Here is Margriet  showing crowd of 40 people at Amsterdam Nursery how to clean their harvested cocoons.  This young lass is particularly interested in the process. 

  On lookers are keen to see the process too.

 

There is always lots of interest in mason bee workshops.  People are keen to learn about this beneficial critter. 

Workshops and seminars are such a fun way to learn.

 Here I am doing a show-and tell of how to set up mason bee houses and how to protect mason bee homes from those tiny pesky parasitic wasps.

At Amsterdam Nursery, Pitt Meadows, BC,  their heated greenhouse makes a fine ‘room’ for workshops.

It is always fun to share information with gardeners who have just started  or have managed mason bees for several years.

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.

Here is Margriet – owner of Beediverse doing a seminar. 

A ‘thank you’ to Lidy from Amsterdam Nursery for photos.

Plums and strawberries

      Plums and strawberries.  Yumm! 

       Fruit depends on a bees visiting flowers  and thus produce these

        luscious fruit.

 

New Instore signage

 

 

 

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

  The large overhead arrow shows customers where Beediverse products are located in the store.

 

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.

 

Harry Burton- Thanks Harry for putting on a great show every year!
