The Problem

The problem we wish to fix is pollinator decline. Pollinators are essential to the ecosystem to reproduce plants, however they are in danger of decline largely due to pesticides, modernized agricultural farming, habitat loss, and climate change.

Our Plan

The action we are planning includes building new pollinator beds at The Greenwood School Community Garden to help create an educational, hands-on environment for children to learn about New England native plants and the importance of enhancing pollinator populations. We also want to have this resource to educate the community about the importance of protecting pollinators from collapse. We aim to create a friendly habitat for pollinators to thrive. Our goal is to improve the pollinator population by planting a diverse selection of non-invasive native plants and pollinator plants to provide shelter and food for wildlife, such as bees, butterflies, ants, moths, beetles, lizards, and bats.
