Save the bees
Julia likes fireweed but it's a bit tricky in a garden. Buttercups aren't a great idea, since they're really tricky to weed and seem to grow everywhere without help.
Otherwise, leaving brassicas such as kale to flower is a great way to feed bees early in the spring.

Our landscape architecture student volunteers already have some great design ideas that place the bee hives close to the herb gardens, so I think we're well on our way.
Please send your comments if you have more ideas for the new site!
