Limited Capacity seats available

Many of the plants you grow have at least one pollinator partner who helps shape the evolution of their flowers and distribution. From bees, to butterflies, to birds, to bats, pollinating animals are responsible for many of the fruits and vegetables we rely on. This workshop will teach you the basics of pollination ecology as well as how to maximize food production by encouraging both native and exotic pollinators. Yes, honey bees will be discussed, but this workshop will also cover the exciting world of tomato buzz pollination, the rotten world of fly pollination, and the beautiful life of the squash bee. By the end of the workshop you will be able to “read” flowers and come to know the true desires of the organisms you cultivate.

This workshop will be streamed live on www.facebook.com/stonebarns/
