Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources

 Pollinators

Pollinators are a diverse group of organisms that perform a vital role in the ecosystem. A pollinator is described as any organism that take pollen from one flower and directly deposit it on another flower.

Some different species of pollinators include:

  • Honey bees, bumble bees, etc.

  • Butterflies

  • Flies

  • Hummingbirds

  • Bats

Unfortunately, due to human influence (pesticides, habitat loss, reduction of resources, etc.), we are losing millions of pollinators. Without pollinators, our crops will go un-pollinating making it become a huge threat for the ecosystem and food security.

It is therefore our duty to protect pollinators by increasing available habitat, increase food sources and floral resources while also reducing the use of pesticides.

Do your part and plant or expand your garden!


Thank you for joining us at the Canada Day Parade in Glen Williams, Ontario and at the Acton Leathertown Festival. By planting these seeds you are helping “Bee the Change” and helping the local pollinators in your area.

If you are curious about planting your own pollinator garden or why you should plant or expand your garden please examine Our Plant Library.

 
 

Our Plant Library

Plants provide habitat and food while aiding in important ecological processes like water quality and soil health. Our Plant Library incorporates a variety of different plants that have an important role in ecological process while also providing habitat and food for different species.

Below are a list of plants that you can click and learn how to plant as well as different benefits when planting the species.

In the future, our library will further cover a variety of different types of plants including trees, herbs, etc.
