Lavender Grower Survey Closed - Thank you!

Our Lavender Grower Survey is closed - thank you to all growers who participated!

Lavender Grower Survey

The USLGA was formed over 10 years ago with a goal of supporting the lavender industry in the United States and the hope of having 50 members. Today, we have over 700 members and it’s time to update what we know about our membership and lavender growers throughout the United States.

In order to effectively promote our industry, we need facts and figures on the breadth of our farms, the crops we have and how we grow, harvest and process them, and the production of value-added products. The economic impact of all of these is crucial to our being able to have a voice in national issues that affect lavender farming.  This year we are attempting to capture a comprehensive update of lavender farms. We will be developing more surveys as time goes on to get a better idea of the impact on the lives of people and the economy of all our members’ farming and production efforts.

The survey asks for basic farm information and also specific information regarding lavender production. Our goal is to build as complete a report on the lavender industry in the United States as possible.

 

Front Porch Series - Overwintering Lavender

On September 8, 2022, we had a panel of expert growers across the U.S. come together to discuss approaches in preparation for winter based on where "you" live. This presentation is timely to learn what is important to know for prepping soil conditions, water requirements, temperatures where things happen differently, and a host of other things it’s helpful to know.

Featuring Panelists: Michele Capron, Mike Neustrom, Sandra Shuff, Curtis Swift, Martha Wilczynski, and Facilitated by Marilyn Kosel.
