Wild Bee Florals

Thanu of Wild Bee Florals sees the world through many different lenses, one being the intersection of evolutionary biology and informal education. Her passion for growing flowers bloomed naturally alongside her curiosity for learning about ecosystems around us, especially insect biodiversity. Over the past few years, Thanu has grown flowers for market in North Vancouver and flowers for floral subscriptions in Vancouver. At the end of 2020, Thanu moved to the Comox Valley with her partner to pursue flower farming full time.
