Eugene, Ore. – Travel Lane County's nearly 600 members are recognized for providing unmatched service to visitors enjoying experiences throughout the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region.  What residents and visitors may not be as familiar with are the many ways members give back to the community by supporting local events, through collaboration with the business community and through creative and unique fundraising activities featuring their products and services.

WildCraft Cider Works is a leader in creating partnerships with the community and turning the proceeds from these endeavors into support for community groups and programs.  They've done it again with the "For the Love of Lilac" cider release.  Lilac blossoms collected from community donations this spring have been delicately crafted into a cider that will be released Saturday, July 30 at the Lane County Farmers Market.  Taste it, buy a bottle and help the School Garden Project .  The School Garden Project works with over 1,000 students in the Eugene, Springfield and Bethel school districts to create and sustain gardens on school property.  Their programs, "helps children become healthy adults who eat their fruits and vegetables, know the basics of growing food, and contribute to a thriving community."
