Gardening Pollinator Day Celebration Sat May 10, 2014 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Where:
480 Hillsboro St, Pittsboro, NC, United States
— 2 weeks away

Come join the Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension and the Chatham County Beekeepers' Association for our 7th Annual Pollinator Day Celebration on Saturday, May 10, from 9:00 am til 1:00 pm on the lawn next to the Chatham Mills Farmers' Market at Chatham Mills in Pittsboro, NC. We have a great program planned for folks of all ages and all activities are free! You can hear presentations about beekeeping – how to get started, equipment needs, management tips – from experienced beekeepers. Watch an expert beekeeper work an actual hive inside a bee cage (bees inside, participants outside!) and see honey bees up close and personal. Learn about what to plant in your garden to attract butterflies and bees and other pollinators. Tour Cooperative Extension's demonstration Pollinator Paradise Garden at Chatham Mills and get a close look at visiting pollinators. Sample delicious baked goods made with local honey and get recipes for how to cook with honey.
Ever tried honey wine? Co-sponsors Starrlight Mead will be doing a mead tasting and a mead making demonstration. Visitors can also visit the meadery where they produce their award-winning honey wines on the Chatham Mills property!
Visit our kids' tent with lots of activities for kids including a scavenger hunt, plant-a-pollinator-plant, beeswax candle making, face painting, Chatham County pollinator coloring books, and more! Watch "Bee TV" - park yourself in front of an observation hive and watch the worker bees tending to the queen. It's mesmerizing!
We will be giving away native plants and gift certificates from local nurseries throughout the day, thanks to generous support from Niche Gardens, Mellow Marsh Farm, Cure Nursery, and Big Bloomers Flower Farm.
