Laura Horn

Laura has been chasing wild bees for 20 years. With so many reasonable people running away from bees and screaming, she started the Wild Bee Project in 2015 to teach that wild bees don't sting. "Gardening for bees" became her go-to workshop as she discovered all the wonderful garden people in Salt Lake who are curious about wild bees and seeing more bees in their gardens. The Wild Bee Project now focuses on habitat, helping urban vegetable growers set aside and landscape parts of the farm to retain wild pollinators and other beneficial insects, with funding from USDA.
