Create a nectar and pollen “cafe” for passing pollinators! We’ll plant our pots with ornamental annuals and culinary herbs to provide a good source of nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies, and other little helpers. Whether you have a balcony, rooftop, patio, or front porch, you can still plant a fantastic pollinator-supporting garden! *While we will have some part-shade plants to choose from, most of the annuals and herbs will thrive best in a full sun exposure.

Smaller than honeybees, mason bees and leaf cutter bees are incredible pollinators… 20 times more than a honeybee!

We’ll also send you home with a new-found gratitude for native bees! *Both morning and afternoon classes, please take note of which you sign up for!
