GARDENERS ADDING POLLINATORS 

(BeeGAP Program) 

The partnership between NGC and Crown Bees is coming to Maine.  GCFM is  supporting this partnership by increasing awareness of adding native bees to our gardens by adding Mason Bees.  Mason bees are SOLITARY, gentle, rarely stinging and are harder working pollinators.  Honey Bee population levels have dropped by 50% in the past 25 years.  The adding of Mason bees will be appreciated by backyard gardening enthusiasts as well as commercial growers.    

You can check out their website at www.crownbees.com/

How can you get involved?  Raise Mason Bees in your own garden and provide habitats for our native solitary nesting bees by adding nesting materials. 

GCFM will be offering Crown Bees Products through the generous folks at Crown Bees Fundraising opportunity. These products and bees will be available at upcoming District Meetings, Convention and Fall Conference. 

More information on Mason Bees can be found on the NGC website, in The National Gardener, (Fall 2013 Issue) and/or by contacting Barbara Longstaff, GCFM Horticulture Chairman and BeeGAP Project Coordinator
