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…

Support the Cobblestone Pub – Eat Well Do Good

Bring your family, friends and neighbours – it takes a community!  Whether you’re heading up or down the island to take part in Canada Day activities, stop in for a pizza (dine in or take out!)!  PPS Cobble Hill is located RIGHT off the hwy.  Every little bit counts.  The donations from this event will help support the Cobblestone Staff while the pub remains closed undergoing construction.

On June 1st 2018, the Cobblestone Pub suffered major fire damage resulting in the community hub closing it’s doors for the summer. The pub has been operating since 1983 and we know you’ll agree – it’s an institution in the Cowichan Valley.

The Cobblestone Carne: Tomato, fresh mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, house ham, garlic, oregano – $21

No meat, no problem. We thought you might ask so we’ve prepared an excellent veggie option for $21.  Capricciosa Verde Supremo: basil pesto, peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, olives, fresh mozzarella.
