Lavender Wind Farm hosts mothers, others

Two women bring their unique skills to Lavender Wind Farm on Saturday, May 8, the day before Mother’s Day. Shirley Jantz will “have you walking on air” when she gives Foot Reflexology sessions, or learn how to make paper that you can plant in the Seed Paper Making Class with Sunni Bergeron.

Jantz is trained in several healing arts including reiki healing touch therapy, reflexology, T’ai Chi and Qigong. She has her reflexology studio in Langley and teaches Qigong at the Island Pilates Center in Langley. The reflexology sessions on May 8 at Lavender Wind Farm’s Gazebo will cost $1 a minute with a 20-minute minimum. You can sign up at the Farm’s Gift Shop or contact Shirley at 360-221-6296, or

Or you can join Sunni Bergeron as she teaches us how to make Seed Paper that you can plant. It makes beautiful gift cards. Each student will be making her or his own paper by dipping lavender and cotton plant pulp from a vat and adding seeds to it. Required supplies: packets of seeds (which you can bring or buy some extras from the farm) and your enthusiasm. Wear something you can get dirty in as we’ll be playing in water and sloshing it all around. Maximum students is eight; cost is $20 Per person plus any supplies you buy.

Mothers and others are welcome to join Shirley, Sunni for these pampering opportunities, as well as wander through the gardens and labyrinth to reflect on the beauty of Mother Earth.

For additional information on the events on May 8 at the farm, contact Sarah Richards at 678-0919, or visit
