All About Our Upcoming Honey Bee Workshops

The harvest season is finally here!
Join Bee The Future in learning about a bee that helped to pollinate your fruits and veggies. The honey bee is well know for its honey, but there are many other things to know about the hardworking bee.

Sept 20 - All About Beeswax: learn about beeswax, how it's made, how it has been used in the past and present and what are the benefits to this amazing bee product. We will be making beeswax lotion samples! Bring your own glass container. Snacks provided along with samples of local honey!

Sept 21 - Stone Soup (Lunch and Learn): enjoy an amazing stone soup! Bring a vegetable from your garden harvest or local vegetable to contribute to the soup. We will be making the soup as a group, and enjoying an engaging conversation about honey bees in this Lunch and Learn event. Bring your own bowl, spoon and inner poet! (There may be a small poetry slam)

Sept 27 - The Vanishing of the Bees: there is trouble in hives all over the world. With record disappearances of whole bee colonies, some are starting to worry about what this means for our food future. Join us for a documentary screening of "The Vanishing of the Bees" followed by discussion including solutions of what we can do to help the bees. Coffee, tea, juice and cookies provided.

  1. I live in a housing co-operative in East Vancouver and we are holding a Pollinator Garden/Mason Bee workshop this Sunday, Sept. 22 from 2-3:30 pm. Would someone be available to come and give a short presentation? Unfortunately because we are a non profit organization the only payment we could offer would be some great company, home made goodies, a decent cup of coffee and knowing that you are spreading the good work - and work - about bees, etc. Please don't hesitate to call if you are available or have any suggestions or recommendations. Thank you very much, Julia, cell: 778-999-1697
