West Queen West​

West Queen West created Toronto’s first bee-friendly streetscape, lining a section of Queen Street with large, artfully decorated, concrete planters and bee hotels that make pollinators feel at home in Canada’s largest city. The BIA also organizes educational events where the local community can learn about gardening for pollinators. For this, Bee City Canada has recognized West Queen West as the first Canadian Bee Business.
Rob Sysak of WQW BIA told us about the rustic-looking bee hotels installed in several planters.
