A great crowd learning about mason bees
People come form near and far to learn about mason bees.
The interest is high when gardeners bring in their nests. Every nest tells a story.

Jodine has joined us at Beediverse. If you are a store manager, you might just see her zipping around garden stores. Or if you attend one of Beediverse mason bee workshops, she will be there to show you how easy it is to care for mason bees. And what fun!

New Instore signage
Our new in-store signage is led by “Hank ” our mason bee mascot.

In the centre of the hall apple varieties were on display.
On the periphery of the hall there were all kinds of vendors from food to heirloom tomato seeds, to fruit trees and of course our table of mason bee homes and more.

It always amazes me to view all the apple varieties at the Saltspring apple festival, and then eat an apple slice with a known apple variety!
Here are a few that attracted my attention.
