Pollinators have received a lot of attention in recent years, mostly because of the decline in honey bee populations due to colony collapse disorder. Native pollinators are important cousins of honey bees and are in need of help, too.

Come learn about the many types of pollinators present in our region and how to protect and encourage them in your landscape. The end of the class we will tour the UMass Permaculture Garden. This workshop will be partially outdoors, so please dress appropriately for potentially wet, cold, and muddy conditions. Led by extension educator, Sonia Schloemann.
