Online: Beauty and the Bees
March 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST
There was a time was when we wanted to design gardens that were beautiful. Planting trees, shrubs and perennials together to create a space that was aesthetically pleasing was the goal. Now we know better. Gardening just for our own pleasure is not only selfish, it’s dangerous.
Colony Collapse Disorder and the plight of pollinators have made us aware that we do not garden alone. We need to be designing landscapes and gardens with a mindful eye to the environment around us. Join garden designer and beekeeper Deborah Trickett, owner of The Captured Garden, as she shows you how with a few tweaks we can create spaces that are not only beautiful but beneficial to bees and other pollinators.
