It’s always a good time to start your pollinator garden! Whether you want to attract butterflies, birds or other pollinators to your yard, we can help you get started. Join our EXTENSION MASTER GARDENER℠ Volunteers of Guilford County for our Bee Friendly to Pollinators Day.
At this FREE event, learn about all the different kinds of pollinators and the vital role they play in our food production. Want to know which are the best flowers and plants to attract pollinators? Talk with the pollinator experts and learn more about the best ways you can help protect and attract pollinators. There will be butterfly, bee, and bug displays; plus take a look inside a real beehive! Talk with the Guilford County Beekeepers and learn the ins and outs of managing a hive. There will be activities for children to help them learn more about pollinators and their role in our world. Take a tour of our demonstration pollinator gardens. The Greensboro Eco-Bus will also be on hand with live animal displays.
