Large scale habitat-destruction, the overuse of pesticides, climate change all play a role but the question remains, what can the average person do? Join Dan Jaffe, author of Native Plants for New England Gardens, as we discuss what each and every one of us can do to help the pollinators. Which plants are the best to plant, what strategies can we follow to create robust pollinator habitat, and how do we do it all without losing the beauty and usability of the gardens we love?
