On the north side of West Liberty Street behind our corporate offices Bee Culture Magazine and Root Candles have created a pollinator paradise!
Join us August 22nd from noon until 2 PM and take a stroll through our Pollinator Gardens. Watch as the Medina County Beekeepers host a live honey bee demonstration (safely in a screened tent), and visit with Medina’s Master Gardeners, Ernst Seeds Agronomist, The Pollinator Partnerships Monarch Research Scientist, and OSU’s Pollinator Specialist from the OSU Pollinarium in Wooster, and representatives of the Medina County Master Gardener Program and their Phenology Garden, sponsored by Medina OSU Extension. Plus, representatives from Pollination Stewardship will be here to show how you can help all pollinators and what they are doing to provide new and more healthy forage for our bees to dine one. The Ohio Department Of Agriculture’s State Apiary Inspector will also be here with information on the health of honey bees in Ohio, and what’s being done to help them with the Ohio Department Of Transportation to provide more and better environment for all pollinators.
The Root Candles Retail Store will host a honey tasting in their Café. Enjoy several varieties of honey and experience why not all honey tastes the same. Try some of those you’ve never heard of before! The Café will also feature various honey themed treats including a home brewed honey beer!
Admission is free. Fun and educational for the entire family! Stop by on your way home from the Farmer’s Market and Main Street Medina’s International Festival on the square. Learn all about our pollinators and what Bee Culture Magazine, Root Candles and all of our Pollinator Garden partners are doing to help.
