Our June 8th meeting: Bees!
Please join us on June 8th, 7:00, in the Britannia LRC.
Allen Garr has been a beekeeper in Vancouver for more than 20 years. He currently keeps bees at VanDusen and UBC Botanical Gardens, on the roof of the BC Convention Center and at his home in Kitsilano. He holds a Beemasters Certificate from SFU and the Provincial Ministry of Agriculture. In 2015 he was awarded the city of Vancouver’s Greenest City Leadership award of excellence for his years of work as an advocate for urban beekeeping leading to bylaw changes that now allow the activity in Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver City and Richmond. He is also allergic to bee stings.
Allen will be speaking about the life of the Honey bee and its relationship to man as well as the role of native bees including mason bees and bumble bees. Weather permitting he will bring some bees to the meeting.
