This club is being revived from a pervious organized group. Bee Club has been and will continue to be curated in a way that the information that is being portrayed will be accessible to all. It will be an engaging club that will be split up in two ways. First, through lectures covering honey bee anatomy, impacts on honeybees, honeybee & hive maintenance, etc . Our goal is to make sure people are engaged and happy to be taking time out of their day to learn about bees.
Secondly, we also hope make fun crafts from the collected by-products of Quest's hive.

The masculinities circle is a structured space for people to talk about– and witness others talk about– the impasses they live with. Through a sequence of facilitated sharing, we situate ourselves, check in, check in with our relationships to those present, and state our needs. The final step of the circle is to make space for those who are the most in need.
A recurring theme last year is that masc people and men don't find themselves with access to homosocial, touchy-feely spaces to talk about trauma, isolation, loss, and uncertainty.
