Bee Friendly

Grow Regina installed three Mason Bee Houses and planted dedicated bee flower beds to nurture our friends. The garden and orchard are pesticide free buzzing with healthy bees.

Bees as well as many other beneficial insects are welcome at Grow Regina. Bees are a key plant pollinator critical to producing the world food supply. There are 800 native species of bees in Canada most wild bees are solitary and non-aggressive.

Ian Monteith our bee expert plants and tends the bee flower bed.  Ian volunteers his time and talent to make a space for the native bees to thrive in our garden.

With any perennial or aggressively re-seeding annual, please be vigilant to ensure the plant does not spread to your neighbour’s garden or become a nuisance.


Billy Bee made a $10,000 donation to Grow Regina Community Gardens, Inc. in support of bee-friendly gardening initiatives.
