If you’ve enjoyed a cup of coffee in the morning, a slice of watermelon on a hot summer day, or pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, you’ve benefited from a pollinator! In fact, one of every three foods you eat needs the help of pollinators. Keren Giovengo, EcoScapes Sustainable Land Use Manager of the UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, will speak on the diversity and importance of native pollinators and how to select, source, and design pollinator-friendly native plant habitats. You’ll also learn about the role other beneficial insects play in reducing or eliminating chemical exposure to pollinators and other wildlife in our landscapes. Come prepared to look at your garden—and the food on your dinner plate– in a whole new way!
