Welcome, Melissa.


Main Street is beecoming a more fertile place every day.  Now we need to plant more for the bees to consume and pollinate.  


On Monday evening the 21st (10 days away) we are meeting at the Cityview Church at 28th and Sophia for a potluck and our "Seed Library" opening day.  We will be distributing dozens of species of edible plant seeds, mostly organically grown, locally adapted, and packaged and sold by small BC seed providers.  They'll be free with the proviso that they just be used and that you agree to tell us what happened with them.

Please come, for the potluck, seed sharing, or both.

We'll be repeating this event in early April (probably Tuesday April 5), and we hope to distribute more seeds then.

Then dance for your bees to tell them where the food is.
