Thinking Like a Bee: Excelling at Pollinator Gardening
Important Venue Notes
Supporting pollinators is all the rage, but how do you do it? This workshop will help you get started. You’ll learn about pollinator forage and nesting needs, which plants are pollinator-friendly, using bee-safe strategies to manage pests, raising mason bees, and how to identify bees in your yard. We'll conclude with a 45-minute walk around the neighborhood, looking for examples of pollinator-attractive plants, good design and pollinators as we walk.
With Andony Melathopoulos (Oregon State University), Sharon Selvaggio (Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides) and John Edwards (Brushy Mountain Bee Farm).
