Power to the Pollinators! Come Join us at a Fun Gathering on June 29!

Power to the Pollinators! (1)

Lansdowne has a pollinator garden at Interboro Park, and weather permitting, volunteers will be tending to it on Wednesday, June 29 from 5-7 PM. We would love to see you there!

Lansdowne loves its pollinators: the butterflies, dragonflies, ants, bees, moths, hummingbirds, and beetles that spread pollen from flower to flower and make new plant life possible. 

Lansdowne has a pollinator garden at Interboro Park, and weather permitting, volunteers will be tending to it on Wednesday, June 29 from 5-7 PM. The address is 112 Bartram Ave. We would love to see you there!  Bring your gardening gloves, a trowel, and your filled reusable water bottle.  We’ll have some snacks available, and we’ll have fun getting to know each other.  

Why are we doing this? Well worldwide, we humans would have a tough time without pollinating critters, because many of our food crops simply can’t make new fruits and seeds unless a pollinator helps them out. Yet although humans need pollinators, just about everywhere these creatures are struggling and going down in numbers. They’re declining because people spray chemicals that kill them, because their habitats are being destroyed, and because of climate change.

But there’s no need to panic: we can help pollinators thrive, just as they help us by helping the flowering plants. One way to help pollinators is by growing plants that they’re especially attracted to as places to live and eat—and fly or crawl around spreading that precious pollen. A healthy collection of those plants becomes a pollinator garden, and that’s what we’re going to take care of on June 29.

This eco-gardening event is organized by Lansdowne’s Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) and the Parks and Recreation Department.
