Event description

Description

You may have heard that the pollinator population is in trouble. Find out how this affects pollination of vegetables and ornamental plants and what the home gardener can to do attract native insect pollinators. Many of the same gardening practices will also attract insects that provide natural pest control and other beneficial services. Marc Radell, one of our most popular presenters, returns to us with this presentation.

Marc Radell has been a Master Gardener Volunteer with the Penn State Extension of Montgomery County since January 2002, where he conducts educational outreach about eco-friendly gardening, native plants, and attracting wildlife. Marc lives on a 4.5 acre property in central Montgomery County, which is certified as a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat and a Monarch Butterfly Way Station. His goal is to reestablish native plant communities and thus attract birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Professionally, Marc works as an Environmental Planning Manager at a leading engineering firm.
