Would you like to create a beautiful garden and also do your part to save the bees, all in one? A huge part of keeping honey bees healthy is ensuring that they have the plants they need to survive available to them year round. Join Emily for this one-day workshop on bee-friendly gardening by starting the day at Cabrillo for a discussion and presentation on native plants, drought tolerant plants, perennial and annual flowering plants and basic bee-friendly landscape design. We’ll then break for lunch and make our way to Far West Nursery, where we will walk the grounds to see, smell and touch some plants recommended for your very own Bee Friendly Garden. This class helps us all save the bees and make our gardens more beautiful at the same time!
Students go home with a small bee-friendly garden starter kit from Far West Nursery, and a plant list that breaks down the best bee plants by size, annual blooming schedule, place of origin and water needs.
