An introduction to native bees and how to attract these pollinators to your garden.
Join Jenny Deans for this family-friendly workshop to learn more about the special role of our native bees. Discover:
- what native bees look like, and where they live
- the importance of native bees in our environment
- how to make a bee hotel
- how to create a bee garden to attract native bees

All participants will take home a small pack to make a bee hotel at home, and receive a ‘bee restaurant’ pack of native plants to plant in their own garden.
