Are you wondering where I’ve been? I’ve been knee deep in planning of Tangipahoa Parish Master Gardener Association Pollination Celebration (tpmga). Yes, really!
Practically this whole year has been nothing but work on this event and before very long, it will be here.
There have been other things going on as well, but the main focus has been this “educational experience”.
I promise to try to make more frequent posts (I know….I always make promises don’t I?) But I really will try to do better.
What is Pollination Celebration 2016? It is a one-day educational experience hosted by TPMGA. It will be held at LSU/AgCenter Hammond Research Station, Hammond, LA on September 24, 2016 from 9a.m.–3p.m.
There will be great speakers on the subject of pollination, workshops for adults and children alike, vendors and more. If you like bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, native plants be sure to check our blog for more info:
It will focus on the pollinators in our world, why they are important, what we can do to attract more of them to our gardens, how we can better protect them.
Did you know? No pollinators/pollination—No food from the plant world?
It’s true! If we don’t have pollinators to carry pollen from flower to flower, we won’t have fruits & veggies to eat? There are very few plants that do not require pollination by insects to produce the fruit/vegetables. Tomatoes are one but I don’t think I can live on tomatoes alone—as much as I like them.
