Hosted by Lower Shore Land Trust this FREE event is the largest pollinator festival in Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia, it brings together more than 1,000 students, plant-lovers, vendors, community members, nonprofit partners & more, to celebrate our native pollinators.
As we all know, pollinator populations have been on a sharp decline over the past decade and that is a big problem because “1 out of every 3 bites of food we eat requires pollination.” Furthermore, “more than 90% of all known flowering plants, and almost all fruits, vegetables and grains, require pollination to produce crops.
This all-ages, family-friendly event, along the Pocomoke River, will include live music, local food, crafts, kids-activities, and much more! This event helps to educate community members about the benefits of our resource-based industries. Attendees can also purchase from hundreds of native plants and take them to their home or business – further supporting the pollinators that give us healthy, local foods.
Plant pre-orders are highly recommended to guarantee availability. Stay tuned for plant list and link to pre-order form!
