Growing plants that support pollinators
In 2017, the Pocket became part of The Butterflyway, a project of the David Suzuki Foundation to plant a long interconnected path of bee and butterfly-friendly gardens. At the entrance to Phin Park sits a blue canoe surrounded by plants and wildflowers - all chosen to support pollinators such as native birds, bees and butterflies!
What’s a pollinator? An insect or other animal that moves pollen around and between flowers, to fertilize the plants. Pollinators are needed for about ⅓ of our food to grow!
