Attract Bees!

Did you know pollinators are responsible for one out of three bites of food you take in each day?

Pollinators are at a critical point in their own survival.  Many reasons contribute to their recent decline.  Read more below to find out how we can stop this!

A Pollinator Garden Should Incorporate:

- Use plants that provide nectar and pollen sources.

- Provide a water source.

- Be situated in sunny areas with wind breaks.

- Create large "Pollinator Targets" of native or non-invasive plants

- Establish continuous bloom throughout the growing season

- Eliminate or minimize the impact of pesticides.
