The Bee Wise Beekeepers mandate is to provide a forum for education, engagement and experience for those interested in learning more about beekeeping through regular meetings, workshops, idea-sharing discussions, and socializing. We wish to increase community awareness of the importance of bees to our food supply. Several exciting community projects will kick off in 2018.
Please feel free to join the Bee Wise Beekeeping Facebook group: www.facebook.com/beewisebeekeeping/ to see updates on upcoming meetings and events.

Foods of the Fundy Valley receives grant from Whole Kids Foundation for Bee Hives!
Foods of the Fundy Valley recently received a monetary grant from Whole Kids Foundation which will be used by the Bee Wise Beekeeping group to create bee awareness. The group will purchase an observational hive that can be taken primarily into schools to educate children on the importance bees and show them how the inner workings of the hive. The group will also purchase a fixed hive that will be placed in the Fundy Region where children can come visit to see the bees in action. The fixed hive will allow other interest groups to view the workings of a bee hive. The Bee Wise group will also plant a pollinator garden around the hive. Foods of the Fundy Valley will spread the word about when they will be planting the pollinator garden if you would like to come help!
