Build a Bug Hotel with the East End Food Co-Op

June 23rd, 2018 10:00am - 12:00pm

Join Katy Lydon of Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery for a fun-filled day exploring the wonderful world of beneficial insects and the plants that house and feed them. We will begin the day with a brief discussion about how to identify beneficial insects. After this short lesson, we will be taken on a guided discovery through the garden, where we’ll hunt for the “good guys” and observe the plants that support bug life. The garden is full of critters with stories to tell! Following the bug scavenger hunt, we’ll enjoy a short skit about a garden bug’s life, performed by our friend Valerie Herrero. Healthy snacks will be served during storytime, courtesy of the Co-op Kids Club. Finally, we will finish off the day by breaking up into small groups to build a series of bug hotels. Each participant will leave with plans to build their very own bug hotel at home. This event will happen RAIN OR SHINE!
