West Seattle Bee Garden: Final touches before Sunday celebration

May 18, 2013 at 6:39 pm | In Gardening, West Seattle festivals, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

Yet more West Seattle volunteers were hard at work today getting the West Seattle Bee Garden ready for its closeup – tomorrow is the West Seattle Bee Festival, including the parade from West Seattle Elementary to bring in the bees that will be living in the structure you see here. We visited two months ago when nothing more than timbers were standing in the Bee Garden’s spot at High Point Commons Park (Lanham/Graham), and now, tomorrow’s the big day, one year after Lauren Englund first went public here with her dream of a demonstration beehive to show people how vital honeybees are to our survival. The festival runs 11 am-3 pm tomorrow, including a picnic and various festivities in addition to the 11:30 am parade – which you can be part of, by the way, as explained here.

  1. Hurray for bees – they are a most important part of agriculture, and thus, our food supply!!
    Thank you Lauren for your all your hard work. You make a difference.
