Passions come at different times of your life. One of our most faithful and appreciated customers, Justina Block has developed a passion that is spreading across the country and our city. Her passion is for the Mason Bee, also known as the Blue Orchard Bee. These humble bees have an incredible power. When you welcome them into your yard with a tiny specially crafted house they go to work pollinating your garden from one end to the other making a significant difference in your garden. Other wonderful attributes of Mason Bees is that they are very tame, you can order them online and they are practically care free. I have even seen Justina pet one on a video.
On Thursday April19th, Justina Block will be here to introduce you to these wonderful creatures and offer an in depth presentation of how to get started. Jay Logan, owner of Green Space Sustainable Design will accompany her and demonstrate how to create a beautiful garden for your pollinators.
Your $20 ticket includes a cocktail/drink and a light savory snack in our new Tearoom on Madison Road.
Improve your garden and perhaps make a new friend of mason bees. Maybe you will uncover a new passion too.
