Celebrate Pollinator Week With Us!
I'll be with my fellow bee nerds this weekend at a couple of events. Please join us and ask any bee gardening questions.
Celebrate Pollinator Week at South Hill Library Branch! Meet a trio of bee-huggers who can help you help the pollinators in your neighbourhood.
Erin Udal from the Environmental Youth Alliance will show you some of the bees she's collected in Vancouver. (Spoiler alert, they can't sting you.)
Brian Campbell, a Master Beekeeper, Master Gardener and servant to bees of all stripes will answer all your beekeeping and bee gardening questions.
Lori Weidenhammer, an artist/bee gardener will be the Seed Librarian in residence, "lending" seeds you can grow to feed the bees.
If it's not raining we'll be outside the front entrance to the library, but if it's wet, we'll take cover inside the library.
We'll be giving away free seeds while supplies last.
When: Saturday June 20, from 11 am to 1 pm.
Main Street Car Free Day is this Sunday!!!!!!!!
Join Brian Campbell and Madame Beespeaker at the Little Mountain Neighborhood House from 1-3 pm to learn about hosting bumblebees in your garden. Find out about plans for a new community garden in Riley Park.
