Sunday, July 15, 2018 • 10:00am-5:00pm
Chehalem Cultural Center, Newberg, OR

Please accept our invitation to the one place where all things lavender blend with the premier art show of original work painted in the lavender fields of Oregon. Spend a leisurely day enjoying the plein air art show, juried art and craft booths, distinctive lavender products, and lavender in myriad forms while you feast on lavender-based cuisine and refreshment. Talented musicians set the mood while you enjoy a glass of local lavender beer or wine. Relax while you're surrounded by the captivating scent of lavender. Try your hand at lavender crafts or visit a nearby lavender farm. The former Yamhill Lavender Festival has moved to Newberg and has become the Willamette Valley Lavender Festival. This cooperative event brings local lavender growers and community volunteers together. Proceeds from the event benefit many charitable causes.

Writing With Plants
Sunday, July 15, 2018 • 11:00am
Portland Nursery (Division), Portland, OR

With Portland Nursery’s own Tamara Wallace. Bring a hardback notebook and pen/pencil, and settle in to enjoy quiet writing inspiration from the many vibrant living things around us: plants, trees, insects, birds, butterflies, sun, wind and weather. Through close listening, careful observation, and a series of timed writing exercises, we’ll engage with the environment through writing. We plan to write outside. Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring cushions or other seating if you like.
