy strolling through the rows of lavender and wander around the original homestead gardens on Open Garden Weekend – 18 and 19 November.
Craft demonstrations, stalls, music, lavender scones and ice-cream, a sausage sizzle and other entertainment will fill the weekend.
The Open Garden and Wood Work events support the local CFA.
Visit warratinalavender.com.au for details on times and admission fees.
