I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been presented with the 2015 LIFT Award from the United States Lavender Growers Association! 😀

Here’s the initial announcement and when I receive the award, I’ll post pictures!
At the Annual USLGA meeting on January 13, 2016, Mary Tate Bergstrom was presented the 2015 LIFT (Lavender Ideas for Tomorrow) Award. Her knowledge of computer technology and exceptional organizational skills were key to the creation of the United States Lavender Growers Association and the USLGA website connecting lavender growers across the U.S.

In March 2014, USLGA introduced the “LIFT” Award. LIFT stands for “Lavender Ideas for Tomorrow” and recognizes the contribution, innovation, influence and ideas of those in the lavender industry. The LIFT Award is given to those whose passion, actions, and innovations encourage and shape the lavender industry in the US. USLGA honors these pathfinders because they offer us something new, a better method, a new invention, an artful design, inspiration, and passionate advocacy. The LIFT Award acknowledges their significance, influence, and contribution.

This is last year’s recipient’s award:
