with Gentle Bees

With modern forms of farming and gardening affecting our winged pollinators, it has become increasingly more important for the urban gardener to entice mason bees into our yards and gardens. Join us as mason bee expert and The Plant Farm friend Dave Hunter shares the importance of mason bees for a healthy and fruitful landscape, garden, and environment. In this seminar, you will find how easy and fun it is to raise your own mason bees and how these buzzing little friends will help your garden and fruit trees grow. FREE.
