Event date/time: 
Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 8:30am to 12:30pm


Bumble bee on flower

Tom Sullivan of Pollinators Welcome will present strategies for improving bee forage. 

He will cover bee-friendly flowers, bloom phenology, and how to choose plants that meet site conditions and increase pollinator diversity and abundance. Along the way, he will identify threats to pollinator health and explain how we can help bees by creating pollinator havens on farms, in gardens and within conservation areas.  He will also cover native bee biology and nesting needs, and explore the basics of meadow making for beekeepers and other pollinator-positive stewards.

We will go outside if weather permits, and ample resources will be provided via email after the workshop.
