This week is all about the Bees!

Our community office is honouring the amazing little creatures – and all the essential pollinators – by helping the community create some nourishment for them.

Bring a garden pot or two* by our office parking lot on Sunday May 26th between 11 am and 1 pm. We’ll fill them with wildflower seeds and local potting soil from our friends at TufTurf so we can co-create some beautiful flower offerings for our local pollinators.

Sunday May 26
11 am - 1 pm
4243 Glanford Ave.


Ever thought of beeing a beekeeper? We'll have Nairn Holloster from the Capital Region Beekeepers Association on hand to answer your questions about all things beekeeping! As well as displays from our friends at the Island Pollinator Initiative.

We're serving up local honey lemonade and have some honey sticks for the kids from Urban Bee.

Bring the whole family – and your pots!

Bee there!

Just can't get enough of this bee thing? After you have your pots filled - head over to see our friends at Swan Lake nature Sanctuary as they celebrate Bee Day on Sunday too - from Noon to 3 pm

You'll learn about how you can encourage bees in your backyards, about Bee songs, they'll have bee crafts and eve some bee spit to taste (really?)

Find out more on their website.

* This is while supplies last. Limit of two reasonable size pots so there's some for everyone. We'll have some small pots to give away as well - perfect for window sills.
