That’s where ‘Levandulovna’ organic farm and social enterprise grows its fragrant flowers and produces all its wonderful healthy products. Lavender essential oils, bath salts, flower water, lavender cosmetics, soaps, teas, syrups, jams, cookies, scented bags and pillows, you name it! Beside contributing to entrepreneurial efforts in the region, the enterprise also provides part-time employment opportunities to disadvantaged women – single mothers, long-term unemployed or disabled, since the owner herself once has walked in those shoes.
