We've gone statewide!
Western Mass Pollinator Networks (WMPN) began accidentally in May of 2016 on a vacation to Asheville, NC with my neighbor Gale. At the Visitor Center we spotted a beautiful native flower garden labeled prominently with an educational sign:
“Pollinator Friendly Habitat”
A flow of ideas for supporting native pollinators back home arose spontaneously. Until June of 2021, volunteers all over western Massachusetts created a meaningful and vibrant movement yard by yard, community by community to begin building an interconnected web of healthy pollinator habitats.
On June 22, the Massachusetts Pollinator Network was launched, a project of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA/Mass), now headed by Rosemary Malfi, the new Network Coordinator. Click the logo above to travel to the new project's website (under construction, summer 2021).
