Developing A Program To Cultivate Bee Forage

Q: I will be leasing two acres of land beneath some power lines. I want to develop a program that would cultivate bee forage, part of our effort to make Dunwoody a Bee City. I have support from local nature centers and bee clubs but am always open for more ideas, connections, and affordable sources of seeds and plants. 

A: What an excellent idea; I wish you great success! There is a tremendous amount of information on honeybees and wild bees available from the University of Georgia Bee Laboratory. I’ve put links to their great publications at http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/establishing-a-bee-pasture/.
