Pollinator Festival 2018
The Pollinator Festival will feature local experts from non-profits, including the Benton County Soil and Water Conservation District, Marion County Master Gardeners' Bug Group, Oregon Bee Project, OregonFlora, and Salem Audubon Society, who will answer questions about pollinators and gardening for pollinators.
It will also feature educational activities for kids and adults, including garden walks, and materials and instruction for creating your own mason bee nest, as well as plant giveaways, and pre-bundled pollinator garden “kits” for purchase.
Food and drink vendors, In-Fusion Vietnamese, Prologue Pastries, and 1859 Cider will also be on site from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
10% of the nursery's proceeds the day of the event will be donated to The Pollinator Partnership (www.pollinator.org). The event takes place during National Pollinator Week, June 18-24.
The Pollinator Festival is free and open to the public.
