The Nantucket Land Council invites you to support the island environment by Planting for Pollinators on Nantucket! Pollinators are critical components to a healthy ecosystem. By selecting the right plants, following a few guidelines, and staying pesticide free, you can create important pollinator habitat in just a small area. Consider re-purposing some lawn or converting an existing garden bed. The plants suggested through their program will require less water and less fertilizer than most, leading to improved water quality and overall sustainability. When you ditch the chemicals and work with nature, you support greater biodiversity and ecosystem health from the soil to the sky.
When you register for this program you will receive our do-it-yourself guide to creating a small, medium or large pollinator friendly garden.
Help spread the word! We can build a network of pollinator habitat, and beautiful natural spaces across Nantucket from our own backyards. Happy Planting!
