Join us for the Professional Gardening Networking Committee Meeting and a Live Webinar by Karl Foord, University of Minnesota - Pollinators and Pesticides: The Factors at Play


The meeting begins at 11:00 am - but you are invited to come at 10:00 am and view the webinar by Karl Foord:   Pollinators and Pesticides: The Factors at Play

Pollinators play a critical role in our food production systems and serve as a keystone species in the natural world providing pollination and thus reproductive services to some 250,000 species of plants. The ways that we humans manipulate the landscape creates significant challenges for pollinators both wild and domestic. Pesticides are only one factor in a system where many factors are at play in both singular and interactive ways. As professionals whose businesses directly impact local landscapes, it is important that we understand the factors at play and how our actions impact these vital creatures.   

It will be a great opportunity to share thoughts and ideas during the webinar. After, we will discuss specific ways our business are responding to the pollinator and pesticide movement; changes we’ve made in response, ways we’ve capitalized, how are we educating consumers, what does the future look like, etc. 


Please RSVP above so we know how many to expect for the webinar and meeting. We hope to see you!
