Pollinators Are Our Friends - How YOU can help them


We depend on pollinators for a third of the fruits and vegetables we eat. If they disappear so do we.

By planting pollinator friendly gardens we all thrive!

Pollinator Tips:

- Keep your dandelion! These are the usually the first flowers to appear. Not only do they fix your soil and offer you medicine, they are the first fresh food our pollinators get to see after a long winter

- Follow David Suzuki's 7 Tips To Help Pollinators

- Create a pollinator patch

- Get involved with your local seed library to receive and share pollinator friendly seed so others can grow and support our pollinators!

- Make seed bombs with non-invasive seed and throw them everywhere! Seriously, I have a stock in my car and throw them into ditches. Also, although I think this is common sense, I should mention that you should ask land owners before you throw!!

- PLEASE be careful with pesticides. There are many ways to deter pests naturally using companion planting and diatomaceous earth

- Create shelter for pollinators by building bee hotels

Plants for Saskatchewan:

~ Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus): Easy to establish

AND SO MANY MORE....

As a bonus, each one of these plants, and many more, are highly medicinal, can deter pests in the garden, help other plants thrive, are edible and provide amazing nutrients.

Rediscover the magic, wonder and thoughtfulness of nature...
