Learn more about solitary native bees, and the advantages of attracting these to your garden, as well as learning how to make your very own insect hotel in which these good garden friends can set up house!

The workshop will include a brief introduction to native bees, how to spot a native bee, the nesting types, buzz pollination, what materials are great to get you started with your own bee hotel, and no matter what type of green thumb you are how to set up a bee friendly garden.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
