June is Pollinator Month – a celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles, and other species that help pollinate more than 1,200 crops. That means that one out of every three bites of food you eat is there because of pollinators. In addition, about 90% of all flowering plants rely on pollinators for the survival of their species. Thus, pollinators also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils, and support other wildlife. During June, at events of all kinds, people can learn more about why we need pollinators and how pollinators need us.

Pollinator Month activities provide gardening tips (and seeds), offer tastings of honey,  present information about bees and beekeeping, guide participants along a unique nature trail, and more.  A complete schedule of events is available at www.bullingtongardens.org/beecityusahendersonville/pollinator-events. Pollinator Month updates are available at www.facebook.com/beecityhendersonville/ . For questions about Pollinator Month, and to volunteer please contact [email protected].

The Pollinator Month celebration is part of Hendersonville’s Bee City USA program, coordinated by Bullington Gardens.
