How do you move an acre of plastic and plant an acre of native seeds? With little wind (hopefully), plenty of sun and lots of hands.

Why a pollinator meadow? The demonstration pollinator meadow engages and educates local community members and collaborators in site preparation, seeding, and the ongoing maintenance of accessible fields planted with native grasses and wildflowers. Bees and other pollinators are essential components of NH’s agricultural systems and natural ecosystems. These species rely on abundant sources of pollen and nectar for survival. By planting bee gardens and flowering meadows, we can help support this critical natural resource. Workshops for landowners to learn about the mechanics of successfully establishing pollinator habitat on their property are planned and monitoring for pollinator usage of the meadows will engage citizen scientists of all ages.
