Collaborate with your neighbours to support our local bees, butterflies and other important pollinators that contribute to healthy ecosystems. These ecosystems in turn supply us with oxygen, clean air, water and nutritious foods. They also support plant pollination, provide eco-friendly pest control, manage water tables and runoff, as well as recreation and spiritual benefits.
The CBL Collective Pollinator Patch Project encourages residents to designate a section of their yard for pollinators – in place of mono-culture grass and non-native plants and flowers – and hopefully to inspire their neighbours to do the same. This can be as small as a plant pot or as big as your entire yard!
Register, seed &/or plant, water & post a lawn sign by May 23rd to be entered to win a grand prize of local eco-friendly prizes.
Unsure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Check out our Information Package for contest rules and conditions, selecting, planting and caring for your pollinator patch and more.
Don’t have a green thumb? No problem. Check out our low maintenance drought resistant biodiverse lawn seed or wild flower seed bomb ideas.
We can’t wait to #rewildCBL with you!
