Is the future of bees in the City?
Who's looking after your Water?
Destructive Agriculture & Your WATER:
On Thursday February 26th, the SENS presentation will confirm why it's crucial for
communities to look after their water and have a say about the agriculture we allow
in our community.*
Even farms that are under the 'Environmental Farm Plan' can cause severe long term
water pollution - Come hear what has happened to a whole community in Spallumcheen
due to a factory dairy, and find out if, and how, citizens can protect their own

On the GMO Front:
US approve GM non-browning apple
Although not approved in Canada, this apple is engineered by 'Okanagan Specialty
Fruits'. If approved by Canadian regulators, this would be the second GM fruit on
the market anywhere in the world, after a US-grown papaya, and it would be the first
GM fruit grown in Canada.
Approvals of genetically engineered trees
just over our border could put Canada's forest ecosystems at risk. The loblolly
pine is grown in the US southeast but what forest trees could the US government
approve next? PS: Despite warnings from scientists, Canada continues to permit
field tests of transgenic forest trees.
Glyphosate worst threat than GM crops
According to Tony Mitra, Glyphosate is a greater health risk, proven, than GMO.
Glyphosate combined with vaccine additives make a drastically more dangerous
cocktail of poison. Glyphosate is in more things than just our food, and is killing
more than just humans. Glyphosate is now being used even on non-GMO crops as
desiccant, so it is expected to have higher concentration on non-GMO food than even
on GMO crops. Lastly, without Glyphosate, a majority of the GMO (roundUp ready
crops) will automatically die off. IN other words, eradicating GMO will not stop
Glyphosate, but eradicating Glyphosate will more or less kill the largest swatch of
GMO. So, at least in my view, Glyphosate is to be the primary target of my energy.
The only thing worse is, 2,4-D is coming, together with Glyphosate and smart stacks.
'Dr. Vrain agrees: ' “The problem may not be GMO's, but rather the RoundUp that
comes with it”

With the growing presence of urban beekeeping there is hope for bees. The environment in cities are changing. They are leading the North American wave to provide healthy environments. Cities addressed issues of the time more responsibly than provincial and federal governments. This is likely due to to main political factors of local governments. Lack of party politics and the ability to it citizens to see and respond to actions of the government.
Our mentoring program will help you bee a better urban beekeeper. Click Mentoring for more information. We have three hive styles developed from our bee breeding system.
- The standard Langstroth hive.
- Our x frame hive.
- Our 1/4 frame hive.
