What's the buzz? Bee-friendly gardens in focus
Bees are probably are the best-known of the bunch, but they are other pollinators at work and just as “busy-as-a-bee” in giving farms, gardens and forests of the islands, and elsewhere, of naturally, their magic touch.
Find out how to make your farm or garden habitat-friendly for pollinators and how to attract them to where you’d like them to go as part of a free two-hour workshop, entitled “Bees and Beneficial Insects,” Saturday, May 10, at San Juan Island's Mitchell Bay Farm and Nursery, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The workshop, sponsored by San Juan Islands Conservation District, will include talks by longtime beekeeper Colleen Howe of Mitchell Bay Farm and by San Juan Nature Institute’s Fiona Norris, a tour of Mitchell Bay Farm’s gardens and a free sunflower seed giveaway.
