Welcome to our newly established "Evergreen Valley Lavender Farm" in Olympia, Washington. We are raising over 600 plants in 11 varieties like; Folgate, Fat Spike Grosso, Hidcote Giant, Betty's Blue, Impress Purple, Melissa (white), Tucker's Early, Royal Velvet, Gros Bleu, True Munstead, Purple Bouquet and Buena Vista.
Each variety has its own unique qualities and characteristics and we love growing them organically. Although our farm is not "certified" organic, we use no pesticides nor chemicals in our process.
We also distill some of our plants into essential oils and will make that, and many other craft items, available for sale in the coming months. Watch for us to open to the public in 2012.

Today, students from a new generation of Veterans are arriving on campus with the help of GI Benefits. For more information, visit http://www.ciachef.edu/admissions/veterans/.

Three Canadian Chefs travel to 10 countries across Asia in search for the most traditional regional dishes around. While they were at it, they learnt that food brings people and cultures together. Because of their quest they had met the most amazing people, had the most amazing adventures and experienced the cultures first hand which the average backpacker rarely sees.
Without Borders has now been turned in to a 13 part television series airing world wide.
