YOU CAN HELP: Get West Seattle Bee Garden ready for fall

(WSB file photo)

One of West Seattle’s unique treasures needs some autumn TLC this weekend, and you are invited to volunteer. Here’s the announcement we were asked to share:

Maintenance Day at the West Seattle Bee Garden:

This volunteer day will be this Sunday, September 24th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Tasks will include building raised garden beds, transferring soil into these built garden beds, cleaning the apiary, and pulling weeds. Please make sure to dress appropriately (gloves, rain gear, covered shoes) for the weather and bring any tools you think would be necessary for these tasks. The garden has a limited supply of tools.

Volunteers will get a chance to meet with WSBG founder Lauren to get to know the history of the garden. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up using the following form to get a good head count to make sure there are enough refreshments.

Sign up here!

The Bee Garden is on the north side of High Point Commons Park, at Graham/Lanham.

    Hey there. My son and I were walking past the bee house a couple weeks ago and saw a big black beetle type of bug attacking and killing a bee. We watched them for a couple minutes in a tree next to the bee house. The bee did not stand a chance against whatever this was. My picture is terrible unfortunately.anyone know what this is? It was about two inches long (much larger than the bee) and black, and took off with the bee. ­čś×center of picture 

Sorry, comment time is over.
