Bees are the main pollinators of most of the food we eat, and The US Department of Agriculture estimates that there will not be enough bees to pollinate the blueberry, avocado, and apple crops this season. Have you heard that one of the main causes of our bee problems is the wide use of pesticides, particularly, neonicotinoids, which are used on lawns, landscaping, golf courses, and in pet care products? Did you know that organic gardening is a great way for you to help the bees? Come to this class to learn about creating a pollinator friendly habitat in your own yard that buzzes with bees and butterflies.
