    Why is it important to take care of pollinators?

    There can simply not be a future without pollinators!! The good news is, everyone can do something about it, and by doing it make their life more beautiful. Watch this Pollinator Pathway webinar on great and easy ways to modify our country and city landscapes to offer our pollinators rest and food!

    Dependable fresh food, better prices (cutting out carbon-heavy supply chain and grocery stores), supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these benefits (or others not listed here) inspires you the most?

    Food access is one of the most inspiring challenge because in my point off view, it is one that can be most easily achieved and yields the most benefits: restore the Earth's biodiversity, build community, bring joy of eating good food and enjoying good health, of sharing knowledge and food, among many other benefits! During this challenge I have: started seedlings of native plants and vegetables, registered to a CSA, walked with community members building a Food Coop, and watched my town's Transition group's webinar on a garden share project, and more. Vive food self-sufficiency!!
