The Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech continues their Walk or Talk series with "Bee-friendly Beef - using wildflowers in pastures to conserve native bees" on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 starting at the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion.

Jennie Wagner, PhD Student in the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences, will talk about bee-friendly beef and using wildflowers in pastures to conserve native bees.

Pollinators affect up to 75% of the global food supply. Although they're extremely important, native bees have declined in recent decades due to habitat loss, leading to an increased interest in conservation. Adding wildflower habitats to pasture systems is one potential way to conserve native bees in a habitat that lacks pollinator resources.

How does adding those habitats affect bee abundance and species diversity in pastures? Can these habitats provide other benefits to agricultural production?

This talk is free and open to the public.

All Wednesday 'Walk or Talks' start at 12:00 pm and will meet at the pavilion.

A visitor pass is required to park in the Hahn Garden visitor lot. Come early to grab a pass from the Hahn Garden staff and find a place to park before the talk begins.
