On the Road Tour – All a-Buzz Blooms

May 23 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Join the WSU Extension Clark County Master Gardener program for an on-the-road- tour and leave the driving to us! Our first stop is Smart Bee Pollination and La Center Gardens & Family Farm, two complementary farms next door to each other. Smart Bee Pollination’s honeybees pollinate flowers throughout the PNW and the neighboring Farm. Owner and third-generation beekeeper, Viktor Plyushchev Jr., will give a talk on bees.

The Parson family owns La Center Gardens & Family Farm, growing daffodils, tulips, lilies, sunflowers and more. John Parsons will give us a on his Farm. Up next is La Center Tree farm. A u-cut Christmas tree farm for the last 22 years, they will be transitioning to timber land to preserve open space, improve wildlife habitat and benefit future generations. Steve Boynton will give us a talk on his vision. Lunch on your own (no sack lunches) at Los Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant.

Last stop is Tsugawa Nursery, they have over five acres of retail space, they specialize in Japanese maples, bonsai and water gardens. There we’ll learn what native plants are the best pollinators.
