must-visit tourist attraction in the Eastern Townships! As Quebec's
first pollinator sanctuary, Bleu Lavande
offers not only access to its magnificent lavender fields, but also

chance to admire the blossoms as you take Fido out for a walk, Bleu
Lavande is sure to please!
From July 22 to August 6, 2023, take part
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,

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.,

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
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!
