Pollinators in our Gardens
April 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
A workshop conducted by Dr Brad Howlett
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.
Dr Brad Howlett, 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.
The topic is sure to be of interest to folk of all ages, so children are welcome.
Please park on the street.
