Birchwood Garden Club's November Meeting

Talks/Lectures, Gardening

Dave Hunter is the owner of Crown Bees, whose vision is simple: to ensure that we have food on our plates in 10 years. Heís accomplishing this goal by teaching people how to raise Mason Bees, and showing that you, the backyard gardener has a vital role to play in protecting our pollination services. Gardeners and farmers grow more food when raising the right bee on the right crop. Itís that simple. Over the past thirty years, research and field trials have proven the relationship between bee diversity and crop yield. Crown Bees raises, sells, and advocates for hole-nesting bees that pollinate significantly better than the honey bee. BGC membership is open to anyone in Whatcom or Skagit County.
