My name is Carolyn Young, my daughter Erica and I are flower farmers in Caledon Ontario and are passionate about saving the bees. We have a beautiful garden were we grow mostly flowers for retail and wholesale and also teach courses on flower arranging and we also have a small gift shop were we sell macrame and also Bee products like honey and bees wax candles.
We are committed to helping the bee population by planting so many flowers that the bees can enjoy and also using products that are bee friendly and going organic whenever possible. We have been looking for a bee charity to support and think that Bee City is such as great organization, and we would love to be a partner and contribute to its further success. We have some exciting commitments that we made in our application and looking at other ways we can help including harvesting seeds to give to customers like bee balm, which make sure a gorgeous plant that the bees love and help people plant bee friendly plants all over our area.
We have included some pictures that we love and always get comments when we post them on Instagram where the bees have fallen asleep in our flowers. It is so exciting to see.
We are flower farmers and grow all kind of flowers that bees love including some of our favourites: Bee Balm, Dahlias, and so many others. We try to use organic methods or best control and fertilizers for make sure the bees are not harmed. We also try to ensure that we use as little packaging as possible and use recyclable products. We also use recycled macrame cord. We try to sell items in our store that have a bee theme like honey, bees wax candles.
We have people at our farm and teach courses and want to incorporate how important the bees and promote Bee City so that people are aware of the organization and can help get the word out about how important bees are.
