5/20 Bee a Friend ~ Stella Kemper

30.00

Environmental art that adds charm to your garden and gives a home to wild bees? It's not too good to be true! Making a home for native Mason and Leafcutter bees supports our pollinator populations and adds charm and diversity to your landscape. Solitary bees don't live in hives, aren't territorial, and are non-aggressive—providing all the benefits of honeybees in your garden without the risks. Plus a beehome is a great way to learn about wild insects for the whole family!

 

On this afternoon, we will be making bee houses for wild species from recycled paper tubes, recycled tin cans, chicken wire, and hand-detailed wood scraps using simple wood working and assembly methods. No previous experience necessary, but you will be expected to use basic hand and power tools, including saws, drills, and a band-saw. The core construction of this bee house allows it to be reused year after year, with only a change of bedding that's easy to re-make at home! 

 

 

This class will include all the materials and instruction to make a single bee home and decorate it to suit your home and personal style.
