USLGA Front Porch Events

Front Porch SeriesUSLGA's Education and Research Committee hosts Front Porch webinars to share with and educate lavender lovers everywhere. Our Front Porch Events combine education with conversation on various topics for lavender growers and business owners.

USLGA grower and affiliate members have access to Front Porch events as a benefit of membership. In order to attend a live event, members must register for a Zoom meeting link before any particular event; see upcoming session pages. There is no registration for watching the video recording of an event.

We are pleased to announce that we are now opening Front Porch events to all others! Nonmembers are encouraged to check out the benefits and pricing of membership prior to registering for any Front Porch event. Nonmember and non-grower/non-affiliate access to each event is $40 and is nonrefundable due to limited registration seats. After a live event, access to recorded event videos will be available soon afterwards. Nonmembers may purchase access to the videos for $40 any time after the event.

If you have an hour to an hour-and-a-half to sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee or glass of tea, a rocking chair or swing, a few cookies or a piece of fresh-out-of-the-oven apple pie … and a computer or smartphone … let’s get together and chat!
