We are excited to begin making our yard and community more pollinator friendly. We have plans for a pollinator friendly small field planting which will include rotating seasonal pollinator friendly crops like clover, sunflowers, and cover crops like buckwheat as well some perennial plantings nearby to encourage pollinator visitors and inhabitants. We are going to put in some fruit trees, such as apples and peaches. A pollinator hotel will also be built and put in the front area of the house. A small fish pond will be constructed to sustain and encourage pollinators on the property. There are many people who walk on our road for exercise and I believe they will enjoy looking at our front field planting and at the pollinator hotel. I would like to include signage explaining our pollinator friendly plantings and structure. Our neighbors have also complained that they don’t see many pollinators in their gardens, so we feel this project will help expand pollinators across the neighborhood.
