My friend Liz Goldie was in the news again. This time it was a good thing. She had dropped by a local greenhouse to set up delivery for July for some bee-friendly wildflower seeds to distribute at Calgary’s Stampede. Before she could think or blink, she was captured by a MetroNews photographer while she was chatting with greenhouse horticulturalist Colin Hayles.
Greenhouses such as Golden Acre Home and Garden in Calgary have hired bee specialists to help select appropriate plants to help native (and honey) bees. Liz, a beekeeping instructor and a bee expert herself, made Calgary-specific requests to help backyard gardeners who want to help bees. Here’s the lead to the article which you can read at this link.
