Pollinators are a part of the food web, for people and animals alike. The global decline in pollinators has profound for our future. The good news is people everywhere can take small actions to help pollinators around them, whether they have a simple window box garden or a large farm. One significant to help pollinators is to create a pollinator-friendly garden to provide food and for insects and birds alike. But before picking up a shovel, it’s important to what birds, insects or butterflies you are hoping to attract.
