Native Plant Workshop: Pollinators

April 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join Kim Eierman, founder of EcoBeneficial and author of The Pollinator Victory Garden: Winning the War on Pollinator Decline –

Many pollinator species have suffered serious declines in recent years. It’s a serious problem for all of us since pollinators are responsible for the pollination of 80% of all flowering plants, and at least 30% of the food that we eat.  Unfortunately, most of our landscapes offer little in the way of appropriate habitat and forage. With simple strategies, you can attract and support not just bees, but an array of pollinators that have different requirements. Learn how to create a Pollinator Victory Garden to help win the war on pollinator decline.
