Join us at Ecology Park on Sunday June 5 to make a stem-bundle bee house for your backyard. Peterborough GreenUP’s Community Bee Keeping Program will help us to learn more about bees, their different nesting habitats, and how the plants we grow in our gardens can attract bees and other local pollinators. Plants that are native to Ontario require less tending and watering and are more likely to attract local pollinators. It also helps to plan your garden so that there is always something in bloom – which is nice for you too! The Ecology Park Garden Market will be open, so check out their native and edible plants, shrubs and trees while you’re there.  They also sell bulk leaf compost, cedar mulch, straw bales, and wood chips.

Kids: If you made a pollinator for our art display at Black Honey, THANK YOU! The pollinator mobiles will be in flight from May 1st until at least the 23rd, so be sure to check them out (217 Hunter St West). Your inspiring creations will be available for pick up at this June 5 event.
