For the month of May, Piedmont Picnic Project will be focusing on pollinators, all they do for us, and what we can do for them!
What can you expect from our Pollinators in the Piedmont series?
Pollinator Picnic | Saturday, May 9th, 2-4 PM | 308 Colleton Rd. (parking on street)
Come have a picnic provided by the bees while we create a picnic for the bees! Learn how to install a pollinator garden at a personal residence while enjoying a light picnic of wildflower & honey drinks and treats.
Wild History Pollinator Walk | Saturday, May 23, 2-4 PM | Surprise Location TBA
Join Piedmont Picnic on another Wild History walk where we’ll point out wild edibles along the way while we share the history around our topic and location! This month’s theme will be… what else? Pollinators! So we’ll talk bees, stings, pollinator habitat, honey, and wildflowers… of course!
Our TBA location will be at a surprise location along part of Raleigh’s greenways, as part of our on-going 100 Miles in 100 Days series, walking and foraging all 100 miles of Raleigh’s greenways in the 100 days of spring!
Our blogging will also be following our pollinator theme – looking into all things wildflower, bee, and honey! Topics will include any and all of the following, and more!
- Get the buzz on Honeygirl Meadery
- Queen Bee: A history of women and honey
