Supporting our pollinators

Did you know that the types of plants in your garden can have food or habitat value for important wildlife? Native birds, bees and butterflies have evolved over the years alongside specific plant species and need them to thrive.

Pollinators are animals (such as birds or insects) that move pollen from one flower to another, fertilizing our crops and other important plants. Pollinators are important for our food system and for the ecosystem but are threatened by habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change.

You can help

If you have access to outdoor space, you can grow a garden that provides healthy food and natural habitat for our native pollinators. The more of these gardens there are, the more our pollinators are supported!

Check out our workshop video, guidelines document, and FAQ below for all that you need to get started!
