Even though times are tough, YOU CAN sustain your family. The Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension have put together a series of workshops that will give you the skills to get started in self-sufficiency.

Bees and other pollinators contribute to the productivity and survival of crops and landscape plants. In this class we will learn ways to improve the environment for pollinators through plant selection and landscape design.  Through discussions and hands-on activities learn why pollinators are so important, the best practices to use in a pollinator-friendly garden, and more.  Kathy Hopkins and Donna Coffin, UMaine Extension Educators will lead you through the discussion and activities.
