Celebrate International Pollinator Week! June 21-27, 2010!

Bees, butterflies, birds and bats are essential actors in our gardens, farms and wild areas. They are the pollinators that help co-produce fruit, vegetables, seeds and flowers. It is estimated that one out of every three bites should be attributed to a pollinator.

Honey bee and wild bee populations are declining globally. Gardeners like you are in a unique position can make a significant difference to these declines by providing pollinators with nesting and foraging habitat.

Join us to celebrate these amazing creatures and learn how to be a pollinator stewards in your garden.

Events:

  • Sunday June, 6 (10-12)-Pre-Pollinator Week gardening workshop at The Kavanah Garden in Maple. We will be planting a habitat garden and building bee houses to attract pollinators. For directions and to RSVP email sabrinamalach@gmail.com.
  • Mon, June 21-Sun, June 27 (12-5)-Urban Buzz-A Tale of Three Cities multi-media art exhibit at The Gladstone Hotel.
