Course Description


Do your part to keep bees and other pollinators busy this summer. Bees, butterflies, and other insects play a crucial role in both nature and in agriculture through the process of pollination. They pollinate everything from the flowers outside our window to the food we put on the table. According to the USDA, one third of all agricultural output in the United States depends on pollinators! But their numbers are in decline. You can help by growing the types of plants that attract and sustain these important insects, and you’ll have a beautiful, colorful garden to boot.
