As the dandelions come into full bloom at the Honeybee Sanctuary, we give a sigh of relief and a prayer of thanks.  For the beekeeper, dandelions mark the end of scarcity—the page turning from worry, shortage, and diminishing colonies, towards new growth, health, and the guarantee that our bees have survived yet another Winter. Such is the value of this source of nectar and pollen for the bees.  To see the fields spotted with those beautiful yellow flowers brings true joy to our hearts!

We invite you to come celebrate the new season with us at the Sanctuary!  Join us for a tour,  visit our gift shop,  enjoy free dandelion-themed snacks and refreshments, and learn more about what we all can do to help support the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Our director, Alex Tuchman, will be giving a special talk at 2:00 pm.

We will have a large array of special pollinator plants for sale.
