Learn about the Buzz for Clearwater’s Community Garden

At 3rd Annual Brunch

Bees and pollinators will be on the educational agenda on August 20st, when Clearwater Community Gardens hold their 3rd Annual Community Garden Brunch Fundraiser at the Church of Scientology’s Historic Fort Harrison retreat. Tickets for the brunch are $20, with all funds collected from ticket sales going to the Community Garden. The event will begin at 11:00am in the Fort Harrison’s Crystal Ballroom and will end by 1:30.

“We will be celebrating our success over the past two years while raising funds for a Bee and Pollinator habitat at our garden,” said Howard Warshauer, the founder of the Community Garden. “We do this while we enjoy the excellent food from the Ft. Harrison staff and chefs, the camaraderie of our supporters, wonderful entertainment and more.”

The Community Garden’s pollinator garden will attract bees and other pollinators, and will help ensure the continued health of the garden, said Warshauer.  Per OneGreenPlanet.com, the work done by bees and other pollinators account for nearly one-third of all food produced. Pollination is essential to plant reproduction.  Included in the event will be a raffle of gift cards and vouchers to some of Downtown Clearwater’s shops and restaurants, and many garden items. All proceeds will benefit the Gateway Community Garden.

In its first two full years of operation, the Community Garden has expanded to 36 plots, regularly hosting potluck dinners and educational programs at the Moss Construction Shelter.  For more information on this event or to RSVP, please call (727) 793 4446.
