All About Pollinators, Bees and Wasps
This workshop explores the wonderful world of pollinators, bees and wasps. Typically, we think of honeybees as doing all the hard work, but there is a vast and varied source of pollinators; including the wind! We will take a trip down the rabbit hole and reveal the multitude of pollinators, get focused on bees and native bees, and fall in love with wasps. We will weave in our favourite conversation about creating habitat and attracting pollinators to your food and flower gardens! All levels of experience are welcome!
