Event description

Description

Honey bees are relied on for many NZ crops such as kiwifruit, avocado, apples, plums and apricots.

The humble bee contributes $5 billion a year to our national economy!

However, there are more pollinators contributing to our economy than honey bees.




A workshop conducted by Dr Brad Howlett, who is a pollination scientist at Plant and Food Research, Lincoln. He will introduce us to other bees and insects that contribute to crop and vegetable pollination.

This workshop is a joint initiative of Lincoln Envirotown Trust and Lincoln Community Care. The topic is sure to be of interest to folk of all ages, so children are welcome.



Registration is not required, please just come along.

Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens are located on James Street, behind the Lincoln Maternity Hospital. Please park on the road.

Gold coin donation appreciated (or donate time to the Selwyn Timebank).
