Bees and Pollination
Tuesday, June 12, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
Bees and Pollination
Bee pollinators are essential to our environment. The service they provide is essential for the production of more than two-thirds of the world's crop species. This includes not only products of our backyard gardens, like apples and squash, but also things like alfalfa seed-creating forage sources for America's meat and dairy industries. Bee pollinators include honey bees and the many beautiful species of native bees that often go unnoticed. Come learn about the fascinating biology of the different bees, and what you can do to help them stay healthy.

When & Where
The Minnesota Project
The Minnesota Project champions the sustainable production and equitable distribution of energy and food in communities across Minnesota.
Our programs are focused on the development, conservation and efficient use of renewable energy; farm practice and policy that promote profitable farms that protect and replenish the environment; and the production and consumption of local, sustainably grown foods.
Through collaborative leadership we demonstrate practical solutions as a basis for future policy. For over twenty-nine years we have fostered local empowerment, bridged diverse interests, encouraged shared values, and initiated working dialogues that create positive action and policy.
