When we think of supporting native bees, we often think of planting flowering annuals and perennials. But trees and shrubs also flower, and they can produce hundreds of pollen laden flowers on just one plant!

Drop by our booth that will be set up in the market area to ask your bee and tree questions and pick up your free #BeesLoveTrees swag.  Then take a guided tour of the LEAF Learning Garden.  Tours will run every 30 minutes, starting on the hour and half-hour.
