Whether you're looking for a romantic picnic, a family outing or a chance to admire the blossoms as you take Fido out for a walk, Bleu Lavande is sure to please!

New features you don’t want to miss this summer

From July 22 to August 6, 2023, take part in special events that celebrate lavender and its many benefits. Look forward to olfactory workshops, live music, entertainment for kids and guided tours. Be sure to catch Family Sundays, happening from July 23 to August 13, 2023, when the little ones will get to meet Polly the bee mascot and get their faces painted and adorned with glittery sequins for a touch of magic!

Did you have a romantic day out in mind instead? Romantic Thursdays will win over your heart by offering picnics and a happy hour that ends with a sunset. During these themed evenings, the lavender fields are open until 9 p.m., and talented harpist Isabeau Corriveau, winner of several awards, will perform to enhance the evening with a magnificent soundtrack. These special poetic events will take place on July 20 and 27 and August 3 and 10, 2023.

Taking care of the environment: a constant concern for Bleu Lavande

Respecting nature and biodiversity is one of Bleu Lavande's core values, and the company works hard every day to take action on environmental issues. Initiatives already in place include the use of natural, pesticide-free fertilizers, a rainwater harvesting system, and bulbs that reduce light pollution. What's more, for every bar of soap sold, Bleu Lavande makes a donation to Bee City Canada, an organization dedicated to protecting pollinators.

And that's not all! Bleu Lavande is also putting in place several initiatives for the current year, such as the addition of a sustainable development panel to its interpretation centre, and the installation of swallow nest boxes, bat shelters and an insect hotel to help preserve pollinators. In addition, over 300 lavender plants have been offered free of charge to regional tourist accommodations to promote the preservation of pollinators!
