Lavender: Let your nose, and this map, be your guide
Adding to plans for the Willamette Valley Lavender Festival and Plein Air Art Show in July, Taste Newberg is also promoting the Newberg Lavender Trail, an online guide and map.
Available in paper form in the visitor's center at the Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce, 112 N. Garfield St., #103, the maps can also be found at TasteNewberg.com/lavendertrail and point seekers to lavender sno-cones, cocktails, wellness products and more.
"Every summer the fields around Newberg … burst into purple bloom and the air is scented with aromatic lavender," a release from Taste Newberg, an organization founded by the city of Newberg, said. "With lavender at its peak in July, Newberg artisans, makers, chefs and bartenders are embracing the herb and incorporating it into treats and local wares best enjoyed before or after a trip to the u-pick fields."
