Lori Weidenhammer aka Madame Beespeaker will talk about Telling the Bees, reviving a tradition of making messages for the bees and informing them of important events such as a death in the community. Participants will be provided with materials to make their own messages for the bees to take home or install in the meditation garden at Moberly.

Here's a beautiful video to watch over the winter months for those of us who take pleasure in seeing the bees work the flowers. This is a new bee garden in North Vancouver near Edgemont Village created by the Bee Friendly folks and their partners.
