Subject: History and Growing of Native Trees
Guest Speaker: Rick/Mary Robertson
Marion and Rick are the owners of B Sweet Honey Nature Company and Puslinch Naturally Native Trees. They have been beekeeping for over 30 years under the company name of B Sweet Honey Nature Co. Initially, they purchased trees to supplement their bee yards only to discover that the trees were imported from south Carolina and did not survive. They decided to start growing trees and shrubs, about 16 years ago, when they could not find native or Carolinian trees from an Ontario source. They have been selling native and Carolinian trees, shrubs and pollinator plants for the last 5 years from seeds that are hand-picked from Ontario sources. They will be sharing with us the history of Ancient and heritage trees, why they are important to pollinators and their own personal knowledge of growing them and their significance to all of us.
