ROSSLAND REAL FOOD: Big bees, little bees, let’s help the bees…

Entomologist Lynn Westcott is coming back to Rossland for another round of talks and demonstrations about native bees. On April 12,  she’ll lead a workshop on the biology, ecology and habitat needs of native bees.  Part of this workshop  will be similar to what Lynn covered in last year’s workshop, in that she will describe the biology and ecology of locally occurring native bees, and discuss the important roles they play in natural, urban and agricultural areas.

Rossland REAL Food’s Second Annual Seedy Sunday & Movie at the Miners’ Hall on March 11

Starting to think about gardening and buying seeds for the fruitful season ahead? Some of the best local seed growers in the West Kootenays will have seeds for sale at Rossland’s annual Seedy Sunday at the Miners' Hall from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on March 10.

The seed swap will be followed by a scrumptious $5 vegetarian dinner, a cash bar, and a highly acclaimed documentary on bees—Queen of the Sun —at 6:30 p.m., also for $5.
