What's the Buzz all About?!
The next Sustainable First Monday will be on March 1 from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. at the Commons on Brien Drive.
Join us that night to hear all about one of the most fascinating and useful insects--bees. From native pollinators like Mason bees and bumble bees,
to raising bees for honey and the spread of Colony Collapse Disorder, local beekeepers will share their experiences
and answer your questions. Learn what
you can do to help support this critical function in our global food chain.
Matinees That Matter are Back!
Sustainable Bainbridge will again be partnering with the historic Lynwood Theatre to show an engaging and important film each quarter this coming year.

The film will be shown at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, March 20 and 21 at Lynwood Theatre. Admission is $9 and helps support the work of Sustainable Bainbridge. Mark your calendar now so you won't miss this film!
