Title: ECOSF's Bakers Alley - Urban Beekeeping and Attracting Native Pollinators to your Garden
When: 30.03.2013 11:00 - 17:00
Description: ECOSF invites you to catch the buzz and swarm on over to the School Farm for a busy day of learning and sharing all about bees and the sweet, sweet gifts they offer. Besides learning the basics of beekeeping with local beekeeping experts, we'll also discuss how to encourage native bees and other important pollinators into your garden with native and climate appropriate plants.

Bakers Alley is also a potluck so bring a dish or dough to bake or share, toppings for pizza, and if you got, em' your own utensils to keep this a zero waste event.

Activities:

11am - Fire up oven, morning refreshments courtesy of Arizmendi Bakery, and general farm work prepping for an afternoon planting of wildlife attracting native plants
12pm - Interactive discussion of urban beekeeping including how to set up a hive, maintaining your colony, dealing with swarms, how to extract honey, as well as where to get supplies and bees to get started.
1pm – Break for oven fired pizza - bring your own toppings to share!
2pm – Learn how to create a garden to attract native bees and other pollinators including butterflies, birds, and beneficial insects.

Late Afternoon-more work and hangin out, conversatin, eatin and bein merry

As always, the ovens will be blazing and we’ll provide the dough so bring some pizza toppings, or some other local, seasonal fare to share and compare at our ultra-local potluck.

Also check out the farm and see appropriate technology demos like solar ovens and dehydrators (if it’s sunny), rocket stove, compost toilet, pedal power, earthen structures and of course the cob oven

Bring your own utensils if you got em, and musical instruments, parlor tricks and special talents are always welcome too
