LANDSCAPE FOR POLLINATORS
A Pollinator Garden with Native Plants brings joy and awe that even the most beautiful ornamental flowers can never do. Ornamental plants are introduced and, therefore, not part of our ecosystem. Consequently they miss the deeper connection to the whole ecosystem and the essence of life.
In the big picture, your pollinator garden helps draw more carbon into the soil and counteracts climate change. By matching the right plants to the place you care for, you provide food and shelter and will see biodiversity increase quickly in front of your eyes.
Save Time and Money
We have experience and are here to help.

A Pollinator Garden is A Feel-Good Garden
Go on a vacation right in your garden.
Experience the sweet scent of vanilla, luxurious colours and outrageous colour combinations, a relaxing soundscape, long bloom times and always someone visiting, if bee, bird or butterfly.
We can help you choose plants that will thrive in your garden conditions and get you started successfully.
If you have children or grandchildren or are a kid at heart, a pollinator garden will bring wonder and awe to your doorsteps. Get out in the morning to look for monarch caterpillars munching on your milkweed, looking bigger every day. Enjoy seeing many butterflies basking in the sun and sipping nectar throughout the day, creating the most stunning colour combinations with their wings and the flowers they land on. Slender through your garden in the evening and find male bees sleeping all curled up in some flowers or hanging from some flower pedals. Discover shiny metallic green bees or bees with black and white stripes during the summer. Notice how wild bee species become numerous and then disappear during the season. Observe how different species of native bees prefer different flowers, how some collect pollen on their legs while others on their stomach and some not at all. Why? Enjoy the birds feeding on the seeds in winter, swaying on elegant flowerheads in the icy wind.
By creating a pollinator garden, you allow life to unfold again how nature intended it. Exuberant, beautiful, and full of intelligent relations.
A pollinator garden can also increase your curb appeal, lower flood risk and save you time mowing the lawn.

NUTRIENT CYCLING IS KEY TO FERTILE SOIL
The soil must be alive to be the foundation of a healthy and low-maintenance garden. Bacteria, Protozoa, Amoebae, and Nematodes all play a role in nutrient cycling. Fungal hyphae in symbiosis with plant roots can make your garden more self-sufficient. As an extension of plant roots, the symbiotic fungal networks make plants more drought-resistant and fungi, as chemical wizards, will supply the plants with the required nutrients.
In the big picture, fungi store carbon longer and in higher concentrations in their hyphae than plants and therefore provide a key solution in storing huge amounts of carbon in the soil. Even in your garden, you can create conditions to promote the underground network of fungi through less - but more thoughtful - maintenance practices, and you will help to counteract climate change. As a side effect, the soil chemistry will change, bringing your garden into a more advanced successional state which will not allow weeds to dominate.

About The Speaker
I am very passionate about solutions to counteract climate change and biodiversity loss and concerned about the effect on human mental and physical health caused by alienation from nature. I have studied native plants and their associated fauna, soil, and societal norms for the last four years. Science and traditional Indigenous knowledge offer powerful and often straightforward solutions to these daunting problems of our time. I have gained practical knowledge through the experience of converting my garden into a pollinator paradise, organizing community volunteer work and sharpening my observation skills. We are in a time when positive environmental change gets embraced exponentially. Therefore, I am excited to take you on this journey. This experience often sets people on fire or, as the elders say, wakes up the blood memory to reconnect, act and ultimately inspire others again.
