Growing Food 101: How To Include Bees In Your Garden

The Richmond Food Security Society is offering gardeners a look into Beescaping, the sustainable art and science of integrating bees into the living landscape.

Bee conservation is widely recognized now as crucial to a sustainable future (hello, we need bees to pollinate!). This class is an introduction to beescaping, that looks at aspects of forage and nesting needed for both native bees and honeybees with an emphasis on bee health.

Creating a variety of nesting material for native bees, the basics of keeping honeybees in an urban setting, bee wrangling and other hands-on activities will be offered. This class is suitable for horticulturalists, landscape designers, farmers and home gardeners alike.
