My first year with the bees was not very successful honey wise but lots of information was learned and passed onto community garden members. Many bee fears were overcome by many community passerbyes. The smell was delicious all summer. There were many notes and positive comments about how wonderful it was to have the bees there. The children in the neighbourhood really enjoyed the raspberries and climbing the trees. The new flowes, fruit trees and ground covers that were planted did very well. The pictures show the 3 new boxes and then later the very successful red clover and new fruit trees. The rest of them are the bee houses and enclosure and then the bees working hard. The bees seemed very happy and we look forward to them coming back next year.
Neighbourhood Small Grants
We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.More by this author
