Recently the National Pollinator Garden Network (NPGN) reached their goal of registering one million gardens with their ‘Million Pollinator Garden Challenge’ and we would like to say congratulations and thank you to all the hard working gardeners doing their part to help our pollinators! The challenge started in 2015 and was designed to create a network of the gardens and outdoor growing areas that support pollinator populations. The NPGN website gives lots of leads to information about natives plants that you can place in your garden to support local pollinating insects and bring buzzing bees and beautiful butterflies to your outdoor spaces. The Wild Ones group and the National Initiative for Consumer Horticulture are two partners in the NPGN that we know and support at JLA so check their websites out for more information!
The project may have reached its goal but you can still register your pollinator garden here to join the ranks of over one million gardeners in the movement to support our pollinators and our environment! If you need assistance we can design and install gardens full of pollinator friendly plants in your home or work landscape this season! Just email us!
