For the Love of Bees is a citywide project in Auckland that has been live for six months. The steadily growing community is creating some serious momentum towards making Auckland the safest city in the world for bees. You can read more about this initiative on their website here.
If you’re in the Auckland area in September, here are some events coming up:
10-1pm at 257 Symond Street (the community garden)
This is the last class this winter with expert Permaculturist Trish Allen. Use this class to learn about how the city is applying permaculture to the new Biodynamic/Permaculture market garden being developed in the inner city.
10-12pm in Victoria Park. We meet at Campbell Free Kindergarten building and then move across to the hives in the Park.
This class is designed to help everyone get closer and more comfortable with bees. The class is run every first Sunday of the month until the end of 2018.
Sponsored by Duracell.
