The Paper is where the Province of Canada fam curates and shares items of interest.
Arts, culture, music: aka things the citizens like.
La Maison Lavande
Let’s talk about Lavender. That's what Province of Canada’s co-founder Julie said when she saw an Instagram post about lavender farms in her home province of Quebec. We're highlighting La Maison Lavande as a destination point for every Canadian. Just shy of Montreal in the Lower Laurentian countryside are these beautiful purple fields, run by a family of lavender enthusiasts.
It’s no surprise that the Ferron-Joannette's (farm owners) were inspired by lavender fields in southern France; La Maison is a thing of beauty. Provence culture and style are breathed into every element of the House of Lavender. Guests experience vignettes of white sheets blowing in the rooftop breeze overlooking lavender rows, which is only complemented by a café serving up lavender-infused lemonade. We're highlighting our favourite features from La Maison Lavande that make it such a magical summer hangout.
Take a plant to-go and try your hand at harvesting your own lavender.
The Beautiful Swing
This is perhaps one of the most charming detail on Canadian soil.

We love the possibilities this venue opens up for photoshoots and special events.
To be honest, we haven't tried this, but we're definitely intrigued by what we see.

Even if lavender traces its origins to the Mediterranean coast, it can nevertheless grow in our cold Quebec winters. - La Maison Lavande
