We love our pollinators in the SFC Teaching Garden. To see them busy at work in the squash blossoms, on the sunflowers and buzzing all over the cilantro and oregano flowers is a practice in gratitude. They really are instrumental in feeding us, and we’re happy to help educate visitors on their role in agricultural and ecological systems.
Bees can help connect us to other social issues as well. Our neighbors at Creative Action work to inspire young minds through the arts. They offer after school programs at various elementary schools throughout Austin, and at their center - right next door to SFC.
