The garden club post explained that they will be joining with others to help restore and protect pollinators' habitats, "... members will be providing food and habitat for pollinators in our home gardens (can even be a container on a deck or a condo window planter), as well as through public garden projects, youth garden projects, nursing homes, botanical gardens, business areas, and government offices."
You can help by taking the three steps outlined in this handout.
If you have your own garden, all the resources you need to get underway are at this site. If you live in a rental or condominium, ask the management company or board of trustees to take a pollinator mindset when planning the common area gardens.
When you consider the importance of what pollinators do for us, learning more and taking action is the least we can do to help turn around this critical shortage.
