You are not on your own if you want to promote pollinators!  This webinar will feature stories, tips, and techniques from farmers who have tried planting monarch/pollinator habitat on their own land with varying degrees of success.  They will share the good, bad, and ugly of seed mixes, seedbed prep, and multi-year management so you can get a sense of what you might be getting into.
