How You Can Help Honeybees and Other Pollinators
in Your Home Garden or Landscape
Saturday, March 24, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
The work of pollinators underpin our very existence on the planet, contributing to the proliferation of fruit-bearing flowering plants on which mammals, like us humans, rely. Honeybees are responsible for pollinating one-third of the food we eat. Their lives are in peril. Learn how you can become an ally to the bees and other pollinators in your home garden, landscape, or planter. Join landscape designer, contractor and beekeeper Melissa Elliott to learn more about organic land care practices for both large and small scales, planting design ideas and methods, specific native and ornamental plants the bees adore, as well as how to help if you don’t have space but love bees! This is your chance to ask an expert. Your garden and bee questions are welcome.
Tuition: $20-$30 (sliding scale)
