If you are interested in learning about plants used to attract honey bees, join this *FREE* pollinator garden tour at Kalamazoo Valley's Food Innovation Center, 224 E. Crosstown Pkwy.
Enjoy a tour of the gardens featuring a variety of nectar and pollen-producing plants in a way that attract pollinating insects, like bees, during different times of the year. Ask questions about starting your own pollinator garden, and receive a flower seed-packet to take home and plant.
