Did you know that one out of every three bites of food is dependent on pollinators? Birds, bees, butterflies and bats are an important part of our ecosystem because they help transport pollen from one flower to another, helping a wide variety of plants to fruit.
Come learn about these animals and what you can plant to support them! Invite them to your garden and they will do all the work of helping your plants produce more fruits.
Join us “live” on 21 Aug 2021 here, 10 am
