Landscapes of all sizes and uses -- residential gardens, corporate and academic campuses, retail and mixed use developments -- provide essential habitat and foraging plants for pollinators. 

 

Native pollinators and our beloved European honey bees assure productive harvests for New England farmers at all scales -- from backyard vegetable gardeners to major produce growers.

 

We welcome your inquiries regarding how we can help you add pollinator-friendly plantings to your property at any scale.
