More than Pretty Flowers: The Evolution of a Native Pollinator Garden in Downtown Phoenix

November 13, 2021
 

Imagine you are given the worst piece of ground to create a garden – hot, dry, south facing, along a sidewalk, and busy road. What would you do? Why not make a beautiful garden, and make a statement at the same time! Join Kristina Lefever of Pollinator Project Rogue Valley as she shares the transition of the garden over the last two years – the plants, the pollinators, and the people.

Seriously? Seeds! Their Beauty, Magic, and Science 
October 27, 2021

Seeds are a miracle - without them life as we know it would literally not exist.

Join Pollinator Project Rogue Valley and seed whisperer Arti Kirch as she shares the everyday marvel of seeds, with all of their rich diversity of forms, shapes, and colors​. What is a seed? How do they "start"? Why are they important, and how do they turn into plants that serve people and pollinators ...... or is it we who serve the plants?

Talkin' Pollinators and Gardens
July 29, 2021


Kristina Lefever leads a casual conversation at Dunn Ranch Center for Food and Agriculture about all things Pollinator. Under a tree, on a lovely evening, we talked about the whys and hows of native pollinators, mostly bees, but also butterflies, wasps, moths, and more! And the ways we can provide more and better pollinator habitat in our gardens and landscapes, and for the creatures that depend upon them.

   "I attended the class at Dunn Ranch this summer on pollinator gardens. I have rarely been so impacted by a class in such a short amount of time. I learned a little bit about the importance of bees in the pollination dance, and more about just how many species there are other than honey bees. I learned a little bit about the critically important role pollinators play in the balance of our planet. And I learned just enough to inspire me to learn more, much more and to commit to a native pollinator garden focus on our new property in Phoenix. 

  So grateful I had the opportunity and grateful to you and your project for helping to spread this important information.

Best, Della"
