This year we are planning The Kelowna Nectar Trail, and we’ve planned some great bee-related art projects and seminars!

Gabe Cipes (Summerhill Winery) will give us a hands on introduction to growing without pesticides in the Okanagan using a Biodynamic approach. We will be meeting outside come rain or shine, so dress for the weather!

He is V.P. of Demeter Canada, V.P. of Biodynamic Associations of BC (BDASBC) and a Director for the Certified Organic Associations of BC (COABC).

  1. This is a most refreshing approach to a difficult issue. Please remain and fortify your organization. Connect with similar movements which are emerging albeit with less of an inclusive artistic bent and flourish!
    Bravo.

  2. BeeWorkers!
    The Pollinating lectures and workshops over these last months have been enriching and wonderfully educational! I am excited about the upcoming exhibit & participating in the pollinator research with the Insight database!
