Sign on for this free and informative conversation with authors Danesha Seth Carley and Anne M. Spafford as we celebrate the launch of Pollinator Gardening for the South. This step-by-step guide will answer all of your questions about how to create beautiful gardens designed to welcome beneficial pollinators. Combining up-to-date scientific information with artful design strategies, the authors teach gardeners of all levels to plan, plant, and maintain successful pollinator gardens at home and in shared community sites. Everyday gardeners, along with farmers, scientists, and policy makers, share serious concerns about ongoing declines in bee and other pollinator populations, and here Spafford and Carley deliver great news: every thoughtfully designed garden, no matter how small, can play a huge role in providing the habitat, nourishment, and nesting places so needed by pollinators.
