Virtual Grow and Learn: Trees for Bees

Sat Aug 08 | 9am-10am | Virtual

When it comes to perennial nectar sources, it’s hard to beat trees. In this session, you’ll learn about the primary nectar-bearing trees of the Southeast and methods for encouraging their growth and health. We will also discuss how to conserve the forest canopy by planting trees that serve as hosts for butterflies.


Speakers: Jimmy Gatt is a Georgia Journeyman Beekeeper and Board member of Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association. He partners with Trees Atlanta to promote summer-blooming, nectar-bearing trees.


Mike McCord is Trees Atlanta's Food Forest Ranger, responsible for planting and maintaining the Urban Food Forest at Browns Mill, as well as community education and outreach.
