— from Paul King for Orcasong —
Pelindaba and Orcasong today announce a long-term strategic alliance to significantly expand Lavender production in the San Juan Islands.
“Escalating demand for our broad portfolio of all-natural lavender-based products across the country has prompted our desire to significantly expand our environmentally friendly organic lavender plantings,” said Stephen Robins, founder/owner of Pelindaba.
“Today, we forge a game-changing alliance using the combined resources of Pelindaba and Orcasong to accelerate the development of our highly compatible objectives and opportunities.
“Pelindaba’s vertically integrated model of sustainable agriculture enables us to preserve farmland from further development, protect it from pollution, create employment opportunities for our fellow islanders and provide a destination of natural beauty for islanders and visitors alike.
“Orcasong and Pelindaba share a common vision of creating and developing initiatives that improve life in the San Juan Islands, benefit the local community, and meet growing demand in a sustainable way. This alliance is another step in that direction and a natural extension of our core interests,” said Paul King, Chief Operating Officer of Orcasong.
“Just as Orcasong has done with investments in our existing businesses, we see this new collaboration as yet another example of our commitment to regenerating agricultural land into beautiful, productive open spaces that represent the next level of opportunity for growers to drive yield and productivity using sustainable practices while preserving our islands’ natural resources.”
