Attracting Bees and Pollinators
A Recap from CPO 10 August Meeting

CPO 10 heard all about bee health and beekeeping at its August 2014 meeting. According to the USDA bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops such as almonds and other nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. Did you know about one mouthful in three in the diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination?

Bees need help to ensure they have a healthy habitat and diet. Find out what you can do through gardening and other actions around your home and property. If you are interested in beekeeping, resources are available. Start here with the handouts brought to CPO 10.

Bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops such as almonds and other nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. About one mouthful in three in the diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination.
