Creating a Pollinator Habitat for Growing Workshop can be helpful whether you are a homeowner interested in developing a small patch of natural habitat, a landowner looking to make use of a fallow field or a farmer looking to pollinate crops.

It will be held from 6- 8 pm Tuesday, May 17 at the Carnahan Center, Jamestown Community College, 525 Falconer St., Jamestown.

Learn how to develop a pollinator habitat from Pat Martonis, Master Gardener volunteer with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Chautauqua County.

Creating a habitat for wildlife can be beneficial to humans and the environment. Attracting native pollinators increases vegetable and fruit production and birds and other small mammals can help control pests. Natural surroundings can be as large as a pollinator strip in agricultural fields or just small patch at your house.

The workshop is part of the L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. And Farm) Program. The workshop series is open to beginning farmers, established farms looking to diversify and grow, agriculture enthusiasts, homesteaders and gardeners.

Workshops are $5 per participant. Pre-registration is required. Register here; call 716-664-9502, ext. 209, or email lpc33@cornell.edu.
