PORTLAND – Urban Bee Habitat: Start a bee-friendly garden project in your neighborhood!
With spring around the corner, the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN) will host a workshop on March 19th on how to start a bee-friendly garden project in your neighborhood.
Did you know that planting bee-friendly flowers is the most important thing you can do to help save both native bees and honey bees? Even if you don’t know a daisy from a daffodil, its easy to grow some pollen-bearing plants that the bees will love. It’s even more fun if you join with your neighbors to learn about bees and take action together. That’s what residents of the Sabin Community Association did, and now they want to share some practical tips that will help you start a bee-friendly garden project in your community.
Join the following experts for a panel discussion and Q&A:
- Mace Vaughan, Pollinator Program Director at Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation and co-founder of the Sabin Bee-Friendly Garden Project
- Tim Wessels, Master Beekeeping Instructor at Oregon State University, President of the Portland Urban Beekeepers, and founder of Bridgetown Bees
- Diane Benson, Coordinator for the Sabin Bee-Friendly Garden Project
- Glen Andresen, Gardening and beekeeping educator and host of The Dirtbag, a KBOO radio show about organic gardening
The Sabin Bee-Friendly Garden Tour is a free, self-guided tour with 41 sites that you can visit whenever you like – spring, summer or fall. A map and a guide to the gardens are available on the Sabin website (sabinpdx.org). Sabin hopes to inspire other neighborhoods to create similar projects for protecting pollinators and building community.
