As the Hastings Urban Farm Component of the project took shape and our collaboration with both the bees and local community developed in our project research, finding a way of highlighting some key community members seemed important to feature.
Out of this, The Hastings Bee Heroes was conceived.
The following posters have been placed on Hastings Street between Main and Abbott, along with hanging our Pollinator Zone Markers in areas that promote and sustain pollinators in the area. The markers were made by community participants in local workshops including processing the linen we grew, dying, spinning, waxing and finally knitting the markers.
Thank you to Community Arts Council Downtown Eastside Arts Foundation for the support to make this project possible.
