A week in celebration of pollinators?

In the United States, they are celebrating Pollinator Week (19-25th June). In Britain, they have a Pollinator Awareness Week which runs in July. Isn’t it time we in Ireland did something similar? After all pollinators are in decline worldwide and we can all do our bit to help pollinators in our local areas.

So this week I hope to post a few extra pollinator posts to start an “Irish Pollinator Week” of sorts. I will post the posts here and on a blog I share with a friend, Wild Pollinator Gardens.

And I ask each of you, where ever you are in the world, to think about posting at least one pollinator post or photo over this next week.

    I’ll do that tomorrow–thanks so much for the reminder! I’ve been so happy about the large number of bumblebees buzzing around our farm this year so far 🙂

    I live in the USA and I did not know it was Pollinator week. Thank you for educating me! I have been so busy trying to keep my garden going in this roller coaster weather we are having in hte USA-midwest. We had summer in spring????crazy and a battle with growing things this year, but now things seem to be settling down.

      It seems to be the way of things these days Robbie. We had warm May, then start of June was cold and wet and now we’re back to warm – with East coast having very warm. We just got to keep trying no matter what the weather throws at us!!
