We need pollinators and with pollinator populations in decline, they need our help as well.

Join expert and award-winning author Heather Holm for a fascinating discussion on the importance of bees and other insects in pollinating the fruits and vegetables we grow, as well as how you can use native plants to help support your local pollinators.  She will also discuss how to attract beneficial insects that help control garden pests.
