Bored of early retirement and their urban waterfront condo, Heather and Arleigh Fair bought eighty acres in the heart of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley. Today at the Tuscan Farm Gardens they tend to a variety of distinct gardens, grow and harvest fields of Lavender and Echinacea, run a bed and breakfast, and mind a shop selling natural products that they make on-site. Come learn to make gourmet lavender jelly! Enjoy the healthy benefits of this fragrant flower in a home-made spread that can be a refreshing dessert, or the perfect accompaniment to lamb, roast or rabbit.
