Plants and Pollinators

We’ve had two great months of speakers on the topics of pollinators and plants!  Thank you Joe and Greg for taking your time to come share with us!

Joe Boggs, an entomologist at The Ohio State University was our guest in July sharing how insects are keystone organisms and that diversity in plants and insects helps keep our ecosystem functioning without or with little chemical controls.

For August, Greg Torres from the Cincinnati Civic Garden Center presented on pollinators and native plants that benefit pollinators.  From early spring pussywillows to the fall asters and goldenrod, there are many native plants that can help support the honey bee.  He recommend Xerces Society as a great source of information.
