Local garden writer Bob Ewing and the Campbellton Bee City team are creating a “buzz” in this New Brunswick community. They have partnered with Gallery Restigouche to coordinate Pollinators at Work, a student art project. They are also working hard to share the message about buying pesticide-free plants for bee-friendly gardens in Campbellton and beyond.
Bee City Campbellton was launched when the Mayor of the City of Campbellton contacted myself, as President of the Restigouche Gallery, and asked if the Gallery were willing to become the organizing group for a Bee City Canada project.
A discussion with the other Board of directors resulted in our saying yes to what we believed was a worthy and much needed project.
