Plant Something BC Social Media Contest

‘The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the second best time is now’ – Chinese Proverb.

When you plant something for the bees, you’re making good things happen. From increasing property values to helping the local bee population; trees and plants provide us with a variety of benefits. Get your hands dirty, enter our contest and you might win a grand gardening prize.

Getting started is easier than you might think. All you have to do is visit a participating retailer and purchase your favourite bee friendly plant, or hire a participating landscaper who will create a gorgeous landscape from locally grown bee forage plants. Done. (See? Told you it was easy.)
