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). Free but pre-registration is required.

"The Muse fell from the sky one night and landed in the spaces between our heart beats. She instantly took a liking to the rhythm in our chests, and her sweet melody joined the pulse. One of us picked up father bass, and thumped it’s belly in response. The other picked up father mandolin, and plucked its ribs. Mother guitar and sister flute could not resist being a part of such sweet merriment and soon joined in. So we opened our hearts and let sweet harmony roll off of our tongues. In unison our voices shot out into the deep of night and a star fell from the heavens; the magic spark! Mamuse is born" We are also doing back flips because we get to share this very special evening and this stage with one of our favorite people on planet Earth, Claudia Cuentas!! Claudia is a song catcher originally from Peru now gracing Portland with her brilliant spirit and powerful voice. Her songs are born from an ancient now, calling us both forward and backward in time until we find ourselves dancing happily in the present. She has been likened to Mercedez Sosa, for the deep resilient, uplifting, spirit she brings into her voice and the world. Be prepared to be moved!
