As more people take an active role in urban food production and local food sovereignty, urban farming spaces are increasing in many cities. Alongside food production, small urban farms and community gardens are valuable locations for adding native habitat pockets, strips, hedgerows and pollinator gardens. These habitats can be designed to offer a wide array of benefits, from helping wildlife, crop pollination and pest control to benefitting water quality, stormwater management and community.
Join us as we discuss the role of pollinators in urban landscapes and see examples of projects to add native habitat in these spaces. You will also learn techniques you can use on your small urban farm or community garden to boost native biodiversity.
