Pollinator Friendly Garden (Video)

Pollinators provide plant diversity by moving pollen from plant to plant to help them grow more efficiently or abundantly. There are up to 150 types of different food crops produced that rely on pollinators, natural forces, animals, insects, and humans.

Become pollinator friendly by educating yourself, learn what pollinators like, choose to weed only and limit chemical usage, plant native plants from local stores, and volunteer at community gardens or nature restoration projects.
