Picnic at the Lavender Farm

Ohio Lavender Festival presented by DayBreak Lavender Farm

I am so happy Spring has finally SPRUNG!!!!  Let's enjoy a leisurely summer afternoon in the garden with a picnic lunch, hike, etc....Lavender is one of my favorite flowers, one of many!!!  I think scents make some flowers even more beautiful than their blooms?  A rose is not the same without its aroma, is it?

DATE:  Wednesday, July 3, 2013

TIME:  12:30PM (I plan on attending the FREE seminar at 2PM)

ADDRESS:  DayBreak Lavender Farm
                   2129 Frost Rd., Streetsboro, OH 44241

COST:  FREE!!!!!!

We also have an opportunity for an art teacher we know to join us!  She could do demonstrations on painting lavender fields and assisting kids with their own painting.  There would be a small fee involved based on the number of participants/families.

  1. For those wondering about the lavender painting class, the fee is $25 for our art teacher to demonstrate various painting techniques, pastel, watercolor, etc. She would then work with the students on their paintings. We would each bring our own supplies....based on the number of families interested would determine the cost per family. Grazie!

  2. Is another day better for those interested??? July 18 or 19th, please email me your thoughts, would love for more to join us and have our art teacher there as well :) Thanks!

  3. So happy that several families will be joining us next Wednesday, July 3rd for a picnic. I will be contacting our art teacher to see if she is available later in July for an art class at the lavender farm!!! Thank you :)

  4. Our art teacher is available Thursday, July 18th for the art class. If you are interested in joining us, please email me at Once I know how many families are participating, I can calculate the cost. It should be minimal as her cost is $25 for as many who participate. Thank you!
