Facilitating the creation of a Bee Safe Neighborhood

We change the system by changing the way we interact with it. Each additional human we can engage in the new interaction is potentially an exponential increase in the rate of change. Humans (and all living things) engage in interactions to obtain something they value. This course will give you a place to start in that process.

We start with a simple request, 'help us help the bees. All you have to do is stop using systemic poisons'. That is the beginning of building a community that is working together to improve the habitat for humans and other living things. The next step is to improve the habitat for pollinators in your neighborhood.

• We will have permaculture practitioners to talk about appropriate plantings and what services they offer to help you design and build a productive and bee friendly garden.

• We will have people who are propagating plants for pollinators discussing how you can begin propagating your own plants.

•  We will have plants for sale.

This class is a part of a series of classes designed to expose you to the intricacies of natural systems. The full series is 11 classes over a year, each appropriate to the season, that demonstrate how humans can participate in the cycles of the natural world and enhance the habitat for humans and other living things. The class is free because the people who could be most powerful in building these new systems cannot afford to pay a fee to attend classes. If you can afford to pay a fee, there is no better investment in the future of this planet than supporting the work of the Living Systems Institute. See the full course list.

As the saying goes, there is no bad weather, only insufficient clothing. We will hold this event unless there is a blizzard or something and we may modify the schedule of activities if necessary for safety or comfort. We have placed no limit on attendance but, if you RSVP and then cannot come, please change your RSVP so that we can have an idea of what actual attendance might be.

Thank you for improving our habitat,
David Braden

    This crowd was a little sparse but there was a lot of great information for those who made it.

    I posted a link to the explanation of what we mean by a healthy habitat in the text above. I may help your understanding of what we are doing. http://livingsystemsinst.org/content/healthy-or-sterile

      Since this is an open house my daughter would like to come with me, but only has about 2 hours. Is this enough time to be beneficial

      Two hours will be enough time to get a feel for what we do if not answer all your questions. Please drop by if you can.

    If you want to learn summer pruning of an apple tree, stop by my table and ask. I'd be happy to show you.- Judith Moran

    My husband, Dan will be going on my behalf as I have another committment at the same time. We have a spruce tree infected with the Ips beetle that will be coming down as soon as the nearby flowering bushes full of bees are done for the season. He is tasked with finding plants that will replace the spruce, to support more bees and birds.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
