Insects pollinate by accident, but for us humans pollination is absolutely essential: one third of all plant species that become our food require pollination, accounting for over half of our food supply by volume. Wayland resident Kaat Vander Straeten will teach us about pollination from the point of view of the insects, the flowers, the farmer and the 100% of our population that gets to eat!

Keep your hands busy while you learn by constructing a Mason Bee Hotel. Mason bees are solitary bees, unlike the honey bee who builds a hive. Female Mason bees build their own nests, gather their own food, and lay their own eggs. With all this work to do, Mason bees are far too busy to be aggressive towards people.

Kaat Vander Straeten is a Wayland beekeeper, bee-educator and activist, and the founder of BEEleive, the MetroWest beekeepers group
