Plant Pollinator Helpers

                              Decline of Bee's and other pollinators effects nearly  1 out of 3 foods that you eat. Somewhere between 75% and 95% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination from pollinators like birds, bats, butterflies, moths, flies, beetles, wasps, small mammals, and most importantly, bees. They visit flowers to drink nectar or feed off of pollen and transport pollen grains as they move from spot to spot.  You can help by planting some plants that attract pollinators, not only will you be helping bee's and other pollinators but these pollinator attractors will help your garden flourish. For more information visit Pollinator Partnership, and check out their snazzy pollinator helper (in website or app form) to know which plants to grow in your region.
