Many California gardeners are removing their water-hungry turf and replacing it with lower-water plants that provide food and habitat for bees and other animals. But if all you know about garden maintenance is how to start the lawnmower, deciding what to plant and learning how to maintain it can be daunting.

Aimed at beginning bee gardeners, this class will cover the basics of turf conversion and weed control along with plant selection for bees and other pollinators. We’ll also cover maintenance of a turf yard compared to planted borders.

The lecture portion of the class will be pre-recorded and provided to participants in advance; the hands-on portion is a detailed look at growing common bee plants and will take place at the UC Davis Bee Haven garden on April 1.
