Update Your Member Profile to get on USLGA Public Lists of Farms & Suppliers!

The USLGA Website has been redesigned so the public can find your farm or business!  These are the two new searches that have been built.

  • Find A Farm: A list of farms open to the public -- searchable by city or by state or by farm name
  • Find A Supplier: A list of USLGA members who supply plants, gifts, services to lavender growers. Where we can, we should support our own!

FOR THIS TO WORK -- you must update your member profile!

  • Growers who want their farm listed in the public search option to "Find a Farm" must update their Member Profile -- which involves entering the address you want showing to the public in the "Find A Farm" searches.   You must also enter your farm name under organization.
    There is a difference between your mailing address; and your (viewed by the) public address.
  • Growers who are also Suppliers must also update their profile to provide the Supplier List information category, contact details, link to your website.
  • Affiliates who are Suppliers need to update their profile, to provide Supplier List info, including link to your website. You must also enter your business name under organization.

With the new Member Profile, we encourage everyone to update their profile. This is an excellent time to re-visit the list of USLGA Volunteer Opportunities.  Note:  you can update your Member Profile at any time! 

STEPS are simple:

Link:                                https://www.uslavender.org/

Upper Right:                    MEMBER LOGIN button

Fifth Tab:                         MEMBERS AREA:  then choose MEMBER PROFILE drop-down

On the right side:            EDIT button

When you finish:              SAVE button

Helpful tip for all of us: If you use suppliers who are not USLGA members, encourage them to join USLGA. They can get listed on our Suppliers List which is viewed by about 400+ growers and shops.

The United States Lavender Growers' Association presents the 2019 United States
Lavender Conference (USLC) and Annual Meeting.

The United States Lavender Growers' Association hosts a conference every other year, offered in locations rotated throughout the United States.  We are pleased to announce that our USLC 2019 will be held Thursday, January 24 through Saturday, January 26, 2019 in the beautiful historical city of Charleston, South Carolina.  Experience the southern charm of Charleston as well as learning and sharing with fellow lavender growers and business owners.   

Our theme this year is: "Growing Your Lavender Business with Inspiration and Innovation"

Our 2019 conference celebrates the inspiration (the "why") each of us is drawn to lavender and building a lavender business, and the innovation (the "how") that so many lavender businesses have applied to diversify and have grown their businesses to be profitable and rewarding.

This conference will inspire you and educate you to continue to innovate and define the business model that makes sense for you.

We understand that each of you considering coming to the 2019 conference holds a different level of knowledge and interest, so we have planned the conference to benefit all levels of experience and a variety of topics aimed at building and growing your business; expanding and diversifying your products and services and of course, lavender farming. 

The conference kicks off with a networking cocktail hour and discussion on Thursday evening and follows with 2 days of intensive, informative, and inspiring speakers and workshops. 

During the day on Thursday, you can dive deeper and enhance your learning experience with optional all-day pre-conference activities including: “How to start a lavender farm”; “The art and science of distillation,” and a historical/agri-tourism excursion to a local plantation and farm.

The conference is also a wonderful opportunity to network and connect with fellow lavender growers, vendors and sponsors around the country.  In fact, the sharing and inspiration that comes from fellow attendees may be the biggest benefit of attending the conference.

Here is what past attendees said about our conference held January, 2017 in Mesa, Arizona: 

“This was our first conference and we were thrilled!  We met and networked with all kinds of folks!!”

“Thanks again to all the people who worked so hard.  It was excellent from start to finish”.

“Thank you to the speakers, and everyone who worked to provide this conference, it was amazing.  Looking forward to using the information on my farm.”

“Absolutely a fabulous experience.  We made a point of sitting with different people at each meal and had great times with all of them.” 

Don’t forget to come early or stay later!  Charleston has so much to offer that you should consider enjoying the area before or after the conference, as your discount rate will apply 3 days before and after USLC 2019, depending on hotel availability.
