Be a Friend To Pollinates

rena 1


Pollinators are insects and animals that carry pollen from one plant to another. These include bees, wasps,butterflies, moths, ants, birds and more. Did you know that pollinators are key to the food and flowers we
enjoy and ultimately our food security?

•3/4 of the foods we eat — fruits, nuts, vegetables, and herbs — need pollinators to reproduce.

•With pollinators in your yard, you’ll triple the yield of fruit and veggies in your garden — no more lumpy strawberries and bumpy squash!
As many of you are aware, over the last few few decades, there has been a rapid decline in the
pollinator population for many reasons most of which are linked to intensive agriculture operations and the
widespread use of pesticides. The best hope we have of returning these creatures into the environment is by way of our gardeners.

•Your LRNA Environment committee recommends allocating a part of your garden to plants that
attract pollinators. Among these is the Milkweed plant; an important and favorite plant of the
Monarch butterfly and other pollinators. Milkweed is a beautiful flowering plant providing rich
nutrients and shelter for laying eggs. Like Dandelions, Milkweed produces many seeds. When not
controlled the plant can quickly spread. Unlike dandelions, the Milkweed seeds are contained in.
We will be selling some milkweed at the Community Garden planting event and would love to see you there!
