Prospect Heights Community Farm is now home to two native bee condos courtesy of The Bee Conservancy. With the help of garden members and their families, we installed the homes in two bee-friendly locations in the garden with plenty of morning sun and ample bee forage. Native bees are different from honeybees. They don’t produce honey or wax, they live solitary lives (no queens here!), don’t sting and are even more efficient pollinators than honeybees.
Come visit the condos and see who has checked in. We are expecting several varieties of native bees including mason, leafcutter, and carpenter bees.
