Zions Bank's Smart Women Grant.

Hi Carli ~~

We are very pleased to have awarded you a Smart Women Grant. You certainly have a worthy project, and it is indeed our privilege to be a small part of your effort.

We would like to honor you at a reception on Tuesday, November 10th and present you with your funds. The reception will be in this building on the 18th floor in the “Founders Room” at 4:00, and we certainly hope you can arrange your schedule to attend. Please let me know. We may ask that you be a bit early so that press pictures can be taken, but I’ll let you know about that later.

Fall Garden

Because Eden gets winter a little before the Valley we had to complete all of our "winterizing" this past week. The transplanting, planting, trimming and splitting are all done.

Here is a picture of what we call a "Turtle Mound". We suggest to all lavender owners to hedge down your lavender every fall. This ensures a dense regrowth for the next year and it prevents it from splitting in the center.
Our Kiwi finally took off! (They are Alaskan Kiwis-so they will survive the winter)

Our focus now is to get a roof and walls on the garden shed before it snows. We are saying our prayers that there are a few more nice days so we can get it all done. (the bugs are praying too)

Customer Response

"I recieved my order already!!! I'm thrilled and thanks too for including the extra bar of soap. I'll check back on the website to see if you have anything special going on for Christmas etc.

We love our Customers, wherever they live.

Greetings from Illinois,

I was lucky enough to purchase some of your wonderful soaps while out in Utah this last week. Is there a way to order online? Thanks for any assistance you can provide. The product is one of the best I have used in years.

The Garden Shed

My dad is amazing. He is the Brains and the Buff to our family business. He has owned many companies over the years from building houses to building the fastest fishing boat in the world. So, when Lavender Hill needed a shed/greenhouse, he was our guy! He is an Engineer, so he is able to "customize" the garden shed with all of the special details that my mom "requests". Here are a few pictures of his progress. The corner posts, gravel for the base interior, walls, Ed himself and the roof trusses.

Harvest Moon on 25th Street

Harvest Moon was Amazing. The bike races, the skateboard ramp and the fun events for the kids. There was a band or a singer on every block. There was pumpkin painting, face painting, basket ball, you name it. Our booth was by the Federal building, so we were able to watch the races all morning. Kudos to the event coordinators!

25th Street Market

We have found a little corner (right next to the band stage) at the 25th Street Farmer's Market. Every Saturday there are hundreds of people buying fresh produce and hand made crafts. The morning starts with yoga classes, Master Gardeners giving plant advice, cooking demonstrations and then last, music. It is sad that October 3rd will be the last market day for the season.

Taste Of Ogden

This summer we attended the Taste of Ogden at Wolf Mountain. An event for your taste buds. Local resturants served samples of thier menue for just a few dollars. This was the weekend where we debued our Lavender Dark Chocolate. Yummm!
