Million Pollinator Garden Challenge 2019 Posted on 19 Mar 18:12 , 2 comments
JOIN US in the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge! Have you heard of the challenge?
Mary's Heirloom Seeds is joining National Pollinator Garden Network CHALLENGE. according to their recent updates on their website, they have surpassed the million Garden mark last year.
In case you missed it, last week we volunteered at a local Elementary School. Our station was making pollinator-friendly seed balls. If you'd like instructions to make your own CLICK HERE. Part of our presentation was teaching kids about growing food and talking about different types of pollinators. Besides the bees and butterflies, a few other pollinators include bats, ladybugs and even Lemurs!
The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC) is a nationwide call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across America. We will move millions of individuals, kids and families outdoors and make a connection between pollinators and the healthy food people eat.
|BORAGE is a bee-friendly herb and great companion to Tomatoes|
|ECHINACEA (also known as coneflower) is another great pollinator-friendly herb|
