Nestled between the Terra Nova Nature School, the Sharing Farm, and the Terra Nova Adventure Playground, our second pollinator project (2018) in Richmond is the Terra Nova Public Art Pollinator Meadow. This continued collaboration with the City of Richmond has been designed to complement the environmental missions of our Terra Nova neighbours. This meadow has also been developed and maintained with support from the Master Gardeners — Vancouver and the Richmond Green Ambassadors.
Our apiary sculptures, designed for Border Free Bees by our lead industrial designer Evan Hutchinson, create an outdoor classroom in the heart of the meadow. The meadow also features an environmental sculpture by artist Jaymie Johnson. Bumble Baskets, the Richmond edition, builds on the success of Johnson’s 2017 version of the community-engaged work for our Kelowna pasture.
Working with the students at the Terra Nova Nature School to create habitat for native bees and to weave the environmental sculpture Bumble Baskets. Bee drawings by the students in response to the Pollinator Meadow.
