Many Thurston County residents have fond memories of a lavender farm they remember flourishing at the intersection of Ruddell Road and Yelm Highway. Join Northwest Librarian, Mary Schaff, Washington State Library as she introduces you to L.J. Wyckoff, an amateur farmer whose single-minded dedication to the growing of lavender as an agricultural product set the stage for commercial lavender growing operations across the Pacific Northwest – and even further afield.
