Join us for a free class about Minnesota's pollinators on Saturday, October 22 at the Muriel Sahlin Arboretum, 2525 Dale St. N. Learn about who Minnesota’s pollinators are and how individuals can help protect them.
Pollinators are vital to our state, national, and global food systems. Since 2007, bee hives have suffered an unprecedented die-off in the United States due to a combination of higher stress, commercial pollination, mites and diseases, and the use of neonicotinoid pesticides.
Participants will safely observe a live honeybee hive, sample honey and build homes for wild bees.
This class is presented by Erin Rupp, Executive Director of Pollinate Minnesota, an education and advocacy organization that works with communities to promote education about bees and the catalysts they can be for systems change.
The class is free but registration is requested. Register at www.cityofroseville.com/bees.
The class is part of Roseville’s Edible Orchard Project. Earlier this year the City partnered with The Food Group, a non-profit organization that provides healthy foods and other resources to more than 200 hunger relief agencies in Minnesota. The Fruits of the City program provide free educational programs to encourage residents to grow and harvest their own local foods.
