One of my neighbours and fellow Village Vancouver member is into bees. Mary Bennett is also into art and has found a way to marry the two. She developed a series of Bee Walks to show off various hives and mason bee homes in the ‘hood, some of them quite artistic. Her next Bee Walk is part of the Earth Walks series hosted by the False Creek Watershed Society on Saturday July 21. If you be interested, register here.
Mary will also be one of the panelists at the UBC Liu Institute on July 27th at 6pm. The discussion will focus on bees and pollination through art, science, and community initiatives. The evening kicks off the opening of the sculptural installation by Charmaine Lurch, titled Things With Wings.
