Bee-Friendly Garden - How to Create a Bee Sanctuary in Your Backyard

 

Would you like to create a beautiful garden and also do your part to save the bees, all in one? A huge part of keeping honey bees healthy is to ensure they have the plants they need to survive available to them year round. Join Emily for this one-day workshop on bee-friendly gardening by starting the day at Cabrillo for a discussion and presentation on native plants, drought tolerant plants, perennial and annual flowering plants and basic bee-friendly landscape design. We’ll then break for lunch and make our way to Native Revival Nursery, just a few minutes from campus, where we will walk the grounds to see, smell and touch some recommended plants for your very own Bee Friendly Garden. This class helps us all save the bees and make our gardens more beautiful at the same time!

Students go home with a small bee-friendly garden starter kit from Native Revival Nursery, a plant list that breaks down the best bee plants by size, annual blooming schedule, place of origin and water needs.

Save the Bees! How to Support Bees in our Landscapes

"Save the Bees! How to Support Bees in our Landscapes" 
by Emily Bondor, beekeeper and educator

The class will focus on the co-evolution of flowering plants and bees, and the importance of pollinators to our landscape and our food system. Honey bees are unique among bee species, as they’re a “superorganism” with a social caste. Emily will do a brief lesson on honey bee biology, caste structure and roles within the hive, but the main focus of the class will be about how to support bees in our landscape. By focusing on forage, we will support not only honeybees but native bees, too.

Cost: $45 per person
