Upcoming Talks and Workshops
May 2, 2020. California Native Bees in Herbal Gardens at Gathering Thyme in San Rafael
10am - 12pm. This is now an online class and a link will be provided after you register.
Did you know that California is home to roughly 1,600 species of native bees?! While most people can recognize a honey bee and perhaps a bumble bee, few are aware that so many other types are pollinating our native, ornamental, and agricultural plants. Come learn about the importance of these pollinators, their biology and ecology, including info on their lifecycle and nesting needs. You will learn about the most common native bees visiting medicinal herb gardens during each season, as well as their very favorite plants. Jaime will provide info on how to start your own bee garden to encourage these valuable pollinators to visit your own home habitat. After the lecture, students will participate in making their own bee condo’s to take home! COST: $25. I am donating my portion of the proceeds to Gathering Thyme's non-profit which offers herbal medicine and education to low income community members.
