We are extremely concerned about the rapid decline in insect populations,
especially pollinators, not just honey bees. Our farming practices
have increased the insect population on our farm very significantly
since we began, but we had decided to devote more land to preserving
insect habitat. Ensuring that insects have places to live and overwinter
as well as providing large amounts of flowering plants for them
to feed upon. Plus plants dedicated to larva (caterpillar) feeding.
This will reduce our workable farmland but we think it is essential
that insects have somewhere they can survive and flourish until
such time as farming practices change and they can expand their
range once again. You can also help to save the insects in your
own yard. It's easy. We have created a series
of articles to help you make a few small changes to your own
yard which can help save the bees and other insects and in some
small part reduce global warming by sequestering carbon. Come join
us in helping to save the planet!
