Bee-Friendly Gardens + Urban Beekeeping: A Virtual GeNA Event!

Next Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30pm

Glenelm’s resident bee and honey expert, John Russell, will present a free online workshop on bee gardens, urban beekeeping and attracting other pollinators. Learn how to create a bee-friendly garden, including plant recommendations. After the presentation there will be lots of time for questions! You may have met John at Sweets & Seeds last year – we are very grateful for his ongoing support of GeNA. ¬†

We are working out the details of which platform the event will take place on, and will send an email & post to Facebook/website when that has been finalized! Stay tuned!
