Dear Bee-friendly friends,

We want to invite you and your bee-friendly friends and neighbors to an important and helpful information meeting devoted to making Boulder and beyond Bee Safe!

The Melody-Catalpa Neighborhood in north Boulder is the first Bee Safe Neighborhood in Colorado, and we are working as a team to make Boulder and beyond healthy for pollinators. We have received numerous requests for information from you and others, and we want to help. Since one of our goals is to educate about pollinators, especially bees, and promote Bee Safe Neighborhoods, we invite you to join us in this effort. We also want to explain a few organizing tricks that helped us gather more than 200 pledges from our neighbors in a few weeks, to become bee safe–and not to use systemic pesticides. Our neighborhood has become a healthier and stronger community as a result of this project, and we believe yours will, too. Please plan to join us, as we hope that our experiences and activities will help you build community and make your neighborhood bee safe.

The meeting will include information about bees and other pollinators, health risks of the systemic pesticides, and explanation plus materials to help you build a Bee Safe community. A more detailed program for the meeting will be sent to you in about ten days, but please forward this message to your friends and family in Boulder and beyond. Invite them to join this project and save the date. Together, we can help to save the bees and other pollinators, and to make our environment, our homes, our families and friends healthier and happier through pesticide free Bee Safe Neighborhoods.

7-9 P.M.

Thanks so much for your interest in pollinators and this project. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the meeting. If you have questions, please reply to this email; however, as most of our team must be out of town for a few days, we will respond after June 23. Again, thank you for your interest in good health and a healthy environment. NO BEES + NO FOOD.
