Pollinator Summit – Chaska, MN
September 15th, 2017
9:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum- MacMillan Auditorium
Across the US and increasingly across the world, the Xerces Society is working with farmers large and small to create a new model of agriculture that integrates pollinators and beneficial insects at all levels. In this talk, Xerces Pollinator Conservation Program co-director, Eric Lee-Mäder will provide an overview of the state of the art approaches to pollinator conservation in farmlands, and will share real world case studies of the diverse farms and major food companies that are leading this movement. Connections between pollinator conservation and other environmental goals such as soil health, carbon sequestration, and water quality protection will be explored under the emerging concept of regenerative agriculture.
