Planting for Pollinators
Did you know that Middlesex Centre is a signatory to the Mayors’ Monarch Pledge, joining hundreds of communities across Canada, the US and Mexico in committing to create monarch butterfly/pollinator habitat?

Pollinators like butterflies, birds and bees are important to healthy ecosystems and essential to much of our food supply.

If you are heading to the garden centre or greenhouse over the next few weeks, consider plants that attract pollinators. Landscape Ontario has some great tips to making your garden more pollinator friendly to get you started!
