Let’s celebrate the Bees!

Let’s celebrate the bees! This past weekend, we caught a bit of sun on the patio and surveyed our front lawn. We’ve got too many dandelions for Geoffrey’s sensibility but I assured him a few dandelions are more than okay. Actually, they are great for bees! 

This May, help us celebrate the bees. Prima Strada will donate a $1 from the purchase of each Feature Pizza and Feature Dessert to the Cowichan Beekeepers Club.

The Features:

Dolci – Lemon Almond Polenta Cake w/scoop of house made Fior di latte gelato, drizzled with Cowichan honey, garnished with wildflowers for $12

Pizza – Olive oil, sausage, ricotta, grapes, arugula, honey for $23

Available at all 3 pizzerias!

A few years back, we partnered with the Cowichan Beekeepers Club; we visited hives and learned all about bees. It was an amazing experience and we’re very happy to once again be helping the club and the bees. The Cowichan Beekeepers Club is raising funds to help improve their mobile education training trailer. Last season, a new 7x 14’ enclosed cargo trailer was donated to the club.  Here’s how they will use the funds:

Education – Each year the Club is approached by teachers asking…

Explore Cowichan
Road Trip To Cowichan

We love road trips, be it by car or bike, and we love to explore Cowichan! Our list of really good things to see, do and eat in Cowichan is a long one.   From favourite hiking spots (with instagrammable moments) to sipping a glass of wine at one of the many vineyards, there’s something for everyone.

Because it’s how we feel about road trip stops, it’s important to have a little something for everyone.

At Prima Strada in Cobble Hill, whether you need to stretch your legs, bribe with gelato, grab a pizza to-go or do your part and sample some of Cowichan’s finest local craft beer/wine/cider on a sunny patio, we’ve got you covered.

Pizza…it’s universally accepted by everyone in your car, guaranteed. Salad…for the people that are not bold enough to admit they love pizza. Local craft beer, cider and wine…no description needed. Gelato…for kids of all ages. Parking…we have lots! “I have to go PEE”… there’s someone in every car. You know who you are.

On your adventure up or down the island this summer, we hope you’ll include Prima Strada Cobble Hill on your list.
