Ellis Bird Farm is hosting a Pollinators Workshop on Sunday, June 11 from 10 AM until 12 PM. The cost is $20 (plus GST).
Pollinators are vital to the production of food and to the health and stability of our ecosystems worldwide. Join Ellis Bird Farm's head gardener, Cynthia Pohl, to learn about our local pollinators, and how to design your gardens to be pollinator-friendly. The workshop will include three components: an introduction to pollinators and their role in our ecosystem, a hands-on workshop where you will construct your own indigenous bee habitat structure and a guided tour around Ellis Bird Farm where you can observe pollinators in action.
