Native Pollinator Hedgerows for Farmers

Pollination is essential for most food crops and it is the native pollinator- bees, butterflies, insects, and birds – that are the most efficient workers at doing this. They not only provide the very basic task of pollinating but they also increase crop yield and help to create a richer tasting product.

The use of pesticides and herbicides have decimated the overall population of these pollinators. The loss of habitat for breeding and lack of food supply has further contributed to the decline. As they provide the basic underpinning of our ecological system, it is crucial to repair these problems. Farmers can be a significant actor in this process by Interspersing farm fields with habitat hedgerows and diminishing the use of destructive chemicals. I can work with you to accomplish this very important task.
