DIY Bee Nests for Ground-Dwelling Bees

This past fall, Pollination Biologist and Project Manager Susan Chan helped lead a pollinator planting project at Lunar Rhythm Gardens, to help conserve foraging and nesting habitat for essential pollinating insects. Results won't be seen until well into the growing season, but we've got very high hopes that this garden will attract and house more pollinators than ever!

In the meantime, here's Sue describing the importance of bumble bees in the market garden, and explaining how you can construct simple nests for these types of bees using items found around the farm.
