Runamuk has been invited to participate in Maine School Garden Day to talk about bees! It’s been a while since I was able to get out in the community to talk bees, so I’m pretty stoked to have been invited.
On Saturday, April 28th teachers from across Maine will gather at the Maine Academy of Natural Science in Hinckley to learn more about gardening, and Runamuk will be there to talk about pollinators, beekeeping, and bee-friendly gardening.
Maine School Garden Day is a day-long conference organized by the Maine School Garden Network. This year’s topics include a rice cultivation, integrated pest management, tower gardening, garden yoga, and my presentation─entitled: “What’s the Buzz About Bees?” A fellow representative of Johnny’s Selected Seeds will also be on hand for one of the other presentations, and Johnny’s has given me some pollinator-friendly seeds to distribute to teachers at my session. Thank you Johnny’s!
Take a look at the agenda for the day; it’s going to be really fun! Readers local to Maine should feel free to share news of this event with teachers you know who might be interested in participating. The cost for tickets is $40, though I believe there are scholarships available if you ask.
A new growing season is upon us, and soon we will be moving to our forever-farm! Subscribe by email to get the latest posts and articles from Runamuk directly to your in-box!
