Your Self-Sufficient Backyard Homestead Garden: Grow More Food With Your Pollinator Garden (Paperback)
The catastrophes of climate change are upon us. We see floods, droughts, and wildfires on the news regularly.
But have you ever stopped to think about the impact of these events on our food supply?
Due to climate change, the number of bees and butterflies in Europe is declining rapidly. The US alone has lost 45.5% of its honey bee colonies from April 2020 to April 2021 according to a survey conducted by the nonprofit Bee Informed Partnership (BIP).
Here's why these numbers are so alarming: 75% of global crops rely on animal pollination.
The UN World Food Programme reports 957 million people don't have enough food. Unfortunately, without pollinators, this is only going to get worse.
To compensate for the lack of pollinators, companies are using more and more chemicals to grow food, a practice that can result in serious health consequences.
What if there was a way to grow nutritious fruits and vegetables right from your own backyard garden, attract native pollinators, and encourage them to thrive, resulting in more food in your kitchen?
And what if we told you that it was far easier than you thought? Think of it as your own organic edible plants in your backyard garden landscape.
