We’ll learn about the different families of pollinating bees ranging from the tiny beautiful sweat bees to the big and endearing bumble bees.We’ll learn about what they need for nesting and foraging habitats and how to create these spaces in our landscapes.A brief tour of the UMass Permaculture Garden will be included.
