The Pollinator Times
by Kristina Lefever
Last year we asked our readers what they thought about The Pollinator Times. Here are some of the comments that stood out for us from the 34 respondents:
Length of time reading the e-newsletter? 67%: a year or longer
Overall rating? 76%: excellent
Information about native plants and pollinators and the fact that it is science-based but with a heart connection. Not just "oh aren't the butterflies pretty, plant more alien flowers they like". Not always the easiest or happiest information, but real information.
It's easy to read and educational.
I like to hear about events coming up and often register through the link provided in the newsletter.
Variety & education regarding best pollinator plants.
Local community resource that normalizes pollinator habitat.
Everything... it's well put together providing lots of info on different subjects.
I like the local focus on Rogue Valley.
4. Improvements / Suggestions?
I’d like to have 1-2 line reminders for upcoming events a few days in advance
Feature one pollinator matched with one pollinator native plant to learn about both with pictures
Gardening tips for our clay/rock/forest habitat
Simple tip of the month
