Introduce yourself to Long Island’s pollinators including bumble bees, leafcutter bees, mason bees, squash bees, and even flies and moths! There are close to 450 different bee species in New York State – these are the superheroes of our gardens and farms. Wild bees are 2-3 times more effective at pollinating than honeybees. Honeybees supplement the work of wild bees, not the other way around. Join Veteran Beekeeper Laura Klahre (Blossom Meadow Farm) as she discusses why and specifically which gentle pollinators will be most advantageous for higher yields and larger, more well-rounded produce. Innovations at her farm and specific actions you can take to put more food on your table and support bee populations (e.g., flowers to plant, types of habitat to provide, and advanced bee ranching efforts) will be discussed. This class offering is in partnership with the Long Island Regional Seed Consortium and the Center for Ethical Biodiversity (Saturday, April 6th)
