Planting for Honey Bees
Collectively, the choices we make in our urban gardens impact the health of honeybees and other pollinators. This session will begin with a look at the biology of Apis mellifera, the European honeybee, and the annual cycles of a colony as related to weather and forage availability. With that as a foundation, attendees will then discuss plants that can provide nutrition to the pollinators through the seasons.
The instructor, Bonnie Morse, is the co-owner of Bonnie Bee & Company, which offers local bees and honey, in addition to support for local beekeepers, through workshops, consulting and hive management. Her website is www.bonniebeecompany.com
