May 25: Susan Chan “Pollinator Garden Design”

Our first IN PERSON event in over 2 years, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Sue Chan is our local “bee expert.”  We’re thrilled to have her back. Her enthusiasm for these little pollinators is contagious!  Sue will talk about the importance of pollinators and also give us some tips on designing the perfect pollinator garden.  You’ll have all the tools and tips in hand to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.

Susan Chan is a pollination biologist with a keen interest in crop pollination by wild bees.  Her special area of expertise is the fascinating relationship between pumpkin and squash crops and the solitary wild hoary squash bee that is entirely dependent on them for survival in Ontario.  Susan recently completed her Ph.D. on the effects of pesticides on ground-nesting bees.  She is a proud resident of Selwyn Township where she farms with her family using permaculture techniques to grow food, flowers, and raise chickens and sheep. Susan is also MJ’s country neighbour!
