Where we sell: spring, summer, fall, & winter Bee Glade Farm & Nursery will be at these markets & festivals in the Kootenays....
For 2018 Bee Glade Nursery is changing things somewhat: we won't have structured open hours in May, and we might have a weekend 'open' garden, but we will definitely always welcome anyone who contacts us and wants to come out either to purchase, or have a wander around the gardens. If you are driving by and we are here, as we usually are, drop by and see us! No problem. :)
