In the Learning Garden
This week in the Learning Garden we put up our brand new Mason Bee House! We also placed the cocoons out so that they can warm up and wake up! Mason Bees are a native, gentle, solitary bee that does not produce honey or sting. Instead, each Mason Bee female spends its short life using mud to build compartments in which to lay its eggs (hence the name "mason"). They are super effective pollinators, collecting pollen that will be stored with the egg. Mason bees are extremely helpful creatures to have in the garden and super simple to care for!
