Length:

Date:
Available by request with minimum 10 participants
Cost:
Group Rate (min 10 participants) $5.

What do birds and bees have in common? They can both pollinate! During this workshop Dr Bee will be talking about various forms of pollination. Long story short, for a plant to produce seeds, pollination must take place. Dr Bee will show how pollen can be transferred from one flower and placed on the pistil of another flower. Although the focus of this workshop will be on insect pollination, there are two other ways in nature that pollination can also take place: with the aid of wind and self-pollination. This workshop is suitable for youth looking to extend their focused studies as well as gardeners, who wish to maximize the beauty of their gardens.
