Celebrate National Pollinator Week at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

by Jonah Holland , PR and Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden 

We’re joining The Pollinator Partnership to celebrate National Pollinator Week, June 16–23, 2014. Did you know that one of every three bites of food we eat is the direct result of pollination? This week in the Children’s Garden do the bee dance or enjoy a ‘Who’s Pollinating the Garden?’ activity to learn about pollinators, how to protect and sustain them, and why they’re important. Plus join us daily from 2-4 p.m. Watch busy worker bees in an observation hive and taste honey from the comb (age 1 and older only). Honey from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is available for purchase in Garden Shop (limited supply).
