co-create wodonga Mural of bee's and lavander

Co-Create Jan 2023 Live Mural
Collaboration with Rita Worboys 

The Mural illustrates bees pollinating lavandula stoechas in an attempt to highlight and celebrate the importance of our beautiful pollinators. They may be tiny, but they have a huge impact on our environment, & it's essential we provide pollen sources for them coming into the cooler months.

Lavender is a favourite amongst bee's- particularly our local Blue Banded bee (amegilla) as it provides ample pollen & has a long bloom period.

Bee's also can't see Red, so our use of a minimal pallet is a deliberate attempt to highlight colours which are most attractive to bee's (white, blue, purple) & serves as an educational component.
