Our Support of the National Pollinator Garden Network
We’ve been encouraging our customers to support the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge for the last three years, and are happy to report that National Pollinator Garden Network met and exceeded their goal! In three years, 1,040,000 gardens were registered with the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC), involving an estimated 8 million people, concentrated in the U.S. and Canada with some in Mexico and across the globe. From tiny yards to public gardens, the million plus gardens add up to a network of approximately 5 million acres of enhanced or new pollinator habitat.
Moving forward, the 2019 call to action is designed to build on the momentum of Challenge in two ways: 1) Expanding garden habitat by asking Americans to plant at least three different pollinator-friendly plants that bloom in three different seasons (spring, summer and fall) to help ensure a consistent food supply for pollinators. The MPGC map will stay open for new registrations, and plant/garden descriptions. 2) Track the outcomes of this movement, by encouraging everyone to participate in citizen science projects that help pollinators at https://www.scistarter.org/pollinatorgardens.
