The basics

The easiest way to help conserve  pollinators is to provide them with a pesticide-free habitat that  provides food, shelter, and a place to reproduce.

For a pollinator garden to serve its purpose, it needs to do two things.

1. Provide a source of food for visiting pollinators.

2. Provide opportunities for reproduction in a pesticide-free environment.

Addressing the needs of pollinators to both forage and reproduce is at the heart of every successful pollinator garden.  The orange text below will lead you to various valuable resources.
