Pollinator Week in Lil’ Rhody!

We’re buzzing with glee because today kicks off the first day of Pollinator Week in Rhode Island! Bees play an integral part in agriculture, the ecosystem, and overall health of the environment and people. You can show your support by going to the Whole Foods Market University Heights and participating in their “Share the Buzz – Cast Your Vote!” raffle to vote for which of 3 local non-profits you would like to receive a fully equipped beehive (sans bees)! You can vote for Southside Community Land Trust where we hope to use at our Open Garden Day Tour event in the Fall.

Other Pollinator Week events —

• Whole Foods Market University Heights is hosting a free class called “Biodynamics, Bees and Borage” TODAY, June 18th at 7pm.

• Whole Foods Market is also hosting a free screening of Queen of the Sun at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island in Bristol on June 26th.  Click here for more info and reserve seats.

• Show your support for Pollinator Week and Southside Community Land Trust by attending the Whole Foods Market University Heights Block Party event Friday, June 22nd from 4pm to 6pm. There will be a yummy Ice Cream Social where customers can choose which of the 3 non-profits to donate the $5 to, and learn more about your organization to cast their vote.
