Where you can find us: Festivals, Farm, and Storefront
Due to the pandemic, many things have changed. All the events, festivals and markets were cancelled this year. However, you can still find our concrete Garden Art at the Kootenay Gallery of Art (Castlegar) until year's end, and our fibre arts are for sale in Nelson at Touchstones. And of course, you are welcome to contact us here at Bee Glade.
