About Us

“Feed the Bees” is a dynamic partnership between the Earthwise Society and the Delta Chamber of Commerce. Both organizations are based in Delta, British Columbia, Canada.

Established in 2008, the goal of the Feed the Bees campaign is to encourage individuals, businesses, organizations and governments to support a healthy and sustainable bee population, and plant gardens to feed pollinators and encourage biodiversity in our community.

The project will educate the community about the importance of bee populations for local agriculture and ecosystems and encourage people to take action to provide food and habitat for bees and pollinators. This includes planting bee-friendly plants in public and private gardens, adopting mason bee hives and other initiatives.

The project’s initial Steering Committee included Earthwise Society, Delta Chamber of Commerce, Delta Farmers Institute, Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust and the BC Ministry of Agriculture Provincial Apiculturist.
