This project was started in the spring of 2017, with leadership from Nancy Holmes from UBC Okanagan. Private homes and businesses throughout Kelowna signed on to support wild pollinators by planting and maintaining gardens with pollinator-friendly flowers to help wild bees and other pollinators move safely through the urban landscape. In 2019 Border Free Bees (BFB) and Kelowna Museums also hosted workshops to help people become Travelling Bee Ambassadors.
I was not an organizer for this project, but I am interested in supporting it. I participate as a neighbour, and with my garden and I would like to continue supporting in any way I can, including with artwork or fundraising support.
