Urban spaces tend to be highly fractured ecologically, join Brian Campbell to learn how to make your neighbourhood more bee-friendly. Brian has a certificate in Permaculture Design, is a Certified Bee Master, and is very active in food security and conservation issues. Bumblebee biology and life cycles will be covered and you will learn some simple techniques to encourage and support these beautiful and important creatures. Help make bee corridors through our city environment so bees can continue helping us grow lots of food!
