6 half barrels lashed with bamboo and metal binders create the space for….
native reclaimed plant stocks, bamboo from the (pandas at) toronto zoo, woody fiber, sawdust and sand which become habitat for native bees
the creation of habitat has always sat with me in a funny way, creating a shared dwelling for solitary bees like an architect designing ‘intentional communities’ or as a friend put it: a dating service for solitary bees; “BeeHarmony” :)
but we will see what the bees think, on a hill side in heart lake conservation area within brampton. the living willow structure is to provide shade, stability and fodder for bees, and the native rose is to detract vandals and also provide fodder.
