Turn Your Garden into a Pollinator Paradise!
The incredible Kate Frey speaks at our AMAZING SPRING PARTY
Saturday, April 9 at 11 am!
Bring a plethora of pollinators to your own garden!
As pollinators the world over are struggling, it's more important than ever to plant pollinator and bee-friendly gardens. They not only ensure that your fruits and flowers get pollinated, but they help restore habitat to species hard hit by urban and agricultural development. The good news is that the same flowers that offer pollen and nectar resources to bees, birds, butterflies and insects make US happy, too! Kate will share what a pollinator garden consists of and how to create one in your own yard! We think this is an extremely important talk - you must come!
Kate is an award-winning designer, who won gold twice at the Chelsea Flower Show for her mind-bogglingly beautiful and sustainable wildflower gardens. And she is our HERO for the incredible work she has done in helping bees and pollinators of all types through her amazing gardens.
Last year, Kate invited all of us at Annie's to visit the thrilling "Melissa Garden" she created in Healdsburg, CA for the owners of a local winery. Created as a bee sanctuary where hives are treated as living beings, the bees are raised in innovative hives and provided with an exuberant pesticide-free gardens brimming with year-round food and nectar sources. I don't think anyone else has created a garden quite like this anywhere in the world. I highly encourage you to visit it yourself and be inspired as much as we were!
