Nectarivorous Garden

On Tu B'Shevat, January 16, 2014, the campus celebrated the holiday for the trees by planting a garden with plants that are visited by pollinators. Plants were chosen for their attractiveness to bees and their low water requirement, as recommended by Sima Kagan (see recommended bee-plants on her website). This ecological garden will not be treated with chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and is naturally mulched with leaves. It will be a teaching garden, for students from various disciplines, who will monitor pollinator activity, soil quality, insects and micro-organisms. It is located to the right of the main gate on Herzl Street, behind the External Studies building in the direction of our lab.
