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.

Support National Truth and Reconciliation Day
National Truth and Reconciliation Day

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is Friday, September 30, 2022.

Last year our team connected to talk about ways we could authentically recognize and contribute to Indigenous Peoples Day, Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Our extended pizzeria family includes a connection to the amazing local artist Rande Cook, Kwakwaka’wakw, a multimedia artist born in Alert Bay. Rande created a beautiful image for us and in his words, “it honours the spirits of the children who attended residential schools; indigenous children in the centre, in a place of memory, honour and remembering.”

We printed Rande’s image onto black tees, shared with the team and sold the shirts in the pizzerias and on-line.  $10 from the sale of each shirt was donated to the Indian Residential Schools Survivor Society (IRSSS). The Indian Residential School Survivor Society (IRSSS) is a provincial organization with a twenty-year history of providing services to Indian Residential School Survivors. Last year Prima Strada donated more than $400 from the sale of the tees to IRSSS.

We are honoured to again offer Rande’s design for sale with a donation made to IRSSS.…
