Hazelwood Herb Farm in North Oyster has been designated only the second ÉconoMusée pilot site in the province by the Société de développement économique de la Colombie-Britannique.
An ÉconoMusée is a craft or agri-foods business whose products are the fruit of an authentic technique or know-how. The business showcases artisans and craft trades by offering an area for interpreting its production and by opening its doors to the public.
Hazelwood offers a unique opportunity for visitors to see, smell and taste more than 400 different herbs cultivated and processed on site.
The Herbalism ÉconoMusée site provides an interactive learning setting where the public can find out about the traditional and contemporary applications of the herbalism trade in the processing of culinary, beauty and medicinal products.
Hazelwood joins Merridale Estate Cidery in Cobble Hill as an ÉconoMusée and among the 65 members of the international ÉconoMusée Network in Canada and northern Europe.
The farm is at 13576 Adshead Rd. For more information, please go to www.hazelwood
