Be a Bee

Saturday, June 11, 10.00 a.m.

Be a Bee

Learn how to create a “bee friendly” backyard from Danny Cannon, of Bee Trail Farms, in Lexington, and see our working hive in our Fresh Produce Market. Scientists say that every third bite of food we take is pollenated by a bee. Currently the bee population around the world is in decline, so the more environment we can create for them, the more we help ourselves.

There is a $10 charge per person for this workshop, but you will be given a $10 certificate to be spent at Wingard’s on June 11th.

Generally, any family with a gardener, particularly a parent or grandparent, in the family has heard of has grown heirloom tomatoes, whose seeds were dried and replanted year after year. Today, many gardeners are attracted to heirloom tomato plants for the diversity of color, flavor, and plant type. If you’ve never considered an heirloom tomato plant, you might want to join us for this informative workshop, led by Derrick Gunter, who grows heirloom tomatoes for Wingard’s.
