Learn About Orchard Mason Bees

Saturday, February 8, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

The University of Washington Botanic Gardens, Center for Urban Horticulture, is offering this FREE class for adults.

Are you interested in learning how to improve the pollination of plants and trees in your yard? Or perhaps you are curious how you could support the environment by hosting non-stinging native bees without any fruit trees in your garden? Come join us as Missy Anderson (alias Queen Bee), from King County Master Gardeners, offers an engaging presentation on Orchard Mason Bees. Learn about the wonderful nature of mason bees, the value they bring to our world, and how easy it is to host them in a nesting box in your back yard. Becoming a successful bee farmer is easy and fun.

Cost: FREE! (Suggested $5 donation at door).  RSVP online, or call 206-685-8033.
