    10 am to 12 noon

    This seminar takes a look at all the pollinators you are likely to find in this area and examines how we can garden all year round to attract these insects and ensure a colourful, productive, and environmentally friendly garden.

    Three-quarters of all major food crops need pollinators, mostly insects, to help them reproduce and produce fruits and seeds that will ensure a new generation of plants

    The best-known pollinator, the honey bee, is not native to North America and is in trouble around the world. Not so well known is that there are a host of other, very efficient pollinators that can and do pick up the slack."
