Join Pollinator Partnership Canada in celebration of #PollinatorWeek as we co-host an Open House event at the Yates Street Community Garden. We are celebrating the unveiling of the native bee apiary that has been installed at the community garden, funded by the City of Victoria’s first Participatory Budgeting Process. There will be opportunities for members of the public to become engaged in community gardening, local and urban food production, and pollinator conservation and habitat creation.
Our co-hosts: City of Victoria, Habitat Acquisition Trust, Parks Canada, Capital Regional Food and Agriculture Initiatives Roundtable, the David Suzuki Foundation, the Downtown Residents Association, and the Yates Street Community Garden Association. We will be providing entertaining activities for the kids, and education and fun for kids and adults alike.
There will be a scheduled talk by Dr. Lora Morandin about bees and the native bee apiary installation. City of Victoria will be providing information on their Boulevard Gardening Program , which offers opportunities to increase pollinator-friendly plantings throughout the City.
Snacks will be provided by WHOLE FOODS. Booths and activities will run from 11 am – 2 pm on Saturday June 23, 2018. Come join the fun!
