Now that our honey bees are busy gathering nectar, it would be wise for beekeepers to examine what local forage is available to pollinators throughout the season and what additional quality nutrition they can provide in what they plant around their homes and apiaries. On Sunday June 4th, you will have the chance to tour some members’ gardens and see what they have provided. There will even be horticulture experts available to describe and identify specimens and answer questions.
Two different pollinator garden tours have been scheduled with two stops on each tour. The first stop on each tour will begin at 9:30 and end at 11 so that people can drive to the second stop that goes from 11:30 to 1pm. Please arrive on time so that you can participate in the tour. Additionally, you will have the chance to see apiaries at each site.
If you have extra plant divides to share or exchange, bring them.
Feel free to bring a picnic lunch and socialize after the second tour stop.
