Killing pollinators is like emptying our pantry of much of its contents.David Suzuki Foundation
Why this cause is important for everyone
One in three bites of food we eat is a courtesy of insect pollination.
It's also important to know that 90% of the world’s flowering plants depend on pollinators to reproduce. The disappearance of bees disrupts the ecosystem of the planet.
Pollinators are struggling to survive among growing threats to their homes and health.
Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides continue to have drastic effects on pollinating populations.
As a lavender producer and an inhabitant of this precious planet, we have a duty to protect bees and promote their survival, as they are of vital importance. Moreover, lavender is particularly appreciated by bees, so our lavender farm is a place of choice for them.
Who is bee city canada?
Bee City Canada’s mission is to inspire cities, towns, First Nations, schools, businesses and other organizations to take action to protect pollinators.
To do this, Bee City Canada supports all of the above organizations in creating healthier and more diverse habitats for bees, giving these valuable pollinators a chance to survive and prevent their extinction.
Finally, Bee City Canada organizes educational sessions, mostly in schools, to raise awareness among teachers and students about the impacts that humans have on bees and the different ways in which people can protect them.
Our concrete actions
We don’t use pesticides on our lavender fields.
We distribute an informative card to visitors at our lavender farm in order to raise awareness of this cause among as many people as possible. This card, which is also added to orders made on our online store, gives several ideas of concrete actions people can take to help bees and other pollinators to survive.
We inform and share facts and information about bees in our newsletters and on our social media.
We have created an information station on bees at our lavender farm.
We have created many habitats especially designed for bees at our lavender farm, such as bee hotels.
We sell lavender plants at our lavender farm. This plant is really appreciated by bees.
