For the Love of Bees


Vancouver gardens were looking spectacular once again this year! And we can credit in part those “green thumbed” folks, but we can’t forget the bees. Not just the fuzzy little bumblebee, or the sweet little honeybee, we also have to credit the native pollinator, the mason bee.
Mason bee homes seem to be growing in numbers around the city, in parks and community gardens, but for those interested in getting into mason bee care, those little wooden boxes can pretty expensive to buy or seem a little hard to make.
Well lucky you for finding us. You can build your own mason bee home for free!

Bee the Future is a community workshop funded by a Vancouver Greenest City Grant.
Saturday, September 8th from 12-2:30pm at Kiwassa Neighbourhood House.
