Make Every Week Pollinator Week

at Goffle Brook Farms

What is a pollinator?

“A pollinator is an animal that causes plants to make fruit or seeds. They do this by moving pollen from one part of the flower of a plant to another part. This pollen then fertilizes the plant. Only fertilized plants can make fruit and/or seeds, and without them, the plants cannot reproduce.”

National Pollinator Week – June 17th thru June 23rd 2019

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.

For the next several days, we will be sharing updates on how you can help support these important creatures, during Pollinator Week, and throughout the year. Pollinator gardens are an excellent way to help and to get you started check out our page Pollinator Gardens.

So how do insects like bees and butterflies pollinate plants. You can find out here and watch a great video of a butterfly pollinating plants also.
