(Full Conference January 17th – 19th)
College Park Marriott Hotel
Join Nancy Adamson of the Xerces Society and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service for this session at the Future Harvest 20th Anniversary Conference to learn ways to better support the bees and other wildlife that help ensure abundant harvests, keep our ecosystems healthy, enrich our communities, and potentially add to your farm’s revenue stream. Native shrubs, trees, and wildflowers; cover crops; and annual flowers support pollination and pest management on farms and in home gardens. Besides vital pollen, nectar, and shelter supporting bees, butterflies, and other wildlife, plant borders can provide crucial watershed protection, plus additional income with nuts, berries, cut flowers, or ornamental cuttings. Visit with Nancy in the trade-show area, too!
