Almost every month we organize one or several events so that we can explore places of local interest. This could be a tour of a factory processing essential oils in Mormoiron, or the atelier of a fire-blower in Isle sur la Sorgue, the Lavender museum in Coustellet & Altera Rosa in Avignon. There was once the opportunity to taste local wines in Cairanne. We usually have a meal in a restaurant before the event or afternoon tea in an outstanding tea-room.
These events are arranged by our committee and are paid for by members. Non-members are also welcome at a small premium. All members are encouraged to make suggestions for future outings.
