North Carolina is home to more than 500 species of native bees. Often overlooked, these beneficial insects are essential to our gardens and the environment. This workshop will help participants recognize some of our many native bees, understand their unique relationships with plants, and support them with attractive, bee-friendly gardens. After an overview of garden design and installation, participants will get hands-on experience planting a pollinator garden at the JC Raulston Arboretum. This workshop is appropriate for novice gardeners, but there will be something new for everyone—including plants to take home.
Price: $10 arboretum members, $15 nonmembers
