The Importance of Pollinators in Food Production
July 14, 2018 @ 1:00 am - 1:45 pmFree
Did you know that one out of every three bites of food we eat is a result of pollinators? Bees are so important that, in most cases, farmers pay to have bee hives temporarily trucked in just to pollinate their crops. What would happen if we no longer had pollinators to help us grow the food we eat? Join Dakota County Master Gardener and bee expert, JoAnne Sabin, as she discusses how vital pollinators are to keeping healthy food on our tables. Don’t miss this freeclass hosted by the Open Door’s Garden to Table Program!
JoAnne Sabin’s love of gardens, nature, and nutrition led her to become a University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener in 2004 and a beekeeper in 2005. She has been teaching gardening and honey bee related topics throughout Minnesota since 2004, including presentations at garden expos, garden clubs, beekeeping groups, schools, community education, master gardener meetings, and both the Dakota County and the State Fair. She has been gardening in Minnesota for 38 years.
