Get Busy as a Bee… with Bee Keeping

Instructors: Claude Nutt and Rodolfo Bernal

Saturday, February 14; 1-3pm

$10/$20 Members/Non-members

Why keep bees? It’s fun and extremely interesting. Bees need our help. You can do it for the pollination, do it for the bees, and do it for the enjoyment. You can experiment with your bees, and best of all… you get honey! You’ll learn and experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. You get to build things (with your children or grandchildren). You’ll get to meet interesting people and make new friends. All fun reasons to learn about bees!

Microgreens are easy to grow, take little space, and deliver 4-6 times more nutrients than mature leaf vegetables. Learn how to start, grow and harvest microgreens and go home with two trays – one ready for harvest and one that you plant during the class. Class size is limited, so sign up now!

If there was ever a near-perfect perennial for Kentucky, the hellebore is it! Evergreen foliage, winter and spring flowering, good looking foliage all summer . . . what’s not to love!? And Yew Dell just happens to have one of the best collections in the land. Come learn about culture, biology, new varieties and more. And we’ll have plenty of great plants to buy as well so you can start (or augment!) your own collection. Come early . . . plants sell out quickly.

You’ll craft a hypertufa planter of your own design and then select from a wide selection of succulents to plant the perfect no (ok...very low) maintenance container for the garden. Part 2 is your opportunity to give your creation a distressed look if you like.

Whether you are looking for trees or shrubs, perennials or vines, native or exotic, we’ve got ‘em in spades. We’ll have special items in our shop, a great collection of garden vendors, children’s activities, food and more.
