Honoured to be in the Globe & Mail!

I was ecstatic to discover my little interview with Alex Blozikovic ( @alexbozikovic )last week turned into this little piece in the Globe & Mail today!

He covered our house and a few others from across the country that are striving to be green.  So, check it out~ it is wonderful to still be of interest even three years after we substantially completed it. (Don't ask what's still left to do!)... ** Blush **

We have bees! In our backyard! Yay!

Shelaine Sparrow from Living Ecology discovered this little bee hive (in the ground) while she was working in our yard!  I was surprised to learn they actually nest underground!  So, we've put some some pavers to protect this little hive of activity!

Shelaine is helping us this year get more done in our permaculture landscape. When you're overwhelmed, you need to call in professionals!

And in related news, we're happy the City is doing this pilot:

Coming to Backyards Soon: Urban Bee Keeping Pilot!
