Beautiful lavender fields as far as the eye can see: this is what greeted us when we visited Bulgaria for the first time. The flowers are harvested by hand and some are made into lavender cushions by local crafts people. This strengthens the economic development of the region and provides and income for local seamstresses.
Around 70 locals collect leaves and flowers from the wild for our teas. We have also been able to contribute to the livelihood of another Bulgarian partner, Megaliti. He supplies us with marigold flowers and peppermint.
