Upcoming Events

Poring over seed catalogs and pollinator mixes can be confusing, which is why the UGA Bee Lab created a pollinator garden "flat" to help you get started! We carefully picked flowering plants that will attract an array of different pollinators and other beneficial insects. We want your pollinator garden to be successful, which is why we choose plants suited for the Piedmont region here in Georgia. Pollinator garden flats will include 21 plants and are $75. All proceeds go to support bee research. Your pollinator garden flat will be available for pick up at the UGA Bee Lab located at 1221 Hog Mountain Road on May 27th from 10 – 2pm. There will be bee lab personnel there to answer questions. PLUS, there will be additional plants for sale the day you pick up your pollinator garden. No cash! Checks are the preferred method of payment, or you can order your flat online. Order your flat here.  There are a limited number of flats.
