Our guest at 8:30 was Kelly Rouke, who is the Director or Programs and Operations at the Pollinator Partnership: a non-profit dedicated to promoting the health of pollinators through conservation, education, and research. To say that we hosted an expert on pollinators in California is a mild understatement. Did you know that there are 600 species of native bees in California, not including the honeybee?
Our hour #2 is once again reliably chaired by Ms. Edie Tanem; she’s all up to date on this weeks’ opportunities for events of interest to the Bay Area gardening community, and once you hear this you will be too! Then it’s right back to the phones and all the gardening, fruit tree, lawn management, pest management questions we can pack into an hour of radio!
