honey bees aren’t the only pollinator that helps plants thrive. Southern California is a biodiversity hotspot, home to over 700 species of native bees. As urban development marches on, native plant gardens can be a crucial stepping stone for wild bees.
Join us as we visit famed educator, horticulturist, and CNPS Ambassador, Tony Tubbs! In this workshop, Mr. Tubbs (as his students call him) shares his expertise in creating community-engaged education gardens. Tony tells us the story of these California native gardens and tips on how he created, funded, and maintains them for restoration, education, and community project.
