Want to learn more about beneficial insects in your garden?

Insects are often viewed as garden pests.  However, most gardeners know that insects can also play an important role in helping to maintain a healthy garden.

Veronica Wahl, PhD, Urban Ecology Coordinator, and the UNIBUG Team from Douglas College will give a brief talk about the User Network for Insect Biology in the Urban Garden (UNIBUG) Project, a collaborative project to learn more about urban garden ecosystems, with a focus on insects.

For the last three summers, they have been learning how different plants might attract pest-eating insects, known as “biological controls” and this year’s program has expanded to include pollinators.

Come to GreenDrinks to learn more about their newest community pollinator project, a family-friendly sustainable gardening activity, to host a mason bee house of your own.
