Healthy gardens host an abundance of different beneficial insects – some pollinating, others preying on plant pests, and all contributing to a dynamic ecosystem.

Learn why and how to increase the allure of your garden to lacewings, ladybugs, parasitic wasps, a diversity of bees, and more. We will look at insects using microscopes, explore how bees see in UV light, and other ways that insects find the plants that support them. Leave with new skills, ideas and tools to support beneficial insects, and grow a healthy garden.
