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

    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.
