Join us for our online Gardening for Bees workshop on March 14 at 7 PM MST.

If you are a gardening enthusiast of any level and are interested in learning more about how to support pollinators thrive with the help of your very own garden, then this workshop is for you. This workshop will give you a brand new perspective on your garden. Our goal is to help you feel empowered to make even the smallest yard better for our pollinator friends.

We have all heard about declining bee populations in recent years and how that greatly affects food production. Did you know that you can help bees right from your backyard? By creating the right environment you are providing safe havens for insects that are being impacted by climate change, habitat loss, and pesticides.

Join us for our Gardening for Bees workshop. You will learn about the biology, life cycle, habitat, and needs of bees native to North America as well as honey bees and other pollinators. You will learn specific gardening strategies that keep pollinators top of mind. We will also be providing you with a list of plants that thrive in Alberta, a list of our top 10 strategies, and resources if you are interested in learning more about gardening for bees.

Find out what’s missing in your garden! Make it a space where pollinators can survive and thrive!

We’re excited to be partnering with Gisele Hardock from Hive and Harvest for this event!

Gisele Hardock is a Master Beekeeper, Educator, and Market Gardener who lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta.  She has been keeping bees since 2011, a hobby that began innocently enough but has flourished into a full on insect obsession. An educator at heart, her big project is introducing children of all ages about the fascinating world of bees through education sessions through Hive and Harvest.  She has taught preschool through high school students about bees in school classrooms, 4H, summer camps, daycares, homeschool groups, and online.

Throughout the winter, Gisele also works at Growing Roots Forest Play, helping preschool aged kids connect with the natural world.  In the spring and summer she can be found growing vegetables in her permaculture greenhouses for Summit Hill Farm CSA and adventuring in the forest with her family.
