Our Story:

Sue’s Lavender and More, a local lavender business located in Manchester, Washington, has to expand to keep up with the growing demand for vegetable starts and lavender plants.

Sue’s Lavender and More first started in 2009, and sold at one local farmer’s market. Since then, we have expanded to four (4) farmer’s markets, fairs, festivals, and shows, and in April of this year, we will open our first retail space in the new Port Orchard Public Market.

Each market season, the requests for more vegetable starts and lavender plants increases, especially vegetables starts.

To meet the demands, and to ensure that our plants are grown organically, we need to install a greenhouse, and are asking the public and our customers for assistance.

Present Operations:

Currently, we have a very limited means of starting plants, and it is very weather dependent:

The plants are started in my garage on two (2) racks with grow lights. After the plants have a strong and established root system, they are transplanted into 4” pots and placed outside on tables to further grow. The problem with this system, is the very limited space reducing the number of plants that can be started, and the weather.   To be ready for the April start of the market season, the plants need to be started in February.   There is no way to protect the young plants from late frosts or cold snaps. With the addition of a greenhouse to our growing operations, we can help eliminate these problems.

In addition to the various vegetable and lavender plant starts, there has been numerous requests for perennials. With the addition of a greenhouse, we plan on expanding our operations to include these requests.

How Will Your Donation Be used:

The funds raised will go toward the purchase of a 96 sqft greenhouse (8' x 12'), cement for a pad, anchors for the greenhouse, and various equipment such as automatic vent openers, misters, fans, heaters, etc.
