Lavender Park Perfumes & Magic Of Pollino

Organic Farm Campotenese of Morano Calabro Let's discover together Parco della Lavanda, the Provence of southern Italy. Best flowering period from June 30th to August 5th. True lavender (L. Angustifolia). it is a plant that grows spontaneously in the whole area of the Pollino National Park, at altitudes between 900 and 1300 meters above sea level, particularly common in the Campotenese area. From a research carried out among the local elders, it emerged that until the middle of the last century, the harvest of spontaneous lavender was a source of income for the local populations. In particular, the districts 'Colice' and the 'estate of the princess' up to the district 'Campiglione', the district 'Barbalonga' up to 'Campizzo' were particularly rich in lavender. Here it was collected with the scythe and taken to a fountain near the district 'Laccata' where in part it was 'cooked' (distilled) and partly sold directly to the pharmaceutical industry Carlo Erba of Genoa. Following the reforestation works, done in the years 50/60, a large part has disappeared and today the specimens present are in insignificant quantities. Hence the idea of ​​cultivating this spontaneous variety in the open. Having established that it is a quality product, this plant has been given a name "Loricanda", so we can think of going further, looking for the possible outlets and undertaking the consequent initiatives. The idea and the company "Parco della lavanda" were born, as a model of reproducible development, to cultivate lavender to protect the territory. The company aims to spread the cultivation of lavender to redevelop mountain or marginal rural environments where environmental degradation and abandonment loom, where conventional agriculture is not profitable or is in competition with wildlife. The agricultural project Parco della Lavanda has been chosen with the primary objective of protecting the territory, convinced to bring development and arouse interest. Lavender agriculture is sustainable only if organic. Since the lavender has antiseptic properties, in the mountains it is particularly free from pests and does not require interventions with pesticides. The social and cultural aspect must also be considered a priority. La vitalità dei piccoli centri e delle zone marginali è legata alle attività economiche fiorenti in loco. Trasformare il prodotto agricolo Lavanda, è un po’ più che un’attività di nicchia, centinaia sono i prodotti trasformati della Lavanda: cosmetici, alimentari, erboristici e ornamentali. Le lavorazioni sono adatte all’imprenditorialità e al lavoro femminile, e offrono una buona integrazione al reddito agricolo.

The Garden of Lavenders

The attempt to spread the knowledge of this plant as much as possible, has given rise to the need to create within the company the Lavender Park., A thematic garden with the main purpose of enhancing "the cultural, recreational and teaching ... ". It was conceived thinking of a sort of "botanical garden" where to see, observe, learn to distinguish the various types of lavender combined with each other based on development and color. To give priority to the didactic aspect, the company also offers the possibility to learn: 1) The technique with direct experience, reproduction of plants by cuttings and planting of the same; 2) Drying, processing and use of flowers; 3) The steam distillation technique which transforms the fresh flower into "essential oil" by means of a didactic distiller; 4) Information on how and why lavender oil is used; 5) The soap-making technique (cold soap production) with the addition of lavender oil, also through direct experience. 6) Creation of scented chalks; 7) Creation of scented candles.
