GreenWorks & BeeHab Team up to Plant Pollinator Patch at Buncombe Park

Picture

The Buncombe Fruit & Nut Club promotes better land use and a culture around sustainability. They also want people to understand how they can help pollinators.  So the Fruit & Nut Club joined forces with Asheville GreenWorks and BeeHab to plant a demonstration pollinator patch in their orchard at the Buncombe County Sports Park just outside Asheville, in Candler. Diane Almond of BeeHab and Lisa Wagner of the SC Botanical Gardens are busily designing the plot to be filled with native species from the Bee City USA Pollinator Friendly Plant List.  They’re choosing plants that will bloom in succession from spring to fall and tolerate full sun and dry conditions.  The bees are going to love this patch!
