Last month, we held our first-ever virtual GeNA event: a free webinar on urban beekeeping and bee-friendly gardens featuring the wisdom of Glenelm’s very own bee and honey expert, John Russell. With John’s permission, we recorded the webinar and have published it on YouTube for all to enjoy.
Join John as he guides you through the wonderful world of bees and how you can play a role in pollination and the protection of the environment. As mentioned in the webinar, here are some great resources on plant choices:
- Plants that attract pollinators (this list includes annuals, perennials, herbs, garden plants, shrubs and trees)
- More plants that attract pollinators (this list includes common & scientific names of popular garden plants and Northwest native plants that will do well in our region)
- Pollinator-friendly cut flower plants (a detailed list of flowers that bees and other pollinators will love – includes size, colour and bloom times)
- Chart of plants producing fruit & nut (a big list of plants and which insects/animals pollinate them)
A big thanks to John from all the webinar participants and GeNA!
