Over the years my why changed as my life changed. For me, I didn’t have a why that I thought much about, I don’t think, until I had children that is. My why naturally became my kids, through different times, challenges, struggles, celebrations, my why has always been my family. The kids now include my grandchildren, I have 4 and counting. They are all my why! They are behind the decisions and choices I make.
Why help pollinators?
Pollinators are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Our children and grandchildren are relying on us to take a stand for pollinators. We can’t sit back and hope someone else does something to sustain them… governments move slow, corporations aim for quarterly profits and pollinators, like other species, simply can’t evolve quick enough to keep up with their changing environment.
Pollinators face challenges for a variety of reasons; pesticide use, climate change, non-native gardens, loss of native vegetation and habitat due to industrial development, roadways and our ever-growing population creating a constant need for new housing development. Safe to say all created by us - humans!
This does not mean that we are helpless to make a positive contribution back to nature. We can create spaces in our own backyards that invite pollinators to flourish. We can turn our backyards into a beautiful pollinator reserve.
Take a stand for pollinators!
When you take a stand for something positive the universe has a way of helping you achieve your goals! Set an intention to protect pollinators! Intention turns into action and action creates change!
Now that you have set intention, now what?
We are creating a pollinator package that will be ready to go for Spring. This package will include pesticide free pollinator plants customized to your requirements; sun, shade, partial shade, favourite plants and colours. Interested in more information, email me directly and I'll keep you in the loop. firstname.lastname@example.org
Need a little help? Maybe this is a fun activity to take on with your children or grandchildren or hire our team to come out and plant your garden for you or with you.
Our purpose is to help clients create spaces for birds, bees and butterflies to thrive while also improving the quality of life of those we serve.
