Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation as Heather Holm, researcher and award-winning author, shares her valuable insights on supporting bees and other beneficial insects.
Learn about the importance of insect pollination and the bees responsible for pollinating the fruits and vegetables we grow in both home and commercial landscapes.
Heather will discuss the genera of bees responsible for the majority of the pollination and the additional forage (flowering plants) you need to provide to ensure that the ‘flower buffet’ is always open, even when the fruit or vegetable plants are not in flower.
You’ll also learn about the beneficial insects that the native flowering plants will attract and how these insects can help reduce insect pest populations in your fruit or vegetable garden.
