Free native pollinator presentation
Belfast — Amy Campbell — a committed advocate for native bees and other flower foraging insects — will give a free illustrated presentation titled Bees and Flowers: A Garden Partnership Tuesday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. at Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.
Her talk will include simple ways to identify native pollinators, why they are important, and ways to help them survive and thrive. Also, an exhibit of her photography, capturing intimate views of native pollinators — primarily native bees, busy at work on flowers, will be on display in the Belfast Co-op Cafe through late April.
Campbell is a Master Gardener and photographer who keeps honeybees in Rockport. This event, co-sponsored by the Belfast Free Library and the Belfast Co-op, is the launch of the Co-op's annual organic, native perennial plant sale with Rebel Hill Farm in Clifton. Catalogs will first become available at this event, then will be made available in-store and on the Co-op's website: belfast.coop.
