Beediverse will be at the Saltspring Apple Festival with Beediverse products and show and tell items.

If you live or are visiting British Columbia,Canada in October 2011 come and visit Saltspring Island.  This is a great opportunity to meet the growers of apples and other local foods, taste many different apple varieties, try the tasty apple pies and meet some of the vendors at the Hall.  Dr. Margriet Dogterom

Here is the information from Harry Burton, the organizer.
“We’d like to let you know about a very special little Apple Festival that happens every fall on Salt Spring Island.   It will give you an “apple experience” like you have never imagined.  It is purposely kept non-commercial and farm related.  Where else can you 
-find over 350 varieties of apples, all grown organically, 
-connect with all the farms that grow those apples, 
-taste about 100 varieties of apples at just one of the farms,
-see a labeled display of over 300 apple varieties.
-taste labeled apple pies baked with 15 apple varieties.  The Pie Ladies baked about 150 apple pies in 2010.
-experience an apple history going back to 1860
-get to enjoy a tremendous varieties of lunches right at the farms – a culinary adventure.
-taste fresh apple juice made from specific apple varieties.
-experience over 20 varieties of red flesh apples.  That is why we call Salt Spring “APPLE HEAVEN.”      Sunday, OCT 2, 2011
