Planting seeds gaining popularity in Lumby -- Bee SAFE workshop standing room only!

Media Release, for Immediate Release
LUMBY, March 10th, 2012.

On Friday March 9th, close to 20 people attended a workshop on acquiring seeds and producing successful seedlings at the Bee SAFE office in Lumby. This workshop given by Jane Emlyn, was the first of many to follow, and will be given again on Friday March 16th, from 3 to 4 PM due to popular demand. 

"More and more people want to start growing their own food and realize they can do it without using expensive chemicals" said Emlyn. "I only have a small plot of land myself, right in downtown Lumby, and yet I manage to grow most of the vegetables my family eats for most of the year. We are seeing more and more people wanting to eat organic food and knowing where it comes from".

More Bee SAFE workshops are planned and posted on the website at Upcoming workshops include "How to encourage wild bees" by Sharon Lawrence and "Permaculture Design and Principles" by Gord Hiebert of EcoDesign. Entrance is by donation. Evening workshops are also in the planning and Bee SAFE encourages everyone to let them know of workshops they would like to see as well as of the times when they are available to take them by phoning 778-473-3029 or emailing
