Pollinators appreciate PolliNation

If the pollinators of North America listened to podcasts, I believe they would love this informative, engaging and entertaining podcast and all who listen and learn from it. Keep up the good work! The pollinators need all the support we can give them!

Natives are my jam!

Native bees are my jam! I work on a Flagship Farm (where wine grapes, olives and lavender grow) and this podcast is a great way to learn about new ways to continue to provide habitat for pollinators as well as providing great info to curious patrons! Thanks for all you do!
