What's New?

Don't forget to provide shelter for pollinators in the Fall and Winter!

In the past, gardeners routinely cleaned out their gardens in the fall, leaving nothing but bare soil. We now know that is less than ideal for pollinators. Check out this video from the University of Minnesota regarding Fall garden clean-up to learn great tips on how to help pollinators in northern climates overwinter in our backyards. 

For more information on how you can help pollinators thrive in your backyard, check out our Simple Steps to Help Pollinators page.
