The City is hosting these talks to bring the PollinateTO Community Grants to the public’s attention. The deadline for these grants is January 8th and they provide up to $5,000 for pollinator habitat creation projects that educate and engage the community.
About the presentation:
Wild About Bees celebrates the important role of pollinators to food security and ecosystem health. Along with exploring the differences between honeybees and native bees, and the threats that pollinators face, this presentation offers plenty of practical information on creating pollinator gardens: how to get started, useful plants to choose for beauty and low-maintenance in a broad range of conditions, and tips on maintaining your pollinator garden.
