Beekeeping Series: Planting for Pollinators

Bees and other pollinators love to feed on a multiplicity of flowers. Loss of natural habitat and pesticides are having a detrimental effect on honey bees, native bees, butterflies, and other pollinators throughout Westchester County and the surrounding areas. Beekeepers and gardeners can do much to increase the population and health of pollinators by transforming dull lawns into beautiful natural habitats. We will walk the land and visit gardens at Hilltop Hanover Farm to look for early blooming shrubs and trees. Lists of pollinator friendly plants and information on establishing natural habitat on your property will be shared. Invite your neighbors!
