July 15th free workshop at the Espanola Farmers Market

Monday, July 15, 2013. 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Espanola Farmers Market. A free workshop: Creating Bounty for Honeybees and Native Pollinators: In this introduction to farming and gardening with native pollinators and honeybees, Loretta McGrath, a top-bar beekeeper and director of the Pollinator Partners Program and Tawnya Laveta, programs director at Farm to Table, will guide participants through the basics of pollination, the importance of pollinators for food-growing gardens and farms, and how to design and plant pollinator habitat, including building native pollinator nesting boxes from scrap materials. If you are interested in attracting a wide range of pollinators, from honey bees and native bees, to butterflies and hummingbirds, come join us to learn what you can do to support these beneficial insects while creating a beautiful, chemical-free and bountiful garden or farm.
