Granville Pollinator
Habitat


A Project of the Granville Gardeners and the NC Cooperative Extension Service


Rationale

Extinction pressures on species that facilitate crop production are threatening the world's food supply, with hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of food and agricultural production annually at stake.

Pollinator populations are in serious decline due to disease, climate change, poor nutrition, chemical use, habitat loss, and other reasons. Pollinators that can't find the right quantity or quality of food (nectar and pollen from blooming plants within flight range) don't survive. Right now, there simply aren't enough pollinator friendly plantings to support pollinators.



Goals

To develop a pollinator garden using plants that can help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and other pollinators.

To create an opportunity for citizens of Granville County -- especially children -- to learn about the importance of planting pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes.
