U-Pick Lavender at ACHS is Happening Now: Harvest Fresh Lavender!

It's that time of year! Our lavender in the ACHS Botanical Teaching Garden is fresh, vibrant, and ready to be harvested. Starting today, stop by the ACHS campus in John's Landing between the hours of 8:30 am-5:30 pm, Monday-Friday, and harvest your own lavender for just $6 per bunch (or 2 bunches for $10).

U-Pick is on until the lavender is gone ... and it goes fast ... so don't wait! Plus, U-Pick is a fun, family-friendly activity. Bring your friends and family for some quality time in the garden!

For a little inspiration, check out the ACHS Aromatherapy Blog, where we have posted directions for making your own lavender wands. Lavender wands are very aromatic and make wonderful air fresheners and sachets, as well as great gifts!

U-Pick Lavender at the ACHS campus, 8:30 am-5:30 pm, Monday-Friday, 5940 SW Hood Ave., Portland. For more information, call (503) 244-0726 or email
