The Pollinator Victory Garden: Win the War on Pollinator Decline
Countless pollinator species have suffered dramatic declines in recent years. It's a serious problem for all of us since pollinators are responsible for the reproduction 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 for these essential animals. With simple strategies, you can attract and support not just bees, but an array of pollinators that have different requirements. In this online presentation with author Kim Eierman, founder of EcoBeneficial LLC, learn how to create a Pollinator Victory Garden to help win the war on pollinator decline.
