At the second-annual Ohio Lavender Festival, Jody Byrne will show off her two acres of lavender as well as the scented soaps, lotions, and cake mixes she makes out of the plant. “I didn’t create this beautiful setting,” she says. “Mother Nature did.” Along with tours of Daybreak Lavender Farm, today’s outing includes several craft-making sessions -- where folks can create beads out of rose petals and dream-catchers from twigs. Plus, lavender-based eats will be for sale. But because the farm has no parking lot, visitors must hitch a free ride on a shuttle bus that departs from a nearby Wal-Mart. Byrne then welcomes guests with her up-with-lavender homily: “It’s the only herb that can calm, balance, and stimulate. No other herb can be used in cakes, healing, crafts, and décor. You can’t say that about oregano.”
Sun., July 8, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
