The "Pollinator Palace" at the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens at Freedom Park is ready for another year of providing a home for the bees, wasps and other insects that do not live in hives but are an important part of the garden process. It is made of palates, bricks, bamboo, bottles, sticks and just about anything that has a hole or can be drilled to make a home for an insect.
