How about posting info on how to get our pollinator gardens certified? Would love to be certified this spring!
A timely question! The state MG coordinator, Ginger P. is working with our own Alex S. on a program to certify "Pollinator Friendly" gardens here in Pennsylvania. I'll create a post on that when I have more information on the program. In the meantime, the Monarch Waystation program has a certification process described here:http://www.loudounwildlife.org/PDF_Files/Certify_A_Waystation.pdfThe only other certified program that I'm aware of, is provided by the National Wildlife Federation for "Backyard Habitat" for all wildlife, including pollinators. That program is described here:http://www.nwf.org/gardenforwildlife/create.cfm?CFID=23944371&CFTOKEN=8b5d3cf981b96036-FAAC3345-5056-A868-A0F21ADB07B4147DStay tuned for more information about Penn State's program.
I really love this blog.
