Ladies learning about Lavender

July 14, 2015

On the 23rd of June, Lavender in Lavender Hill hosted yet another lavender education session, this time with the Ladies Group form the New World Foundation in the Lavender Hill community.


25 Ladies learnt all about the lavender plant, its healing benefit, how to use it in their every day lives and how to grow many plants form one plant.


At Lavender in Lavender Hill, part of our social aim is to empower entrepreneurs and enable skills training. For this reason we host a number of lavender education sessions per year in the community of Lavender Hill and surrounding areas. At such events people are taught about the uses of the lavender plant and how its herbal, natural qualities can help in their everyday lives (medicine, home, food etc). They are taught how to plant a plant, maintain it and how to cultivate many plants from one plant by taking cuttings. An information booklet is given to each attending community member for reference.


The aims of our education sessions and the handing out of plants are to uplift the community members of Lavender Hill in the following ways:


  • Pride instillation: Plants give beauty - when your surrounding is beautiful you feel beautiful.

  • Responsibility creation: Learning responsibility by growing a plant and looking after a plant. 

  • Sensitivity instillation: In a community where men, woman, boys and girls are forced to become desensitised to survive, plants and the act of caring for them bring back gentleness and kindness into people’s lives.

  • Enterprise development and skills training: If people successfully look after their plants and cultivate them they can start their own little business of selling lavender plants or lavender products with the skills that have been taught to them.

This event was filled with fun, laughter, dirty hands and a lot of learning.

"I've bought my 3rd box of lavender tea in 30 days. I absolutely love it! I ad it to my Five Roses in my tea pot in the morning. I struggle to enjoy any cup of tea without it since I started drinking it.” - Katrien Grobler - CEO Faithful to Nature
