Preceding the Organic Growers School Annual Conference, Dr Nancy Adamson and Debbie Roos will teach an all-day Pollinator Conservation Planning Course on March 7 at UNC Asheville.
Let pollinators and other beneficial insects do the work! Native bees and other beneficial insects such as predators and parasitoids of crop pests can provide free pollination and pest management services. Find out how to protect and manage habitat for these vital insects on the farm and in home and community gardens.
This full day training will provide you with the latest science-based approaches and local resources for attracting and conserving beneficial insects. Register online.
Course sponsors include UNC Asheville Student Environmental Center and Sustainability Office, Lenoir-Rhyne University Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville, Asheville Bee Charmer, and Snow Creek Landscaping.
