upcoming webinar: enhancing native pollinator populations on farms

posted April 10, 2014

April 17, Noon – 1 pm EDT

We need these farming partners to pollinate our fruit and vegetable crops, yet our native pollinators and honey bees are struggling from multiple threats of pesticide exposure, habitat loss, parasites and diseases.  John Hayden from The Farm Between in Jeffersonville, VT will present on who the native pollinators are, why they are in trouble, and how we can bring back populations with ecologically sound farming practices, pollinator friendly plantings, and by providing nesting and overwintering habitat.
