May 2, 2020: 2020 Delmarva Pollinator Festival & 13th Annual Native Plant Sale (Snow Hill)
Date: May 2, 2020
Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: 100 River St snow hill
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!
