San Francisco Plants a Victory Garden with Pollinators in Mind

This July folks gathered in downtown San Francisco to plant a garden right in front of city hall. The garden contains organic vegetables, herbs and other native plants. Food grown in the garden will be donated to those with limited access to healthy produce through a partnership with local food banks and meals programs. The Pollinator Partnership happily donated pollinator friendly plants from Annie's Annuals.

“Pollinators, the Future of Food and Biodiversity”

An Intimate Dinner with E.O. Wilson

The Pollinator Partnership was fortunate to have an opportunity to host Dr. E.O. Wilson and a small group of guests at the Intercontinental Hotel, Boston for dinner and discussion on “Pollinators and the Future of Food and Biodiversity.” Dr. Wilson has been the subject of PBS specials, won several Pulitzer Prizes and been awarded the Crafoord Prize, the scientific equivalent of the Nobel Prize.  He is one of the great conservation thinkers of the 21st century, and also one of the most beloved individuals in science for his down-to-earth nature and his keen wit and humor. It was an evening to be remembered. (PDF)
