Planting for Pollinators
Event Cancelled.

The majority of human food depends on insect pollinators for its existence. Numerous species of bees, flies and other flying insects spread pollen from flower to flower and increase fruit yields of many crops. In the past decade, colony collapse disorder among honeybee populations has brought attention to the fragility of the insect world - and indeed the greater ecosystem - upon which we depend for our food.

This workshop will provide an overview of common garden pollinators and a variety of plants that attract and sustain them. It will include an overview of planting by guild, with a focus on insectary plants that attract beneficial insects to the garden and which thrive in our climate.

This workshop will take place in the Leland Street Community Garden, a unique communal garden in Boston's Forest Hills neighborhood that is planted with diverse perennials, vegetables, and herbs and is home to several hives of honeybees.  

Cost: $24 for NOFA Members; $31 for Non-Members
