About the Webinar
The webinar will cover the importance of native bee pollinators in organic farming systems, particularly diversified systems that produce many crops per year. We will first discuss the diversity of native bees in farming systems, and the roles they may play in supplementing (or replacing) honey bees for pollination services. Our webinar will also describe an ongoing research project in western Washington on native bee pollinators.
