Coming Events

  • Planting for Pollinators Class coming Jan. 18

    Regardless of whether you are a farmer with 5 acres or 5,000, a home gardener or suburban resident, you share in the responsibility of maintaining the health of our pollinators and in the opportunity to create an environment more favorable to both the pollinators and ourselves.

    Honeybees and other pollinators are a vital part of our agricultural system. The annual value of pollination in the U.S. has been estimated at $14.6 billion. This means that one in three bites of food we eat are a direct result of insect pollination.
