As designers, we care about pollinator-friendly plantings to support wild populations of bees, birds, butterflies and other pollinators. The result is increased biodiversity and increased pollination which translates into increased food sources for pollinators and other wildlife.
Responding to reduced pollinator numbers, landscape professionals and concerned homeowners are learning more about pollinators’ specific plant and habitat needs and using that knowledge to make planting decisions.
In this workshop, three pollinator experts provide detailed pollinator and plant information. With guidance, your landscape designs and gardens will be part of the solution in support of pollinators
