Gardening 101: How Sweet It Is: Backyard Bee Keeping and Bee-Friendly Plants 

Bees are some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet and they make one of the sweetest and most beloved of foods. They are also responsible for the pollination of countless crops, especially fruit trees and berry bushes. With the relaxing of by-laws in many municipalities many homeowners are now allowed to keep bees in their own backyards. Join local bee expert Bob Fisher of West Coast Bee Supply as he introduces you to the world of the honeybee and gives you some advice on the basics of backyard bee keeping. Bob will bring one of his own thriving beehives to the nursery to introduce you to the honeybee up close and personal! Then Bob and Phoenix Perennials owner, Gary, will discuss the best bee-friendly plants for the garden. At the end of the workshop you can even head down the street to Bob's business and buy some bees and bee-keeping equipment to get started!
