Designing Bee Friendly Gardens

  • Reid Campus Center, Room G02 280 Boyer Avenue Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

Planting bee-friendly gardens helps support pollinators of all varieties, ensures your vegetables are pollinated, and can help perpetuate plants that depend on pollination- over 90% of the world’s plants. 

Though many of us think of honeybees when we think of pollinators, there are 4000 species of native bees in the United States. Butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, beetles and many beneficial insects also act as pollinators, and bee-friendly gardens support them as well. Bee-friendly gardens are, by definition, flower-filled. The same flowers that offer pollen and nectar rewards to bees make us happy, and create an uplifting and inspirational environment that will forever transform your relationship with your yard. 

This talk will detail what factors create a garden where bees thrive, will discuss the many plants they visit, and show a variety of examples of bee- friendly gardens
