planting for pollinators

Pollinators need our help, now more than ever. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds play a critical role in healthy ecosystems, and we depend on them for a third of the world's food supply. Faced with habitat loss and increasing urbanization, pollinator populations are declining worldwide—as gardeners, we have an opportunity to be part of the solution and create habitat and food for these struggling creatures.
