 Which we will be making with both adults and children.  Strathcona Food Security Committee will build the frame with David Gowman, and  Rebeca Graham and Sharon Kallis will lead the Strathcona Elementary Students in weaving bee-friendly housing forms. Erin Udal from Environmental Youth Alliance will lead in the design requirements for  native bees and teach the students ( and adults) what bees need from us to thrive. Stay tuned for work party info and for the house to be populated end of April.

Shade and Fence Weave

 A multi-part project, children in Strathcona March break camps and after school programs will assist us in weaving a pattern into the  chainlink fence and the youth from Raycam Community Centre shall learn basic building/weaving techniques under the tutelage of David, Sharon and Rebecca working with bamboo, willow and hazel from the Means of Production Garden and Sun Yat Sen Park. All of this will beautify our new home and work site, making it a shade friendly work zone.
