Our Sandy Gets an Award

By Ted Farnworth

Friends of the Earth plaque

The subject of pollinators is hot one right now. More and more people are coming to understand how important these insects are, especially because of the role they play in the growing of many fruits and vegetables. We, at the Fletcher, often tell people that one of our objectives is to create a “garden” that is friendly to insects especially pollinators. Over the years we have build up a lot of experience with pollinators that we want to share. Sandy Garland has been working with a number of local groups giving them advice and help to create sites that are pollinator friendly, and this year she has worked at establishing pollinator gardens at the FWG. For her efforts, Sandy has recently received a Bee Cause Champion Award plaque from the Friends of the Earth organization for her work on protecting native bees. Congratulations Sandy!
