About a third of the food we eat depends on pollinators like birds, bees, or butterflies.
And those food sources are becoming more precarious, because pollinator populations are plunging worldwide.
You can learn about native Ohio plants and pollinators (and what you can do to help them) from Master Gardener Kathy Terrell at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, at our Main Branch.
Terrell’s talk is free and open to everyone. However, we do ask that you register beforehand. You can RSVP online or call the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 241.
By the way, if you’re thinking about introducing more native plants to your garden, you can get them from our Seed Library for free. Here’s how it works:
You can borrow heirloom and organic seeds from us the same way you’d borrow a book or movie. Pick from our dozens of varieties of herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit seeds. Take up to 15 types of seed per year.
All we ask is that when the seeds grow into plants, you save some of its seeds and return them to the library.
