Join us in celebrating pollinators! Monday, June 17 marks the beginning of Pollinator Week, a national celebration of the amazing invertebrates that are vital to the health of ecosystems and agriculture. It’s a perfect time to celebrate the birds, bugs and lizards that are so essential to the crops we grow, the flowers we smell, and the plants that produce the air we breathe.

The other day in my garden bed while applying mulch around the herbs in my raised beds I caught a whiff of rosemary and oregano from my young plants, and oh was it a delightful and enchanting whisper of things to come.
