INTRO TO NATIVE POLLINATORS

Join Véronique Perrot, beekeeper of the Oakhurst Garden hives, and learn about how pollinators survive and thrive. This class is suited for the curious gardener and people who think they want to become a Beekeeper. (This workshop is a prerequisite for Beekeeping 101.)

About the Instructor:
For biologist Véronique Perrot, every garden is a laboratory. Amid the soil, the Paris native cultivates plants, studies bees and chickens, and experiments in attracting pollinators using experience and reverence gained while earning her PhD in Evolutionary Biology. She grew up in Paris but spent enough time in Burgundy to learn how to make jam, can beans, and slaughter chickens. To share her expertise, Perrot not only writes for science journals, but teaches about her passions at the Wylde Center. Véronique keeps bees, chickens, a husband and two daughters in Lake Claire, not far from Little 5 Points.
