Workshop: Planting for Honey Bees

Sunday | September 24, 2017 | 2:00 pm — 4:00 pm

Common Ground Grow Biointensive Garden | 687 Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306

Collectively, the choices we make in our urban gardens impact the health of honeybees and other pollinators. We’ll begin by looking at the biology of Apis mellifera, the European Honeybee, and the annual cycles of a colony as related to weather and forage availability. With that as a background, we’ll discuss plants that can provide nutrition through a variety of seasons. Bonnie Morse, co-owner of Bonnie Bee & Company which offers local bees and honey in addition to support for local beekeepers through workshops, consulting and hive management. www.bonniebeecompany.com
