Attracting Pollinators
to Fruit Trees

Brenda Lee Calvert from Halfmoon Farm
joins us to talk about what home gardeners can do to help support a diverse community of pollinators to their yards – so important for fruit production! She’ll suggest plants that provide abundant nectar, pollen, and larvae food and talk about gardening techniques that support pollinator health and describe some of the fascinating and helpful pollinators that you, too, can admire in your garden.
