Read about keeping a garden attractive to bees.bgardenWP_20160521_006beeWP_20160521_004Signs are in English, Vietnamese, Somali, and Cambodian.

The garden sits in High Point Commons Park by the High Point Neighborhood House.

BEES ARE NECESSARY FOR OUR FOOD. IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE, RESEARCH WHAT YOUR COMMUNITY IS DOING TO KEEP BEES. IF YOU CAN, VISIT THE PLACE. TELL US ABOUT IT IN THE COMMENTS.

    I learned that bees fly 12 to 15 miles per hour, and there are 3 types of bees. Field bees visit 50 to 100 flowers during each trip this is interesting because, I had no idea about everything that bees do.
