Did you know that insect pollinators affect a third of the global crop production? Unfortunately, many of these pollinators, including native bees and butterflies, are on the decline. Are you interested in helping our native pollinators? One easy way to help is by adding a pollinator garden. You can learn how to create a pollinator-friendly garden at our Master Gardener℠  volunteers of Currituck County Speakers’ Bureau class titled “Pollinator Gardening” on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at 9 a.m. at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center in Barco. This class will focus on adding native flowers and trees, nesting sites, host plants, and limiting pesticide use in the garden. Register online at  go.ncsu.edu/mgspeakersbureau, or call the Currituck office at (252) 232-2262.

Master Gardener℠  volunteers of Currituck County are active, knowledgeable gardeners who are available to give presentations on a variety of gardening topics. All volunteers are trained by N. C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center’s staff. Educational programs may include PowerPoint slides, demonstrations or hands-on activities for adults or children.
