Planting for Pollinators in New England

April 6 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Presented by Ed and Marian Szymanski of Lunaria Farm and Apiary

Pollinator decline is a well-publicized ecological reality of our time. But you can make a difference!

Learn how you can create a beautiful, ever-blooming landscape that attracts and supports many different species of pollinators.

They will present information about plants that provide nectar and pollen to honeybees and other pollinators in Eastern Massachusetts. There will be time for your questions at the end of their slide presentation.

By choosing the right plant for the right location you can attract beneficial insects for pest control, keep nature in balance and give pollinators a healthy, fighting chance.

Ed and Marian Szymanski are homesteaders and beekeepers. They live on just over one acre of land in Franklin, Mass. on a lot planted with as little grass as possible. Their homestead includes bees and chickens, and a wide variety of fruits, berries, vegetables and pollinator-specific gardens. Their recent focus has been on identifying plants that provide quality food to bees and other pollinators and incorporating them into the homestead landscape. They are both members of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association. Ed served 4 years as President of Norfolk County Beekeepers Association.
